I wrote the following hybrid Artist Bio – Art Statement for the Healing Collection:

Sterling is a Canadian spontaneous visual artist with Indigenous ancestry. In 2007, as an artistically guided therapeutic method for counselling, he began innovating the Auracature style of line art.

The sacred feather quill drawn black and white India ink images gained global attention as a “Psychic” art form because collectors could see their life stories reflected in the commissioned art pieces. Sterling describes his current art form as Intuitive Graphic Impressionism. At clients’ requests, some of his hand-drawn artwork is digitally coloured and printed onto canvas.


In September 2017, he created his purely abstract collection: “Healing.” Although over 3000 original drawings have been commissioned, Sterling’s “Healing” collection on sculpted board is being publicly debuted at Amandala’s Fine Dining Restaurant in Peterborough, Ontario (September 24-28, 2019). As of September 2019, 6 of the 22 pieces have been purchased by patrons. 

Having grown up playing in the woods in rural Ontario, Sterling developed an affinity for trees, wildflowers, gently flowing streams and most of all, wild grapevines. Sterling’s crisp Auracature style images are inspired by the winding grapevine silhouettes cast upon the sky. His favourite meditative practice is to crawl into a thicket, lay on his back, and look into the heavens. As the sunlight fills the negative space left open by the vines, white images appear among the blackened silhouettes. In Auracature art, the viewer first notices the universally inclusive animal and plant images set in the black lines. Then the etheric, spiritual images appear in the white “negative space.” Sterling says, “The real art is experienced in the white. The black ink becomes the “negative space,” if there is one.”

Sterling has been known for his eye for beauty commonly hidden in the bustle of life. From an early age, Sterling has viewed life as a surreal experience whereby life is found in the most unlikely situations. Even when he began selling his graphite drawings of local farms at 15 years old, he captured the essence of farm life and the personification of buildings. Sterling is an outdoors enthusiast who is an avid tree hugger, rock collector and amateur nature photographer. He records what he feels and hears more that what he sees.

His optimistic, inviting, pleasant “distortions” of our everyday worlds challenge the viewers’ perceptions of creation while assuring that everything is going to be okay. 

Sterling Sinclair is his “nom de plume.” He chose this fitting name, as an artist and spiritual counsellor, because it means “Pure Hope.” In 1993, Sterling was in a tragic motor vehicle accident that resulted in a traumatic closed head injury. He was a college professor and his injuries prevented him returning to teaching. He was unable to embrace his art for over 10 years.

To heal, he and his family built a cottage on Moira Lake between Tweed and Madoc, Ontario. While there, he, once again in the forest, found his love to draw. He believes that it was through visual art creation that he found wellness. He was assured of this one truth: We Must Never Give Up! From that one truth, Sterling innovated the hopeful Auracature art technique and his creative counselling process.

In 2017, “Healing,” the abstract Auracature collection, was born. Sterling invites you to view and purchase pieces of this magnificent wellness-inspired collection at Amandala’s Fine Dining restaurant.

“Healing” is an original, meaningful, one-of-a-kind collection that puts a new stamp of artistic expressionism upon the face of contemporary Fine Art.

This is the door prize we are offering.

I hope you can come out Saturday night. If not, rest assured, there will be other events/sales in the near future too.
