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.

Driving my Healing Auracature to Peterborough – I was So excited!

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.

After my much needed time off, which I called a retirement, my health returned and I am back in business.  www.auracature.com for further details.

I have been going through my archives and found several hundred originals.  During the process of sorting, I could notice that various voices have been channeled over the year.  Today, I was prompted to draw again and this was the image.  These faces are seen in a handful of images that I have drawn over the last 8 years.

Thanks for walking with me.

As for this channel just in today. Notice the number of faces and what you see when you spin it slowly. Remember, when viewing Auracature Art, most of the images recorded are found in the negative space.

Secretly Stalking

Eclipse, Spring Equinox, Super Moon.  

March 18, 2015

Feeling strange?  Feeling a bit off?

Maybe even nauseated but wanting eat?

The atmospheric vibrations coupled with solar storms and universal alterations and astrological movement are being felt big time.

For me, it started 3 days ago.

From what I can tell, it is likely to get worse before better.

This link explains how this amazing event is like effecting us through an astrological means:


Many spiritual guides advise us to embrace the energy of this probable once in a lifetime experience, but if we are messed up to the point we just need to booze ourselves to sleep then embracing is not likely possible.

As this Auracature shows, there is more to our anxieties and unease than what first meets the third eye.

What even is this?  I thought it was an opened and used envelope at first and then it turned into what looks like an owl-cat hybrid.

Nonetheless, it is watching.  May these posts having to do with the energies might help.

Here is the trifecta:  http://yournewswire.com/three-celestial-events-on-friday-solar-eclipse-supermoon-spring-equinox/

Then we toss in the geomagnetic storm: http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2015/03/17/solar-geomagnetic-storm/24901903/

and the lack of earthquakes across North America and the pacific rim for most of the day.

Silence before the storm?

God help us if it is.

Stay safe, warm and as relaxed as you can be.

During times like these, it is most often best to let life slide through.

We are in this all together.

Oracle Sterling Sinclair Psychic Auracature Art Ice Fishing Cottage Humor – Sick of Winter this Year? Looks Like Spring is Coming. March 12, 2015

If you have ice fished you will relate to this photo.  You kind of want to leave that fish hut on the ice as long as possible for one last chance to catch the big one.  Although I don’t ice fish any more, many people on our lake do.  It is common to catch some good size fish even at this time of year, but normally the ice is getting wafer thin.  Not this year.

Nonetheless, this winter has been brutal around here.  Bring on the warm weather.

I hope this gives you a chuckle.  It did me…

I Learned to Fly in the Darkness,

Psychic Sterling Sinclair Life Coach Medium Counselling Auracature Art  Madoc Tweed Belleville Poem Illustration Fly Mother Nature Umbrella Boy


Flying in the Darkness


Deep beneath the canopy of day

A forest boy was I

With umbrella leaves and shadows so dark

I couldn’t see the bluest of sky


No matter the path I felt to follow

No matter the bridges I crossed

My hook and pole guided me through

No life I missed – No life I lost


Friends unseen as forest sounds they made

Babble, babble the babbling brook did call

In this world I couldn’t see my way

But never a day I feared I’d fall


Thatched branches too thick to pass

I’d close my eyes and see God’s hand

On fairy wings I’d lift and float

I was a boy but one with the land


No matter how dense the vines would twine

No matter how thorny they’d cut my side

I was home in the woods

I chose not to hide


In my threatening world of darkness

The forest breathed hope for me to roam

Tucked under Her wings I never felt fear

She gave me roots – She gave me my home


Deep beneath the canopy of day

A forest boy was I

Without much light for me to grow

My Mother stooped down…


She taught me to fly.

Love you, Sterling Sinclair (11/24/14)
