The Four Gates Foundation | Art by Ross Heaven
Ross creates original art which stems from his shamanic experiences of healing, journeying and working with teacher plants. The rainforest and mountains of Peru are also an inspiration, as is the folk art of Mexico. Paintings are mainly acrylic, oil and pen on canvas but usually also include ‘found objects’ and natural materials which give the pieces a three-dimensional look and feel.

Original Art by Ross Heaven

Ross creates original art which stems from his shamanic experiences of healing, journeying and working with teacher plants. The rainforest and mountains of Peru are an inspiration, as is the folk art of Mexico. Paintings are mainly acrylic, oil and pen on canvas but usually also include ‘found objects’ and natural materials (such as metal, dirt, leaves, flowers, beads, crystals and stones) which give the pieces an organic three-dimensional look and feel.

Ross also undertakes private commissions and healing pieces (original artwork blessed with healing intention and prayers according to your needs), giving you a unique piece of shamanic art which only you will ever own.

Sizes are good approximations and in inches Height X Width. Prices are in £ Great British Pounds (GBP) and include post and packing within Europe (the canvas will be rolled where possible but sometimes the painting may need to be sent on the frame). All pieces are signed. Some prices may be open to negotiation.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these pieces or commissioning a new piece for yourself, contact Ross.
