About

Visionary shamanistic art created by the love-duo of LovescapesArt

Twin Flames, One Love

LovescapesArt are visionary paintings and collaborative murals by artists Broňa Wingell & Ritchie Sinclair.

Their breathtaking art features UV-reactive paintings that celebrate and chronicle the magical experience of love shared by the artists.

Known as “medicine art” or “vibrational art”, this talismanic energy and imagery has been passed down from ancient shamanic sources that are as beneficial and relevant today as they were eons ago. Lovescapes Art reconnects us to the organic, the universal and the sacred, enticing us to explore, create, and perhaps become; love.

Broňa Wingell from Bratislava, Slovakia, now resides in Toronto, Canada. She has a deep reverence for the spirit in all things and paints for the beauty inherent in the process.

Ritchie Sinclair, of Scottish lineage from Thunder Bay, Canada, apprenticed with shaman artist, Norval Morrisseau, and is a founding member of the Thunderbird School of Shamanistic Art.

The two partners-in-love paint, teach and exhibit together.


Ritchie Sinclair, Bio

Ritchie Sinclair a.k.a. Stardreamer was the only artistic apprentice of non-Native genealogy to work extensively with Ojibwa Grand Shaman and world-renowned aboriginal artist; the late Norval Morrisseau. Caught between the reverberating values of two cultures yet belonging to neither one, Sinclair’s work is a hybrid, borrowing from the strengths of each culture to create a foundation of insight that provides a significant message to both.

The art of Ritchie Sinclair is the story of the greater inclusive family of Humanity; which goes beyond borders, boundaries and bloodlines. His art expresses a profound sense of perfection, resolution, balance and harmony. His colourful paintings exhibit sensually rich archetypes that resonate with a profound, yet simple message. His works have been displayed at prominent events throughout his successful career.

These include; Arts Against Apartheid in 1986, where, at the request of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, his two-part work entitled; 'Lighthouse' was showcased at all the major events and gatherings. In 1994, Mr. Sinclair's mural; "The Meeting Place", a 21' X 16', 28 canvas, cross-cultural dynamo of vibrant imagery and colour was featured for the first Toronto International Pow Wow. In December 2001, thousands of Sinclair’s “Heartfelt Crests” were distributed at various ceremonies during the "Canada Loves New York" initiative.

Beyond exhibiting his work for the public, Sinclair feels his most satisfying contribution to the world is in his work with young people. He often visits Toronto area schools to initiate co-creative art projects with children so that they may also learn to experience and express their own creative potential. As a spirit-driven creator, Sinclair believes that we are all a part of the great Earthship; each of us a steward of its destiny, each of us intimately connected to one another by the common thread of our humanity, and that it is our shared privilege to create the world we want.

Brona Wingell - path to art and love story:
I am an artist!

The Journey of Life can become a winding road full of unexpected turns and encounters. In walking my own road I learned that trusting my intuition and Spirit is always the best way and that every new day is a reason to celebrate.

In October 2010, following a number of tragic circumstances, I packed up my life into 5 suitcases and my four children and I relocated from Slovakia to Canada. We landed in a cozy one-bedroom apartment in mid-Toronto that instantly became my healing sanctuary. After a year I reluctantly had to admit the place grew too small and found a bigger one in the same complex. A man moved into our old apartment.

It was summer of 2013. I enrolled in College to study physiotherapy with the set goal of finding a good paying job to support my four kids. Although I had a career as a professional dancer and dance teacher behind me, I didn’t think of myself as an artist at all. In fact at that point the closest thing to art were mindless doodles on the margins of my physiotherapy books.

One day my daughter came home from a sidewalk chalk-drawing session and said, “Mommy, the guy who moved into our old apartment is an artist. His name is Ritchie. He said I am really good at art and if I want I could do a painting!” Later that week I met Ritchie in our local pizzeria and we talked for the first time. I was curious about his art and he agreed to show it to me.

Walking into his studio I was absolutely speechless. Ritchie’s art took me back in time to my childhood when the world was a magical colorful dream, everything was simple and life made sense. The love vibrations woven into Ritchie’s paintings made me cry. I sat there in his studio, looking at his paintings, tears running down my face, enchanted.

The weeks that followed our first connection were pure magic. It felt like a dream and often I had to pinch myself to make sure I was awake. A seed of love was planted that we carefully watered and pampered, and instantly it grew into a beautiful flower. Our first touches and kisses wore the innocence of teenagers experiencing their first time in love. At times our hearts cried from the abundance of emotions.

Meanwhile, inspired by Ritchie’s art, I bought myself my first sketchbook and found the courage to start drawing on the frighteningly blank pages.

In August 2013 I painted my first, and to this day, smallest painting ever. I kept it secret from Ritchie yet when I showed him my creation he was so thrilled and supportive it encouraged me to start painting another one right away. Soon we were painting side by side in Ritchie’s studio, my old apartment, which once again provided sweet sanctuary.

A few months and paintings later Ritchie suggested that we should have a group art show in a local café. It felt unreal for me to even consider being in the same show with real artists since I certainly didn’t see myself as one.

In February 2014 we celebrated our first mutual show appropriately entitled, Inspired by Love. As our love continued to flourish, our paintings multiplied. The creation of our first collaborative mural, Lovescape, also marked the beginning of my own personal recognition of myself as an artist.

Later that year I finished my physiotherapy studies with excellent marks yet I never felt compelled to take the jobs that were offered to me. My amazing children supported me in my decision, and continue to do so, despite the financial challenges we face as a family. When asked about their Mom, they proudly say, “She’s an artist!”

Ritchie and I have been partners in love and art for three years now. Our love bubble includes and nourishes all those we love. We never fight since there is nothing we could possibly fight about. We are known around the neighborhood as the barefoot lovers who share everything. We had a number of art shows, painted numerous collaborative murals, wrote a book, wrote an album full of songs and went on many canoe trips exploring Ontario’s Parks. We’ve shared more than a thousand days & nights of fairytale love, celebrating every sunrise and every starry night as a precious gift.

We are not in a hurry to find out about the riches of tomorrow since today is here to be loved to live. Our time in this world is so short. I want to spend the rest of my time wisely, in love and fruitful creation, reaching out to inspire others through art and love.
