About Katayoon Zandvakili

Go to the outer edge of your greatness ~ heard at a women’s retreat

The spirit world is everything ~ Hopi elder

A near-death experience many years ago gifted me with a fascination with angels, the unseen realms and the intuitive, healing arts. I view my work as a passage toward these other worlds, a way to stay connected to Spirit. I love living with aliveness and am learning to transcend trauma into acceptance, surrender, and joy. Especially now as we bear collective witness to the dissolution of the old structures on our dear planet, we can rise and be who we came here to be, as individuals, living at the outer edge of our greatness.

My paintings are held in private collections in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, and have been exhibited in a group show at the Barbara Anderson Gallery in Berkeley, at Swallowtail in San Francisco, at a solo show at Beyond Baroque in Venice, California, and at the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art as part of the Fashionistas Fight Back! group show. From April 2021 through mid-January 2022, two series were exhibited at Frank + Lola here in Oakland, California. I feel happy and honored to have studied drawing and painting with Enid Braun in NYC (how I miss it!) all those oh years ago, and at CCA in San Francisco and Oakland. I was delighted to study the intuitive arts with the late Rev. John Fulton at Aesclepion in Marin.

From childhood, I have adored animals (who frequently come through my paintings—especially the big cats, dogs, wolves, rabbits, horses, and donkeys) and happily donate a generous portion of all sales to animal and humanitarian causes.
