I was introduced to Jalaliyyih’s paintings through Facebook.  I knew right away that she had somehow tapped into the beauty of the next world.  She seemed to be painting from a place most people could not reach while living.  Her images portray a spiritual playground where the souls in the spiritual world still interact with the material world and magically depicts the forces that act upon the universe we live in. I am excited to introduce you to Jalaliyyih Quinn and her artwork.  The following is Jalaliyyih’s Interview.

[Sorry, I digress]

`Abdu’l-Bahá tells us that the next world is within this world.  Let me find that quote: Read more
