Heart Portraits: Intuitive Art Readings
A Heart Portrait is an artistic way to offer insights into the state of one’s heart and life. The colors, textures, and forms of each heart portrait give information about a person, the relationships, joys and pains, the energy within, and/or the context surrounding the person.
“How long have you been tuning into people’s hearts?” she asked when I gave her a drawing of her heart.
I had been drawing hearts for several years. Most of the time, the drawings reflected the stirrings of my own heart, other times they showed how I saw the heart of the world. And sometimes, without the realizing I was even doing it, I was drawing reflections of other people’s hearts.
Two days after her question, I wrote in my journal, “I would like to draw people’s hearts.” Since then the images have been flooding in, at first for people I know; then, after reaching out to people in my networks, I began drawing for people I don't know. Vivid pictures, each unique, a snapshot of a heart at a point in time. I'd share each new image with the person and also share the insights learned through the process of creation and from the image itself. “Does that resonate? Does this feel true?” I ask. The answer, each time, has been yes, and yes, and yes . . .
Very quickly, I realized: This is my work. I am called to tune into people’s hearts, to draw the image that emerges, and to share the insights. It is an intuitive process, a sacred process; it is an honor.
Having our hearts seen is healing.
How It Works
When you commission a heart portrait, you are agreeing to allow me to tune in to your heart for a time, and to interpret what I discover through drawing.
The tuning in is not a process that requires communication or information- in fact, it is best for me to have no information about you beyond your name.
After creating the portrait, I provide a description to accompany the drawing, explaining the insights gained from the process. You will receive both the original 5" x 7" drawing AND the written interpretation by mail or in person. The process of tuning in, drawing, writing the interpretation, and readying both the portrait and interpretation for you takes 3 to 4 hours.
For an additional fee, you can also schedule a personal consultation - via phone or in person - for a deeper conversation about the insights.
Because people’s hearts are so beautiful, I share heart portrait photos on social media. No personal details about the client are shared with the photo.
"It was so empowering to receive Cory’s validation both in tangible form and over the phone in a session...
I have worked with sensitive and gifted healers and psychics in different capacities for the past 10 + years and I experience regular doses of magic and mystery in my private practice. The point being: it takes a lot to impress me these days. Cory floored me with her heart drawing and reading. It was so empowering to receive Cory’s validation both in tangible form and over the phone in a session. Hers is the kinds of gift that is very rare and doesn’t easily come by. Embrace the opportunity with open arms should you get the chance.”

"The experience of having my intuitive heart portrait drawn and interpreted by Cory was incredibly affirming and powerful...
She touched on things very deep within me - the deepest influences of my greatest joys and greatest pains - my connection to the earth and to spirit, my ability to be grounded and open my heart, my rich, beautiful relationships - and my tendency to open too much, allowing myself to be unnecessarily affected by negative energies too easily. She was able to depict and interpret symptoms of a debilitating anxiety disorder that I’ve dealt with on and off for the past 10 years. This was what impressed me the most, as it’s something I very rarely talk about with anyone. She has a very beautiful, rare, special, incredible gift!”
