My name is Sandy Frazier and I am the author of "The Mystic Artist" (book) - a book I spent many years writing and researching. My purpose here is to expand upon my book and bring forth more insight into many of the topics of my book, as well as to offer commentary on today's cultural/art scene.
At my Web site, I post book reviews, I have a store with many of the products I recommend, as well as links to wonderful books, music, DVDs, gifts and art to inspire. For visual fine artists, I also offer a page of art links.
Listen to my original songs on my music page. To view my art, please visit my galleries... and I've got lots of original photography on Flickr. Check out my Facebook page.
In this blog, I'll be reflecting on my art as well as covering the cultural scene - in the world of art, music, movies, books, literature and more. I hope you enjoy my blog and find it inspiring and informative!
