My soul is solar powered. With every rising and setting of the sun, my heart heals, expands with love and compassion.
About the Artist: Summer Vaughn
A Ventura local & lifelong beachcomber, Summer Vaughn was always a sun-chaser at heart. It was the ocean, the sunsets, the people & connection to the community that healed her during difficult times. With every walk along the shoreline her heart let go of pain while she appreciated the present moment and the beauty of the community. With every breathtaking sunset, her soul bubbled with excitement. With every serendipitous conversation with a stranger, her heart opened with compassion and love.
Through personal struggles that forced Summer to stop and take the time to heal her heart & body. Spending hours in the sunshine connecting once again with Mother Earth did more than just heal. It awoke a passion. A passion to follow what her heart has always known. Encouraged by her 90-year old, talented, artist Gramma Darling, Summer decided to live her dream.
And thus, Art by Summer was born.
