in my own words: a spiritual and artistic journey into freedom within Hello, my name is Stephey Baker. I'm a transcendentalist artist, spiritual counselor, writer and Master-Instructor IETâ„¢/Reiki. I employ art and the creative process not only to produce work in concept, graphic design, text and photograph, but also to navigate the highs and lows of creating an inspired life. The development and use of art and creativity as life process became my daily practice in over coming frustration. It led me to pursue a degree in spiritual counseling, which I attained from Gateway University. I support your journey into creative living, encouraging the creation of your masterpiece called LIFE. My creative journey as an artist, has taken many twists and turns, one of them being pursuing a license as a spiritual counselor. This was never part of the original vision. I had a passion for philosophy and religious studies while in high school. This passion became a second major in Art School but the Art was the reason for being in school.
