Lily Marfisi

 Lily Marfisi was born in France, near Paris, to a Chinese-Vietnamese mother and a French-Venezuelan father. She grew up all over the world, changing countries almost every year with her parents and sister. Having to quickly adapt to new cultures, languages and relationships, she developed an intimate connection with the spiritual world of animals. They gave her strength and support in the midst of all these changes.

Later, Lily became a practitioner in native american and modern shamanism, and today she guides self transformation retreats in the Toulouse region, in the South West of France, where she works in intimate connection with the animals of the shamanic realm.

Lily began painting these power animals, also called totem animals, shortly after her beginnings in the shamanic world, when she felt a clear call from these animal-guides who wanted to be transposed onto canvas, so that others could benefit from their energy. Not knowing how to paint nor draw, in 2022 she signed up for an online art school, Milan Art Institute, and had the privilege of being personally mentored by founder and artist Elli Milan.

“My art is about bringing the spiritual realm into our reality. It’s about transforming our beliefs, believing that anything is possible, and letting power animals guide us through our life journey.”  Lily Marfisi

Her paintings are known to have a vibrational effect on the viewer, who feels a soul connection to the animal in front of them. Her paintings are also called “intuitive paintings” or “healing paintings”, due to the mystical energy that radiates from them. Furthermore, each artwork is accompanied by a message channeled by Lily Marfisi, according to the vibration of the painting.

Mainly using oil paintings on canvas, Lily also paints with watercolours as well as mixed media mediums such as inks, gold leaf and brilliant pigments, giving her works a dreamlike and magical style.

Today, Lily lives and works in Toulouse in the South West of France. She works full time, balancing a busy schedule between painting the mystical realm and leading transformational shamanic workshops.
