"Spiritiles are about positivity," Houston says. The stories on Spiritiles golden sides are specially selected to capture the enlightened moment. Take a look at Fair Winds, #246: "Life is a balance of holding on and letting go." This Rumi quote is accompanied by dandelion seeds taking flight in the wind. Or hear Charles Schultz wisely proclaim on #222, Seamate: "In life, it's not where you go, but who you travel with." In red high heels, Marilyn Monroe reminds us on #052, Ms.: if we "Give a girl the right shoes, she can conquer the world." Rarely will you find a negative on a Spiritile. Upward bound stories are one of the most important aspects to Houston Llew Art. Houston is a man of deep southern roots; his studio is in the vibrant city of Atlanta. Formally educated at Auburn and schooled by the great art museums and masters of the world, Houston dabbled with careers in logistics, accounting and poker before finding his true calling: abstracting the levity of life in art.
