"Spiritiles are about positivity," Houston says. The stories on Spiritiles golden sides are specially selected to capture the enlightened moment. Take a look at The Way Home: "We cannot light another’s path without brightening our own," says Ben Sweetland accompanied by a majestic seaside lighthouse. Or hear Wallace Stevens echo on the waves on No. 065, "Perhaps the truth is found in a walk on the beach." In red high heels, Marilyn Monroe reminds us on No. 052, 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.
