Lumière™ LLC was formed in 2010 by artist and Crystal Illumination Art™
creator Gail R. Mitchell to "bring the transformative quality of
illumination, light and color to the human experience and celebrate its
ability to inspire, heal and nourish our physical, mental, emotional
and spiritual well-being."
is a universal language. It is my aspiration to continue lighting the
way for people to experience this transformative sensory art experience.
Ms. Mitchell is an
artist, entertainer, entrepreneur and visionary. Born and raised
in New York City, she has had a life-long interest in the arts.
Gail has developed and honed her innovative patent-pending Crystal
Lumière™ prismatic art for more than five years. She created her
unique art form without formal training, stumbling upon the process
when she was working on a theatrical lighting project. She
immediately began experimenting, suspending crystals from various
heights and angles and directing different types of light through
them. Having studied and worked with energy and alternative
healing, she was aware of the effects of color and light in
psychosomatic and neurophysiological medicine and initially used her
light paintings for healing.
The response to her first installation was so overwhelming, she
realized this was a new art form. Her work is about interactively
engaging the viewers' senses, allowing a transcendental experience to
take place, leaving behind a visual mystery.
Gail is the creator of Empowering Caregivers (www.care-givers.com)
and was the founder of the National Organization For Empowering
Caregivers to provide resources and referrals along with educational,
emotional and spiritual support to family members and professionals who
care for the chronically or terminally ill, disabled or elderly. She
was keynote speaker at many conferences, conducted ongoing workshops on
care giving and published over 200 articles and journal exercises.
She also founded Sedona Source,
a destination management company, where she worked with seminar leaders
and corporations to create programs that took place outdoors, using
nature to help participants experience mindfulness in their lives. She
created custom art tours that brought perspective clients into various
artists’ studios and homes. Previously, her company JM Productions
produced special events, fundraisers, commercials, industrial and trade
shows. Gail designed sets, props, magic illusions and costumes and
created décor for special events.
Now, she has
channeled her past experience into Crystal Lumière™ LLC and introduced
the unique Crystal Lumière™ Prismatic Art Installation Kits. Gail is
lighting the way for people who want to experience this transformative
art form and sensory experience in their own homes, retail businesses,
healing places and public spaces.
