Hello my BELOVED SISTERS, my name is Dineta Williams-Trigg. I am a 3rd degree Wiccan, an intuitive and self proclaimed Witch and Goddess lover for more than 15 years.
Continuing my quest to help heal womynkind and earth mother heal by creating sacred space, thank you for letting me be of service to you.
Let’s come together and bond..it’s a part of our her-story. Without our sense of ourselves as sisters–companions and not competitors we cannot be transformed into a Bonded human community. Thanks again for allowing me to share some of the wisdom that I have learned on my journey.
Phoenix artist Marie Howell is a creator of sacred art, exploring both 2D and 3D media. Her work is the result of the Intentional Creativity process as taught by artist Shiloh Sophia McCloud. Marie’s paintings and sculptures are “downloaded” through deep connection and tuning in to her inner guidance. Each stage of her work is revealed in a step by step process as she listens within. She integrates traditional and non-traditional techniques and materials that express her original vision as she invites viewers into a personal encounter with her art that nurtures, transforms, and empowers. She is currently working primarily in acrylic painting and “assemblage” sculptural collage, adding the decorative element of embellishment and adornment to both. Since Marie works at a deeply intuitive level, her pieces encourage reflection and speak to the heart.
Marie’s art has been displayed in several local galleries and churches. She has been featured in Phoenix Home and Garden magazine and slides of her paintings were shown at the United Nations Conference on the Status of Women.
Additionally, Marie is a certified Cosmic Smashbooking Teacher. Cosmic Smashbooking is an Intentional Creativity process and tool developed by artist Catt Geller. Marie offers both one on one and group workshops in Cosmic Smashbooking. “Smashing” involves an art journaling exploration that provides insights through writing, painting, and collage. Much of Marie’s Smashbooking focus revolves around the theme of Cosmic Peacemaking. Marie believes we are all being called to be a Cosmic Peacemaker both in our personal lives and in the world.
Marie also facilitates other creative exploratory classes upon request. She draws upon her many years of public education art instruction and counseling experience as she provides hands on creative opportunities for learners of all ages. Her students are delighted to discover their own unique talents and abilities as they explore the creative process and find new ways to express themselves for their own enrichment and enjoyment.

Embracing the lessons learned in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur starting her own service based businesses, Leeanne brings a unique and personalized skill set and support to others who are looking for more and won’t settle for just going through the motions. A lifelong love of horses taught her many profound lessons including the importance of authenticity, the power of presence, perseverance and resilience.
During her successful 25-year career in airlines, technology and luxury hospitality, she discovered that many of her colleagues couldn’t answer the question, “What lights you up?”. They didn’t have a passion or interest outside of their career. Through her connection with the horses, Leeanne experienced the positive results of having a balance between your business and personal life. Upon her departure from the corporate world in 2008, she created Unbridle It, LLC partnering with her beloved horses Sassy and Romeo to help individuals reconnect with a lost passion. Now, after the loss of both of her horses, she continues to help individuals reconnect with a passion and find their individual power, but for now, without the horse’s input. Activating her knowledge and experience from corporate marketing and branding to wearing all hats as an entrepreneur starting up a service based business, she also helps small business owners who know they are called to make a difference but may not have the business or marketing experience to realize their dreams.
She is frequently asked to share her personal story about why she feels passion and balance are so important. She feels that you have to walk through life’s challenges and continue to face them with resilience so you can help others do the same.
What’s Your “It”? You’ll Never Know Your Full Potential Until You Unbridle It!
