Jerry Wennstrom PO 522 Clinton, Whidbey Island, WA 98236 www.handsofalchemy.com In 1979 Jerry Wennstrom was a rising star in the New York art world when he let go of his identity as an artist by intentionally destroying his large body of art and giving away his possessions. With this leap of faith Jerry embarked on a decade of wandering, listening, seeking, and relying on intuition and unconditional trust to guide and provide for him. His book, The Inspired Heart: An Artist’s Journey of Transformation, is a self-portrait of the life of a man guided by a desire to connect to the divine, creative spirit. Jerry is the subject of two Parabola and Sentient Publications documentary videos, In the Hands of Alchemy and Studio Dialogue. The tower that Jerry built on his Whidbey Island property, along with his life's story, are featured in the book, Holy Personal by Laura Chester. Jerry travels nationally teaching, lecturing, and presetting the films. He also writes a monthly column for Inferential Focus, a New York City think tank and consulting firm.
