I was cruising along, 20 years into a successful and fulfilling holistic medical career when a mid-life epiphany sparked a radical change in direction back into the arts. Once my medical practice sold, I went on a creative sabbatical and happily explored all my interests - fine art, writing, dance theater, filmmaking. Since then, it’s been a process of soul retrieval.
I draw my inspirations from deep states of mystic attunement. It’s my way of communicating the profound beauty and inner essence of life. I’m very eclectic and work in a variety of mediums, from writing to fine art, from interactive installations to immersive theater and film.
My visual aesthetic focuses on sensual organic imagery, drawing from nature at both the microcosmic and macrocosmic levels. I work in mixed media, blending together found objects, luxe materials and raw elements from nature.
Whether an interactive immersive installation or a personal sculpture commission, I’m focused on creating a luminous magical realm to inspire, activate and awaken. I’m fascinated with the potentials of using extended reality technology (like virtual reality, augmented reality and holograms) and 360º dome theaters in my art practice as a vehicle to expand consciousness, inviting the viewer/participant onto a journey of discovery and awareness.
Most of my work is by commission, although you may also purchase limited edition museum grade mounted prints. For inquiries, shoot an email to
Mikhaila Stettler is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and producer. She’s reinvented herself multiple times over, each time a jump into the unknown in answer to a soul call: from dancer/choreographer to holistic doctor with a series of clinics to a media producer to artist/writer.
Eclectic and multi-talented, Mikhaila’s creative process draws on multiple strands, incorporating her experience as a doctor, intuitive, creative mentor and meditation coach. The integration of these gifts with her creative abilities enable her to translate inner realms into materialized form.
Her creative journey began in the performing arts as a dance/choreography major at New York University. After an injury veered her off that path, she found her way into medicine and was recognized as a medical prodigy, graduating with highest honors (Summa Cum Laude and first in her class).
Mikhaila’s unique intuitive and healing gifts were honed during 20+ years in the trenches of medical practice (founding 6 holistic medical clinics and wellness centers). She’s been proven dozens of times as an accurate medical intuitive. Mikhaila attributes much of her 90% clinical success rate to her psychic ability to see and activate her patients’ blueprint for optimal health and wellness.
Medicine was rewarding but that inner voice grew louder and louder, “Hey, remember you’re an artist? When are you going to take your creative gifts seriously?” A mid-life epiphany led to a radical leap back into the creative life, selling her thriving medical practice and taking a creative sabbatical.
Since then, Mikhaila has created art in a variety of mediums including fine art, writing for immersive theater and film, choreographing dance theater, and is a published author of essays, poetry and one erotic romance novel. She has developed a completely new art form that transcends categorization, the Soul Sculptures, interactive fine art sculptures that concentrate and distill a specific spiritual energy or theme into a museum quality work of art.
