MEET OUR CHILDREN...40,000 + :)

Here is an assortment of rocks that Liesbet and I have painted over the past few years.  Most were done by either her or myself alone, but some of them are joint efforts!

INTRODUCING 'THE ROCKISTS' Jeff Phillips & Liesbet Verstraeten


Jeff Phillips & Liesbet Verstraeten 

For five years we have been on a unique and wonderful journey, travelling together, creating and honouring life on Mother Earth.  Our visual art, photography, film-making, music and networking combine into a synergetic whole dedicated to carrying the torch of a true spiritual vision based on sharing and love.  We have hitch-hiked extensively around Australia and New Zealand, connecting with the land and the people; our inspiration comes directly from the land, sea and sky; the Earth, moon and sun; our fellow beings both human and non-human, the cosmos, and eternal consciousness.  We are of the P.O.O.H. tribe, the 'people of one heart.'

What we are really about is creativity in harmony with our highest spiritual path.  Our mission as crew members of Mothership Earth is not only to honour the beauty and power of nature, but to create awareness of the ways that humanity is destroying our planet through ways of ‘living’ that are incompatible with life and to re-navigate our overall process towards a more conscious and coherent reality in which lethal contradictions have been resolved, in which mitakuye oyasin, ‘all our relations’ can truly flourish.

Together we’ve painted several thousand rocks and hundreds of paintings and murals, made tens of thousands of photos and four films, play heaps of music and share the fruits of our creativity with friends all over the world.  We have very deep and special connections with indigenous people of land and sea, in particular, the native Americans, the Australian aborigines, and the whales and dolphins.

Jeff is a native of the Carolinas and hitch-hiked over 150,000 miles all over North America before coming ‘down under.’ His back-ground is in interdisciplinary science, mainly physics, zoology, and psychology. He has recorded several cd’s of original music and had articles published in several magazines, part of on-going ‘information activism.’

Liesbet is a native of Belgium and holds a degree in film-making.  She plays native American cedar flute, has a brilliant photographic eye and artistic sensitivity, and is also a specialist in nutritional and culinary creativity.  She is very much a dolphin in the form of a lovely human being.
