Shiloh Sophia

MUSEA Curator and Co-Founder of Intentional Creativity

For 30 years, Curate Shiloh Sophia McCloud has been devoted to nurturing the emergence of a conscious community through self-expression. She has published eight books, taught her curriculum at three universities, spoken at the United Nations for eight years, financed over seven galleries centering on women’s art, and provided millions of dollars of jobs for women around the world in the arts. While McCloud is an artist, storyteller, and teacher, she is also a futurist who has founded one of the world’s largest global art movements, serving tens of thousands of students per month called Musea Center for Intentional Creativity®. She teaches a ‘path of practice’ in the arts, and offers ceremonies throughout the wheel of the year for people to repair their relationship with creativity, the earth, and themselves. McCloud is a prolific painter with many sold-out shows. She still paints weekly for both her own exploration and on camera for her global audience.

She lives in Sonoma, California with her husband Jonathan, and their two kitties Frida and Diego. The couple has a gallery on the Sonoma Plaza, Musette Atelier, as well as a campus featuring a classroom, film studio, kitchens, vineyard, and art studios. Based on ten years of research in art, education, and leadership, the McClouds opened a private university featuring an independent degree in the field of Intentional Creativity called a Curate. There are over 800 graduates from their certification courses, and the graduates called the Guild, form the staff for Musea Center: Museum, University, Sanctuary, Ecosystem, and Atelier. At Musea Center, love is at the Center!
