She Started Yoni Paintings
Cassie Blue is a massage therapist. She is 30 years old and hails from Michigan. She sees her menstrual period as a blessing, and she started creating period art which is also known as ‘Yoni Paintings'.
The Reason Why She Has Named This Art
She revealed that she had labelled this art as Yoni Paintings as the word ‘Yoni' means the ancient Indian term for vagina. She has been using the blood to paint on canvases, that she hangs up on her bathroom wall. She started this art in August 2017.
The Whole Idea Of Using Menstrual Blood
Her periods were quite uncomfortable, and this is when she decided that this will be a perfect way to turn an inconvenience, a pain into a creative outlet. This was when she decided to use her menstrual blood as paint.
She Claims She Uses Less Than An Ounce
During her menstruation cycle, she uses a reusable menstrual cup and pours the contents into a glass jar. She uses the blood to paint only when she is ready. She also claims that she does not even need the whole blood; it is less than an ounce that she needs and the rest of the menstrual blood is used to water her plants.
Each Painting Has A Different Shade
Cassie also explains that each painting of her looks like a different shade from another. Some of her paintings get darker, while a few get browner, and there are those that stay almost the same. She further added that with her new art love she had received an overwhelming amount of support from not only her friends but also from strangers.
She Wishes To Do More
Cassie has over 13 paintings that she has hung in her bathroom and claims that she would love to do more of these.
