Abstract Creativity and spirituality are presented as interwoven processes. Creativity is examined in the light of suspicion, celebration, and its retrieval in Christianity as a sacred energy having its origin in the Divine. Perspectives on God and creativity and human creativity connect artistic expression with the unleashing of the power of God in human life. In South Africa, artistic creativity is examined as a process that opens up spiritual spaces for women, enabling them to go beyond the restrictions and silencing of the self internalised by marginalisation of women in both the society and the Christian tradition. Based on the experiences of selected women artists in South Africa, with focus on the late Gabisile Nkosi, the significance of creativity to spirituality, and spirituality to creativity are interpreted in terms of the process of becoming. This has implications for women’s lives, their personal and spiritual growth, as well as societal growth and transformation.
