Art in itself communicates….. it is a medium in which we can use to move through life….
As with Music, art moves through me as an expression of deeper forces. I paint, draw, sculpt, photograph, sew, craft, design and bring into the world elements of who I am and reflect the influences surrounding me.
I experience Art as a therapeutic experience, as a form of play as well as a conduit for passing on knowledge and wisdom.I find that it stirs and evokes the creator and the witness… I recognise that Art never lays dormant once complete, through the viewers perception, the imagination remains alive and in turn; so does the expression…
Over the years of trying out new ways of creating, I have discovered that we can make our life a form of art, by utilising what it is we have to work with.I like to Imagine each emotion, each experience we have ever had as a colour of which we can draw from, and in turn reveal new things to ourselves. Perhaps through creative expression, there is the potential to redesign ourselves in the process.
