How has creativity and painting helped you in your own personal journey?
Wow, that's a great question and a very layered one to answer as well. During the year of my mom passing, a breakup of a long-term relationship, moving into my own home, working full time & all happening within 6 months, Creativity was my Peace.
I found that sometimes I didn't have the words to articulate how I really felt or understand all of the changes happening in and around me.
Being creative in the kitchen and painting was/is my form of expression and meditation for me to really be in a happy place again. Painting takes me to a space where my heart and my soul lead the way. Even after working a long day of cleaning teeth, I had to paint, I wanted to create something.
Painting has really helped me on my personal journey to get into my feelings, to know myself better, to love myself for who I am, to go with the flow, to relax, to trust, to open up in a way I never knew I was capable of.
What is your creative process and how can anyone learn from it?
One of my creative processes is to take photographs of things I love. For me, that's nature. To be in nature it is calming, connecting and brings back perspective of how beautiful our surroundings are.
When in nature it opens all of the senses to recharge the human batteries, to appreciate all of its beauty. Taking photographs is such a great way to study in person the subject at hand, learn composition, study colors in person and then recreate to practice when back in your 'studio'.
P.S. A 'studio' can be a guest bedroom, your bedroom, the dinner table, a small or large desk, a clip board, a backyard on a blanket on the beach. There are no restrictions on that space. If you feel the need to create, trust that and make something. Each mark you make on paper, canvas, computer, etc. is your creation and you will benefit in knowing it's one of a kind. There is only one YOU so only you can make your marks.
What is the best advice for someone that wants to enter their creativity but is afraid to?
Well, if you are excited to do some art, have the feel to create, GO for it!!! You cannot ever get it wrong, you're the only person who can make your masterpiece.
The very act of “Arting”, expressed in any artistic media is a pathway to know yourself better. If afraid and excited to art to me that says.... it’s calling you to trust the flow. Go with it.
What do you wish those purchasing the art see and feel about your work?
I wish for those admiring my art or purchasing it to feel a sense of peace, passion, pause, & know they have an important purpose.
