Creativity is a form of communication from the soul. It cannot be conjured, tangibly possessed or limited to a single form. We are creativity, and we recreate it every day in new and magnificent ways.
“Creativity takes courage.”—Henry Matisse
Holding your creativity inside, never letting it out, must be terribly confusing and painful for your heart, for your mind. But it can also be scary to let it reveal its true form, to set it free, because it is something that reveals the inner parts of us that cannot be caressed when we’re low and need comfort. Nor can it be stolen, yet we may always fear losing it.
Current projects available to view in my portfolio pages include working on illustrations for a Coffee Trail Book, writings and illustrations for the Fierce Mind memoirs, photography to accompany adventures on the trails and in the cities, creating food portraits for recipes, and observations of life.Allowing myself to reveal my creative nature took time, it was abandoned for many years after I feared that I wasn’t good enough to be considered creative, or an artist. It took a trauma to wake it up again, and thank goodness for life’s experiences.
That trauma set me on a path to here, at the time it was the end of one world, and yet the start of a new one.
Here I am nurturing different angles of creative form, experimenting with techniques, allowing my style to weave into my daily life. It is only recently that I’ve merged my illustration & wooden craft business into freelance design & photography with the purpose of focusing on the outdoors: creative mindful adventures, bringing serenity to my heart, promoting a healthy body, and giving my mind some space to roam free.
To be able to create is spiritual, it’s also how we can heal.
