Drawing inspiration from the natural world around me, I use collage, painting and drawing to explore movement colour and shapes, creating visual narratives for viewers to journey through. My process is intuitive and based on my own embodiment and presence. I allow the materials to dictate the flow of the work, combining paper, paint and oil pastels to achieve Creative Surrender.
Creative Surrender is a state of being present with the creative process, and is the moment of letting go while making art, when a deep listening to creative intuition occurs. It’s about giving space and allowing the piece of art to unfurl, emerge and breathe as any living organism would.
The work of Lindy Solomon has been central to the development of my own work. In her work I discovered process, heart centred art and gained permission to express myself freely.
