Reclaiming my artistic direction and desire
Art is powerful because it has the capacity to transcend the limits of our perceived reality, to resonate with the soul of another; causing our constricted, Earth-bound lives to connect, expand, and deepen.
By communing at the soul's frequency, art, like nature, like myth, needs no logical or rational arguments to communicate, challenge, and inspire.
After high school, I decided I wanted to go to art school. I signed up for a tour of the nearest art university and started working on my portfolio. I'm not sure quite what caused the 180° diversion from this aim, but I know the well-intentioned advice (and some careless comments) of family members played a big role. I changed my mind and decided instead, to apply to a philosophy and history undergraduate program.
Fast-forward over 10 years later, and I've completed three university degrees within the realm of social sciences and health. As much as I restlessly chafed against structured, institutional system of a university, I love the academic world. I love learning, researching, analyzing, and writing. I don't regret my academic pursuits. However, I've always felt that I've been neglecting a very important part of myself - the more creative and imaginative side of my personality.
I decided to reclaim my art-centered direction and desire.
At the same time as my creative energies were finding new channels for their re-emergence, I was falling in love with the sky again - my longtime muse. In addition to regular sky-gazing and astronomical research, I launched into intensive astrological study and began offering consultations in 2018. Creating art that reflects the awe-inspiring magic of the sky, is another way for me to express the deep connection to this vast universe that I experience with such wonder.
The mediums I am most drawn to include mixed media art, stained glass and tile mosaics, textile and fibre art, and art using natural or recycled materials.
