"Seed The Day"
My daily meditation and call to self expression.
There is and forever shall be a loving, intuitive and creative Muse Within Me. I am honored to share "Gaia" with my artpage visitors.
As a mixed media artist and photographer I enjoy the intuitive process of weaving meaningful motifs and found objects, enabling myriad narratives to surface unexpectedly within my artwork.
My background includes a Bachelor of Education degree, a Masters degree in Marriage and Family therapy and a certificate in Arts and Healthcare. Only recently have I recognized my deep connection to the creative muse within and rejoice in the endless bounty of artistic media and the unique outcomes which materialize within each pice of my artwork.
Textures resulting from many applications of paint,paper and found objects, are integral to the completion of my work. There are often surprising elements of design within each piece which shall never be duplicated in subsequent pieces. Each step in my process of creating a new piece of artwork allows for the natural dispersion of color and the outcome is an exciting and unique convergence of mixed media .
I believe strongly in the power of art-making and all arts experiences to relieve the emotional and physical pain associated with mental and/or physical illnesses. The arts, both visual and expressive have proven, throughout history to promote wellness and self fulfillment. Regardless of ones role in artmaking, as either spectator or creator, the arts are a magical inspiration and the most natural of healing modalities. Expressiving myself intuitively and without restraint or self judgement is the most natural and self fulfilling experience I have known.
We played and expressed ourselves as children, naturally, curiously and joyfully. We were free from self judgement and expressed pride in our accomplishments. It's time to PLAY once again and share in the fun and sponteneity of enjoying the healing gifts of art!
