how I arrived at creating art
I have always been attracted to painting and have dabbled with colour a few times at certain points in my life. A major turning point came for me at a time when my conditional yes in life was breaking down. I went out and bought a large canvas, knowing I needed to paint the 'Divine Feminine'. A seed that had actually been there in me for a number of years. So I set up the canvas in my little office space with the intention of giving myself the time and space to explore painting, creating art.
This blank canvas felt so full of potentiality. I knew there would be a window of time for deeper reflection when I got back from a retreat I was running for woman to the Black Madonna of Montserrat in Spain. It was the perfect opportunity for me to explore the depths inside and to work in a creative space that I felt would support me and the integration of the retreat. This was in June 2014. I then came across an online art course that was actually happening at that time so I signed up for my first art class since leaving school.
Arriving home I gave myself full permission to paint. There She was. Empty, Open, Faceless, waiting.... and I have not stopped painting since.side
I went through a huge shift in my life, an awakening, around the year 1999. Which led me to train and practice in a range of Holistic Therapies - these included aromatherapy, massage and reflexology. Before this I was a single mum, who had lived and worked in Spain for 5 years and was now living in North Wales. Initially running my own ethnic inspired retail outlets with a love of beauty, inspired by nature, the Welsh land and an earnest desire to create beauty in my own life.
From around 2002 I became closely involved with a Realised Being and International Spiritual Teacher. Initially living in community and organising his global tours and retreats. From 2009 I started to teach the instrument of awakening that came through his realised consciousness. Also working closely with him in the initial development of a Teacher-Training Program as a mentor for the practice. Throughout this time, up until 2014 I was also teaching the practice on His international retreats.
During 2009 my husband and I co-founded a SHE (Spiritual Human Evolution) Centre in Amsterdam with our spiritual teacher. And in 2012 my husband and I opened our own centre in Bristol, UK for conscious growth. I continued to teach and facilitate with the awakening practice and also started to hold and facilitate woman's circles, workshops, tours and retreats.
where I am now
Creating art became a deep tool of empowered response to what is true within me. I was learning how to deeply trust the truth of my Self. Whilst strengthening the ability to respond from the deepest place within me to my experience of life. This allowed me to soften into the unfolding wisdom of the dance of the sacred as it opened, unraveled and illumed my way forward.
Following an impulse to continue to deepen in my new found practice with art - I trained with an artist in the USA as a facilitator of her approach to art. Learning from this work and combining it with my own depth of experience, background, creative inspiration and calling. This has evolved my own intuitive based approach to facilitating and holding space for transformational and sacred art journeys.
These are centred on engaging in the deepest pulse of the creative process. Getting intimate with it. Unveiling it. Letting it guide you, teach you, transform you, shape you and your experience of life. So who you are at core, as essence, can flow your potentials right up to the surface of you. I offer transformational Art Journeys, Sacred Circles & Workshops as space for the heart and mind to meet as an opening into your Sacred Essence. I call this the 'Emerging Woman Arts'
