We see all the artwork that others are creating and it can really disillusion us. Yet everybody’s creativity is just as valid as the next persons. To find your style, to find your energy, to respect that coming through yourself, coming from that space deep within - that is your unique, beautiful being, and to allow her to grow and bloom and to give her the respect and energy to find that space to be creative is something I really want to share.
I am going to hold space for you to give yourself what you need.
It is very easy to get drawn outwards, to see new things all the time that we want to sign up to or that we want to do, a course that offers us connection to a hundred different artists, and yet for me it is about going within, listening to your inner artist, seeing what she has to say, and serving her with the time and energy that you have to allow her to bloom and blossom.
There are tutor-led tasks, I’m going to show you by video who I am, what I’ve done, how I think when I’m creating, how I think when I am viewing the world, what I see, and how I curate that. It’s about being at one with nature, but also about being in tune with you - getting to a place where you can express who you are as a creative.
