Artist & Facilitator | London
Making art is an important and powerful process which I have journeyed with through great transformations in my life. Sometimes a vehicle for meditation and others a platform for connection. All of the benefits that come from this act and that of freedom of expression, I believe everybody should have access to.
Mark making opens the window to our inner worlds. Most of us have been the victims of a lifetime of creative repression and this act of sharing and exploring is often quite challenging. I take great inspiration in life and in my work from meeting this challenge and even more so from helping others to meet it themselves. I have experienced the wealth of benefits and joy that creativity can bring and I believe they are truly available to all of us if we can learn to embrace them.
We all have an imagination and we can all be creative, this is a fact and I want to share it.
