' A simple story about simple art born of the heart'.
I think my art can best be described as 'the art with a heart' because it flows through the core of my heart. After spending many years on an inward spiritual journey of self-discovery where I learned to dive down into the shadows of my past and pulled back layers of suppressed emotions and memories which kept me locked in fear, I was finally able to let go of the inner criticizing and self judging which lead me to the core of my heart. Through this deep heart connection I was able to find a still small voice that I call the child within. This newfound liberation felt much like a caterpillar breaking free from the twisting and turning in a cocoon of darkness. Just as a butterfly is able to see things from a higher perspective, I began to see the world through the innocent eyes of the inner child as well as the wisdom of the adult.
As I continue to travel inward on this spiritual healing journey which is leading me to my soul and my Divine connection I am reminded to see the world through the curiosity and wonderment of the inner child. Each time I return with many treasures as well as pearls of love, peace, and acceptance . One of the most significant gifts has been the reminder to enjoy the powerful transforming essence of play. Through play I am able to open up and allow the creative inspiration to flow through me. I think this famous quote by George Bernard Shaw sums it up, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
Through my spiritual connection within and through the eyes of the inner child I try to open up and allow a healing vibration and essence to flow through my art. I believe through the heart of the child within we are able to see the whole world as One.
I will end with two of my favorite quotes from Pablo Picasso, 'Every child is an artist. 'The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.' and 'It takes a very long time to become young.”
