The freedom to be. The freedom to roam, to explore, to enjoy, is the oxygen of creativity. Physically and mentally, this need is the dream dimension where newness is born. Like the birth place of the stars, we all need to nurture our nebula. Our intersellar cloud of ideas.
Every once in awhile, life offers a profound link to something special. I recently came across a unique and beautiful person, Katherine Dunne. She wrote a small treasure of a book, Misfits of Love,
about her brood of animals, rescued from different places, and retired to her sanctuary, Apifera Farm. The book is filled with these lovable characters who finally have a safe place to roam, to explore, to be nutured and to nuture in return. Katherine is one of those miracles that comes along in life and helps reset our reality as to what really matters; that success and richness have nothing to do with status or money, they have to do with empathy, love and kindness.To learn more about Katherine's work and her brood of misfits please follow this link and experience richness which will fill your heart with love, compassion and joy; http://www.apiferafarm.blogspot.com/
I believe creating art connects us to the on going evolution of the Universe and that, we are all creative, we just choose to show it in different ways.
When I am making art, the barriers of time and space dissolve and I enter a quiet sanctuary.
As part of my creative process, I make marks, buried deep into the archeology of the painting, sometimes these are uncovered towards the end, most times they remain hidden under a multitude of layers, yet their energy silently speaks. I leave the painting to tell the story and the viewer to be the interpreter.
