Follow your Intuition
Mixed media on canvas
My paintings are often created in layers, and this artwork started off straight away with a seed-like structure, which can now be seen as a 'source of light' in the upper half of the painting, and the roots that grow into the bottom of the painting. For me listening to my intuition means to follow my inclinations to spend time in the ocean, forests, and mountains. It means listening to my heart, following my bliss, and rooting deeper into who I am - shedding the preconceptions, identities and stereotypes that I've been abiding by. This rooting or grounding into who I am is then an expression of what I perceive as reality. Reality for me is not merely what we see, but it's what we feel, sense, think, perceive, experience and it all forms part of a world of absolute MAGIC and beauty, even though it can so often feel or look like the opposite is true.
