I have only been painting for a couple of years ( I’ll tell you the story of how and why I started another time) and it’s taken me a long time to work out what the point is of me painting, especially abstracts. I have definitely had the imposter syndrome pervade my thoughts. What is the point of me sharing my work, why do I believe in it so much.
Understanding my life values has been imperative in helping this sink in.
I place massive value on creativity - not just in art, but in life. How can I be more creative, how can I think creatively, how can I solve problems? (I love lateral thinking puzzles) .
I also think this is why I am so disconcerted with the education system. (also, more on that later). Not only how it is so restrictive, narrow minded and stressing our children, but also what are our children NOT EXPERIENCING by being churned through school. They have SO MUCH POTENTIAL. I get really excited when I hear about a school that thinks outside the box and goes down the more “alternative” route. (they shouldn’t be considered alternative more like “more humane”).
I would also like to make a difference in peoples lives and the world we live in. (oh wow, now i’m crying because that hit a nerve).
How do I think I can make a difference?
Create art - all types of art. Beautiful art, ugly art, serious art, fun art.
Raise awareness around how we raise our children and the education system.
Raise awareness around beliefs and conditioning and guiding you to be empowered to overcome your past to create a better life for yourself and your family.
How can I do that?
Firstly I need to continue on my own path of healing and empowerment. The more I develop as a person the more I learn. The more I get back into my body the more intuitive I become. The closer I get to being my authentic self, the more I can impact others to do the same.
I have also worked out that the more I talk about all this the better I will get about talking about all of this. I don’t need to have everything figured out to start.
And I will say, that is the message in painting - you don’t need to have it figured out. Just start.
I love guiding people on a journey of self discovery and empowerment. If you are ready to go on this journey to living an authentic fulfilling life CLICK HERE to
