Welcome

Every heart has a story to tell, but sometimes words just aren’t enough…
The story of my heart centres around the connection to life purpose, the alignment that I finally achieved when Art became my catalyst for change, my tool to explore, and my journey to health and healing.
Every painting you’ll find here, is a step on the continual path of wellbeing – a path that is accesible to us all through many forms of creative self-expression.  My inspiration comes from deep-rooted feelings, inspiring experiences, often influenced by nature and always from fostering a sense of wonder at life.
The connection to self is a journey led by hope, constructed of experiences that can be expressed in many art forms, I hope that you enjoy the interpretations you find here…

About

RebeccaWhen I was a little girl, I was always to be found drawing – I was never short of inspiration! I pursued this passion throughout my schooling but following my studies at college, life took a different turn and my artistic ambitions were left unrealised.

25 years went by…

Throughout my varied career the common theme was feeling driven to out-perform and over-achieve, I was ambitious and never paused to take notice of the ‘square peg in a round hole’ sensation that niggled me. My body sent me a wealth of red flags in the shape of recurring illness, which I also ‘filtered out’. I danced precariously around the edges of burnout for a number of years, medical prescriptions were my constant companion. 

In 2016 I encountered a traumatic and life-changing event, I knew that in order to process this (and finally take control of my life),  I would need to address my wellbeing from a holistic perspective. Following a concentrated period of introspection and personal development, I began to achieve self awareness and the profound revelations I was experiencing surfaced in an overwhelming need to put brush to canvas. When I did, it was as if a light had been switched on at the very core of my being.

I took a leap of faith and began to share my work, I was pouring my heart and soul into every piece, and it was speaking to the hearts of others. I quickly understood that I could feed my own wellbeing and pay it forward. When I created space in my life to honour myself as an artist, the universe responded and I haven’t looked back.

I am now on a mission to share the creative path to improved wellbeing with others.  I am excited to continue this journey and warmly invite you to share this vibrant space!
