When 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!
