hi thereHow are you doing?
It's a wild, blustery, wet (dreecht) day here in Scotland. The Trees are almost bare once more, the berries and fruits have fallen. The bark is splitting and tearing as new growth forges through for next year.
I am often asked what it is exactly that I do and this question popped up again just yesterday. So I thought I would dig down a little more deeply and find a more succinct way to answer this in case it is of interest to you.
The Essence Of What I Do... What is My Passion... My Gifts... What I share with, or teach, Others?
Ultimately it is deeply connected to becoming the closest one can possibly become to our most Truest, Real Self.
When I offer Intuitive Art to you, I also bring my Lifelong Personal Growth & Learning to offer You.
When you are able to become your Truest Self, I believe we experience a deep joy of being in our own skin. An inner calm. At ease. Comfortable. Warts and all.
You can make "mistakes" with confidence and feel completely OK as you are. You don't need to defend, blame or project. You accept yourself and carry on being You, usually wearing a contented smile.
As we work together, I inspire you to make Intuitive Art and you will probably discover that deep down, under the layers of all your Roles, there is a Unique, Amazing and Creative You hiding, waiting to be discovered.
For years we have been bound by the Myth that we must be either Creative or Analytical. I am both and many I work with find this useful, blended, enriching. I believe we can be one, both or in fact anything we wish!
You may discover you are an artist, a singer, dancer, drummer, writer, gardener... possibly told like me, 'You can't be an Artist, you'll be penniless for life!' Such damaging Attributes wreck our dreams and self esteem.
As Picasso said: "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
Through Intuitive Art and between us, we seek out your Truest Self, forgotten Parts of You, and may find You hiding, lost, alone, wishing, hoping, feeling wobbly, stressed, anxious or low... doing what you weren't actually born to do, but doing it anyway in order to bring about Love or Approval from Others in your life.
Through our non-judgemental work, your truest Self can emerge. Your Needs, Your Wants, Your Dreams, aspects of what makes you You will shine through your Art and once we have discovered You, you can take from this what you Wish and we will celebrate!
One of the very best parts of what I do is offer you the gift to create Art whenever you wish. Whenever you feel in need of answers, whenever you feel down. You can create Art and find You in there, find answers. Stories emerge and Answers are found as we create.
I feel sure your Art will become very important for you. In the process of finding You, you also create beautiful, unique Art!
You will learn how to release your emotions and allow your Art to 'speak' to and for you any time you need.
A loving, gentle space where you can be You, spontaneous, playful, relax and just see what happens!
