We are the work of Art.

My Path is informed by drawing Correlation,
of how the interaction with Nature and resulting Sensory Creating,
Nurtures the state of well Being,
Advocating conscious interaction and Compassion.
Nourishing my Equilibrium and Harmony through Trust of Process,
Allowing the fruition of Intuition, the Spontaneity of Serenely Playful Creativity.

Gazes curious Intricacy, Revealing hinges and bridges,
Interconnecting the thought, felt, and enacted, with the realm of the world,
supplying Understanding of our Cycle and how our Presence is informed,
initially Revealing Myself to the Self to find Allusion to Life Itself.

Perceiving Rhythmic Patterns to apprehend underlying Threads expressed in the Individuality of Choice
Urging to let the Cascades of Turbulence, the Rapids, Stream into Layers of realized Experience.
Translucent understanding, settling through Aesthetic.
Bringing Clarity to Realms of Attitude
to fuel a Language of Sensuality,
gathering a Library of Mark Making.

With Depth of Breath, discovering Wonders of Textures, and Structure,
Life and the Life of a Piece,
Observing the Communication a Piece Casts through its Presence,
Purpose, Material, Scale, Multiplicity, Functionality, Concept and Composition.

Saturating in the Enjoyment of Touch, Labor and Process.
Excavating the Meditative Connection to Creating,
Every Encounter, nurturing the Creativity in its Multidimensionality,
grounding the Trust in ones Instinct.
Through Cradling the Serendipitously revealed Treasures
finding a Home for the Soul to Flourish and the Psyche to find Peace.

The Magic of Mark-Making,
has Seeped into the Roots of my Being,
Impacting the Strength of Belief I have in the Laws of Attraction,
in the Power of Manifestation,
in the Potential of the Spirit,
In the Aesthesis of Life.

Allowing the Discovery of the Beauty of Process.,
I have Learnt to Take on Challenges,

I Dare to Dream Big,
Pursue Imagination with Devotion,
Courageously Allowing to Grow,

Treating the World as The Studio.
