“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way—things I had no words for.”
Art is a way of exploring that allows for contemplation and internalizing, bridging the inner and outer worlds;
it is a contemplative practice which creates presence
There is a rhythm of my hands working, slowly and continuously, creating focus and comfort. In a world that is saturated with information, rapid sound bites, and stimuli, claiming time for making draws me inward and allows access to tools that cultivate my inner capacities for discernment. The time devoted to making allows for a slower, almost meditative pace, softening the chatter of my mind, and reducing stress. Engaging in creative activities offers a way of connecting to the impulse to make and express that is restorative and renewing. My artistic studio practice is motivated by the desire to create and live a creative life.
