“So much of our life is lived in a fog of automatic, habitual behaviour. We spend so much time on the hunt, but nothing ever quite does it for us. And we get so wrapped up in the hunt that it kind of makes us miserable” — Dan Harris
I have been exploring creativity and the way it transforms the human spirit in a positive and uplifting way for nearly 30 years and over that time, for me, it has evolved and expanded in a beautiful way. Creativity is simply a 'tool' in which to connect and by allowing ourselves the internal pilgrimage we allow the transformative experience to happen. I believe everyone has access to it and everyone is creative.
For me, it is all about 'space' a continuous area or expanse which is free, available, or unoccupied inwardly and outwardly and trying to somehow express that using paint.
"We are already one," as Thomas Merton once wrote, "But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity... What we have to be is what we are." Art can help us do that.
