Discovering the art of living through creation
“Nature is an enormous complex co-operation in which we humans are just a tiny part. The connection between all organisms and cycles that nature provides, makes sure that everything can arise and exist. Everything is connected, the one cannot exist without the other.
I approach my art practice and my work in the exact same way; every detail is equally important; just like nature’s cycle.
Mother nature is as honest as can be, she can be brutal, painful, and chaotic, at the same time she is soft, loving and incredibly beautiful.
I want to create a gentle and loving setting to make an open and honest connection possible, where we can be our pure and unpolished selves, a space where we can drop our judgement and find the space to ground, just like mother earth.
This gentle space can be anything, a painting, a photo, a video, a conversation, a poem, or an activity.
The shape is fluid, the intention is love.
Judgement is the death of creativity, the death of freedom“
