Art and Creativity Philosophy

Creativity is in all of us. Creativity is all around us, it is the beauty that makes up the lovely moments in our days. I feel that for me art has been a calling hard to brush aside, it isn’t always easy but it has to be done. It calls to me. A response from within me to the Creator. And so I do the work. Like yoga, making art is a discipline.I try in my way to create my own kind of beauty pulled from what I experience in life.

I paint mostly in acrylics and watercolors, occasionally dabbling or experimenting with other mediums. I love painting flowers and plants because I love colors and textures and the beauty that the natural world has to offer. I want to catch it with my brush so that people see it and gain a new appreciation of the plants and flowers themselves.

                                      Thanks for stopping by I hope you find times of stillness and moments of beauty today.
