I’ve spent this morning, around four or five hours, creating art to go with a quote by Rumi :
“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.”
Art is one such voice, and the voice belongs to the artist that creates the art.
My style of art flows from my heart, my soul. I work intuitively, often with very little plan, and I just let it happen as it needs to.
Abstract and stylised are two other features of my art, along with line and pattern. I draw inspiration for these from all kinds of places – nature, architecture, jewellery, pottery to name but a few. Whatever pleases my soul inspires me.
And I recognise that I need to stand by my style, my art-voice as it a true expression of me, of how I absorb influences from around me and then find a way to combine them into a response that is uniquely mine – one rich in detail and colour.
My artistic voice tells you a lot about me, if you but listen to it. It tells a story about me, what fascinates and inspires me, what I’m curious about, what catches my attention, and what makes my heart sing with joy. Creativity gives me a way to share these things with others, with you. It allows me to speak one of my truths, a truth that doesn’t have words.
