I have found me...at 51

I have found me...at 51.  At least I think I have.

I am an intuitive artist, and I am learning to apply this philosophy to my life as well.  I have come to understand that my intuition is far more important that what I planned in life and I am going for it.

I have come to love and appreciate the process of creating art using my inner awareness - my heart centered awareness - to transpose my thoughts onto my canvas. I do not rely on head based questions when I am working as I add texture and colour. I have the luxury of not being trained professionally, which I believe has allowed me to experiment with a childlike freedom.

It is a way of creating that is about connecting to my emotions and responding to what feels right. I appreciate the colours and let my paintbrush flow where it needs to go. Don't you think one of the most appealing attributes of a child is their willingness to be open to anything? As we grow we slowly dim this switch, and our imagination and childlike wonder gradually diminishes.

I am committed to finding my innocent wonder in everyday - in my art and in my life. I am learning to LIVE interpretively like I did when I was a child. This means that I stay out of my head and appreciate everyday for what it is.

So who am I?  I am a 51 year old "new" artist with a personal goal to lean into my childlike wonder and appreciate every moment for what it is.  I have had a family, a full career, a failed marriage, a new marriage sprinkled with sadness and happiness along the way.  The one thing that keeps me grounded today is that I approach life with my heart - not my head.  I am an interpretive artist.
