Why I paint What I paint
I have been compelled my whole life to draw swirling tendrils. As far back as I can remember, I would draw them over and over again. They show up in every painting I paint.
I’ve had no idea why I had to draw them, I just HAD to! Then recently the “ah ha” moment came. These tendrils are my roots communing with Mother Earth. She has been downloading her wisdom, unconditional love and alchemy to me. Through me via the tendrils from her womb to mine.
These messages are not only for me, but also for my sistersouls here on earth. For the collective.
Messages from the great goddesses. Their archetypes. Wisdom of releasing limiting beliefs, the pain and oppression of us and the previous generations, our default settings. For us to learn the strengths of these goddesses and of the unconditional love and ancient wisdom of Gaia.
These messages come to me as visions when I “tap” into Mother. These visions manifest, marinating over time into paintings.
As well as helping me break the bonds of my own limiting beliefs. Releasing the fear of being seen, of being heard, of not being perfect.
Letting go of procrastination, excuses and complacency. Helping me to stand in my own Devine Feminine Power and Authenticity. Helping me to have the courage to share this alchemy and wisdom with my sisters through my paintings. Passing on what is being passed to me, through me.
Vision. Manifest. Create.
And So It Is!
