About this Blog
This blog began when I needed a new creative project, and a way to connect to and honour the cycles of nature. I made a small mandala to celebrate the summer solstice in 2009 and decided to carry on making more and share them online, as I have found that the best way to create is to have an audience (real or imaginary).
I am filled with joy at the beauty all around us, both in nature and in the strange ugly things humans have made. I also love creating meaningful, silly, or fantastical rituals – theatre on a different scale, where I am the performer, director and the audience.
Since starting this blog I have started documenting the things I see, as well as the things I make.
In this blog I am also celebrating the messy, imperfect, unfinished, and impermanent. I don’t discriminate between things I make that I think are good, and things that might be ‘bad’. To me, these judgements are misplaced, I see my artwork as creative actions that support my whole self – psyche, body,- to fulfill my needs and desires in the moment. Also, they’re just fun.
About my Performance Work
I see my performance work in a different light – it is more about connecting with other people, being a part of a story that is bigger than me, and sharing something that will change us all (oh yes, and shiny dresses).
Finally I am inspired to be a living artist, where every moment is bordering on the extraordinary, just because I am living it. Where I can practise random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty.
