My perspective is of both, the artist and the muse. Art and dance alchemize my heart and body; like a map and tool for harmonizing all of the ups and downs in my emotional world. It takes me deeper into my multi-colored personality, guiding me to reveal the scary-turned-sensational conversation between my wild and my grace. I gently introduce one aspect of me into another, to hold hands, like two colors blending on the canvas, a duality within me dances and unifies as the painting emerges. When I’m giddy about an idea, a tingling feeling will send a chill through my spine, through my hand and brush onto the canvas… I astonish myself to tears sometimes. I can hardly believe these incredible visions coming through me. How could I have ever doubted that I am special and worthy of love and safety? *tears* I’m still a small child remembering that it’s okay to be and feel as myself, that I’m special and powerful as I Am. We ALL Are. I trust my heARTwork serves as a strong reminder of that, for anyone else that’s ever in question. Let us all create from Love.
