Happy Women’s International Day!

Happy Women’s International Day!

A collection of illustrated diverse portraits of women

 

You may have noticed my muse is feminine and is powerful! Each character, artwork and illustration that I create following my muse contains the energy and spirit of many of the awesome women I hold as friends, clients, or have made a connection with in some way. Each is more powerful than they know, is more inspiring than they know, more beautiful than they know, and each fuels me in some way. 

My inspiration is endless as this muse provides me with nothing but inspiration, love, strength and creativity. I easily can draw or paint feminine portraits. My inspiration coming from the spirit and strength of the amazing ones I have surrounding me. I feel grateful for this seemly never ending flow. 

 

I hold this energy in high esteem and to be frank, I feel it is what is going to save this world. We hold a lot of power my lovelies, we can change this world! So with determination and heart, I vow to continue to #BreakTheBias!

What do you think about creativity? How are you creative?

I believe and know creativity is in us all. We all have it as children and we all have it as adults. The word can be concerning however creativity has many facets and forms to explore. There is something for everyone especially if we apply an arts lens. 

Creativity is expression and imagination. It is also problem solving and communication. So you are already creative in some way, likely many ways, Think of Home then of Work. I bet something came up for you. My husband is an engineer, he applies creativity often in his work. As a mom, when my girls were little, I made fun lunches; sandwiches & snacks in shapes to entice my littles to eat their school snacks. And yes, for sure was sending a message to them. 

For me, creativity as an art practice, is one of self-expression, of storytelling, and of connection to myself. And yes, I am a professional artist so there is practicing my craft in there. However, I save some of my creative energy and inspiration just for me.

I feel creativity is a soul-nourishing, soul energizing and a soul fulfilling activity. It can be way to reconnect with your inner self and inner world. It can be a powerful healing tool, a self-care tool, and a mindful practice.  And freedom if you get into the beautiful state called the zone. 

Bonus! It’s also a type of rest! Check out this article: https://ideas.ted.com/the-7-types-of-rest-that-every-person-needs scroll down for the TedTalk video if preferred.

So often lately, I can go into my creative time fatigued and go out rejuvenated. Give it a try! Let me know what your experience is.
