My path through creative expansiveness

My path through creative expansiveness....

Growing up as a young girl, I was always encouraged to express myself artistically. It began as scribbling, then to coloring, drawing, molding play dough and using chalk on the front doorsteps.
I learn't very quickly the feeling of fulfillment and bliss through the outlet of creation. Something I could enjoy all on my own. My mind would race with inspiration, I would have pencil in hand placed on paper. The lines would begin and end where I told them to. Any spare moment would be invested on the pages of my artbook. 

I knew I wanted to be an artist when I grew up but was reassured that it wasn't a realistic career path. As my adolescent years progressed, I gradually lost touch with the feeling. Having difficultly understanding what went wrong.

Time passed and as a young adult, it has been a series of trials to see what fascinates me. Leading once again to art and using my hands. I've slowly remembered how important it is to me.

For the last few years, I spent all my spare time painting, making jewelry and vending at multiple markets and festivals. Sharing my passion with others bringing so much fulfillment in hopes to inspire. 

Visionary art is just as valued as technology. It creates culture, community and speaks to our true nature.

It has a way of calming the soul, triggering emotion in people and bringing us all together organically. 

These days, expanding my knowledge through silversmithing and especially Mehndi. I see now in order to grow and expand, you must play. Experiment as you did a child.

"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" -Pablo Picasso

Art is a way of expression and you're always learning.

Our imagination is like a vast ocean that's meant to be discovered
