What do YOU see here?
I think creativity is the best therapy.
After a period of dealing with a long-term illness, I revisited my love of paint. I love to paint those things we cannot see - feelings, emotions, subconscious thoughts.
To me, if the viewer isn't given a prescribed interpretation, a work can become so much more meaningful and personal to them.
I love not knowing the outcome before I start to paint, and I love saying to viewers, "What can YOU see here?" It starts so many enlightening conversations.
Hello! I create subconscious, automatic abstract pieces of art, expressing specific energies. After I completed my BA(Hons) in Art & Design in the UK, I went on to work in mental health for the last 15 years. Recently I have joined my interest in mental health and the subconscious with my love of art and art as therapy. For example, I realised that my subconscious and automatic art was heavily influenced by whatever music I was listening to at the time. So I decided to deliberately exploit my subconscious and experiment by listening to specific music on repeat from beginning to end of a painting. You can suggest music for me to paint by using the hashtag #paintmysong.
