My Philosophy on Art & Creativity
Creativity is so much more than painting. It is how we think, how we approach a challenge, how we allow spontaneity into our busy lives. The creative process isn’t about technique, it’s about learning to think outside of the box, to express yourself and bring to life something that has never before existed. It's about allowing the energy to flow through you.
When I paint, I ask to be a channel of joy into whatever I’m about to create and I let the process unfold.
This philosophy is the driving force behind the girls group, Spirit Warriors. My vision is to inspire women from around the world to form their own groups to help support, encourage, and uplift young girls through adventure, nature, yogic principles and creativity.
