I’m an Artist…are you?
I believe that humans are innately creative.
That we are artists.
As a practice, intuitive Flow Art can support, nourish, and cultivate wellbeing.
I am deeply curious about intuition, creativity, and the place where they meet in my art, and in the art of fellow creatives. The creativity I call ‘intuitive flow art’ does not begin with a set plan or design, it simply arrives. A phenomenon well known (and felt) by artists who speak about flow states in their work. For me, tuning into the creative embodied experience of ‘being’ with shape, colour, texture, light, and pattern, supports all parts of my life.
The difficulty for many of us, is making the time and space, to simply listen.
As my artwork unfolds, I’m learning to develop ways to share what I do. There’s a lot to learn, not least, tech curves, and cultivating the patience to take the slow path. I continue to be reminded that slow is ok! Really ok!!! That circling back is ok too!
When I can listen, and be guided by what feels intuitively right…beautiful and suprising things happen.

Seeing & being seen
Little by little my flow Art is making its way into the world. It’s a lovely surprise when someone asks to buy, or use, pieces of my art. As time unfolds, I will share more.
Getting more comfortable with ‘I don’t know’?
As a practice, intuitive flow art helps me to become more comfortable with the experience of ‘not knowing’. Not needing to know what next. Being with ‘what now’ as fully as possible. Allowing, and accepting, what flows through my experience…just as it is. Trusting that the experience of becoming, is an integral part of being, and not something separate.
It’s not always comfortable for my mind. But, it feels right. And so, I’m curiously stepping forward, moment by moment…into the unknown what next of intuitive flow.
