Nature has always played a vital role in creative expression. Whether this is realized on a conscious level or remains unidentified because it sits in our subconscious, nature influences how we interpret the world around us. It’s one of the few things that can truly tap into all of our senses at once.
In turn, the art we create from nature’s immense inspiration carves us on a personal level and sharpens our cultural identity. Its power and beauty can forever ingrain us.
Nature can help us to:
- Ground us
- Renew our energy
- Cultivate clarity in mind and soul
- Awaken & Enliven
- Remind us of what is important in our lives
Often, depending on where we sit on our ‘life scale’, we’re not able to truly ‘see’ our surroundings. Through art, I try to call attention to what life often doesn’t OR rather what we’re not registering at any given time throughout our journey. Nature inspires me, human nature captivates me. Through painting, I attempt to capture the true essence of anything that stirs the soul.
