About the Artist, Art and Studio

At the heart of it all, I am just like you. A dreamer, doer and seeker of….

freedom, light and beauty.

I am also an artist that leads a simple, quiet life by the sea that seeks out creative projects that light up my soul.

Being close to nature centers and heals me. It is also my greatest source of inspiration.

I am on a similar journey that brought you here…

seeking daily inspiration and filling my world with art, color and creativity.

Life was not always this sublime and after years of adventure, corporate life in London/Sydney/New York and LOTS of soul searching, a series of serendipitous events helped me….

create this life that I love.

Being close to nature, fresh air and spending time in my art studio is how I choose to spend my days…. with a sense of freedom.

How would you like to feel everyday?

A little about me

I am a British artist, with a passion for color, nature and positive energy. I currently live in Spain overlooking the sea with a view of Gibraltar rock, tiny fishing boats and the Moroccan coastline in the distance. (it is heavenly)

I spend my days creating, running creative workshops and assisting other creative souls with their businesses. I spent 8 years living the USA, just outside of New York City where I found the courage to leave my windowless office corporate job and pursue a life filled with more creativity and freedom. I am so happy to say I am in the sweet spot of life and I want to share as much as possible through the courses and resources I offer.

I studied art and design at school and ceramic design at university. I am also fully trained in the Core Energy Coaching™ process (through iPEC Coaching) and working towards my color therapy qualification. I love to integrate these philosophies into the creative process. Save Save Save

About My Art

My intention is to make art that brings happiness and joy. I am currently focusing on the power of color vibration and the impact it has on our lives. My art making is answering that call – to bring color energy into your home and life to balance, heal and energize.

Color is such a powerful tool and it can give you what you need through art and the creative process. I am also influenced by chakra color energy theories, the creation of mandalas and the vast beauty and infinite inspiration of the natural world.

I am currently back in the studio, embarking on my latest project “100 Days of Painting“.   Save

My Paintings have been published in the New York Times and featured in Inc Magazine. I have featured in many books and also contribute to the beautiful Moyo magazine – the worlds first online Surface pattern Design magazine and write the regular “color stories” column for the publication.

This year, I also co-authored my first book through publisher Walter-Foster called “Mandala for the Inspired Artist.’ Please feel free to browse my Press page to see more.

How I Am Cultivating My Own Creative Side.

I am currently finishing up my Color Therapy Training and writing more about how to invite color into our lives through my project “Create Your Color Story” This is also showing up in my latest paintings.

Hope you will find lots of inspiration on the blog to inspire your own journey and classes to explore color, creativity, energy and living a dream life from the heart. I am also renovating my home & studio in Spain {here is my amazing view below} so look forward to sharing more..

My Creative Journey

I am so happy to share this lovely interview the beautiful Sheri Ponzi did with me as part of her “Conversations with Creative Magic” series.
