Creating Life Art: Speaking, Teaching, Coaching

 

In addition to producing original one-of-a-kind art, I also work with others to help them start or continue a journey of artistic expression.

 

In my teachings, Creating Life Art, I assist you in discovering the unique and integral components in your life in order to cultivate passion in an artistic practice that enriches your journey as I provide structure and example. 
Your story is unique. You are an artist.

 

Your perspective of how you see the world – your loves, influences and pathways – create the foundation of your practice

 

Creating Life Art is a guide and philosophy for everyone. I offer various levels of facilitation as well as provide professional art packaging and presentation experience. 

 

As we find your unique artistic expression and organize it by documenting your journey into a body of work, this final project can be applied again and again for personal and professional purposes. 

 

My process and structure was applied to a collaborative exhibit I produced at the Dufferin County Museum & Archives called "The Log Book: Carving an Artist" from September – November in 2013. The exhibit received an Exhibition Assistance Grant from the Ontario Arts Council.

 

Today, I am excited to share these artistic passions and practices in Creating Life Art: State-Your-Art with Self-love and Purpose teachings.

 

By creating we discover a space to experience and cultivate the freeing and uplifting voice within ourselves. Creating Life Art is how we live, what we live and why. Creating is life.

METHOD

 

Creating Life Art identifies and organizes an artist’s creative practice with five interweaving and fundamental themes:

1.   Who I Am

2.   Why I Create

3.   Where I Find Inspiration

4.   How I Create

5.   Where I Am Going

 

Using these five fundamental themes, I ask a series of questions that accompany exercises to prompt creative expression.  These questions help to organize, develop and guide the personal voice and cultivate the artist's practice.
