Bringing together the creative and psychological
I believe that some things cannot be spoken, only felt and perhaps alluded to through the arts. I completed Masters in Psychology 20 years ago. The experience led to my pursuing my interest to explore the transpersonal, the unseen and the unconscious. I have explored these themes in undertaking training in Jungian and Transpersonal psychology and in Buddhism, meditation and mindfulness practices.
It is both an honour and a challenge to be in the unique position to bear witness to the way we seek to find meaning in our lives. The artwork I make attempts to source and explore my understanding of these themes in visual form. My interest in the human search for fulfilment and the voice of the heart or spirit is the central theme in both my psychological and art practice.
