Creative inspiration is a direct message from the soul in often symbolic or metaphorical language. For me, the image appears, teaching me the meaning even as I paint it. Creating art gives us all the opportunity to communicate with that deeper part of ourselves where our innate beauty, depth and intuitive wisdom resides. It is the process of allowing the spiritual nature within us to speak through color and form in a way that connects us not only with ourselves, but with the shared experiences of others.
“To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light."
- Carl Jung
