Reflections from the Artist

What if your life were a canvas and your experience are the strokes and marks that create the masterpiece of you?

What if every loss becomes a prayer dot, every tear is added as a blessing, every challenge and celebration becomes a layer that informs who you are becoming?

As the creator you get to choose how you capture, arrange each element of your life as well as the form in which it will be expressed. As time goes on you look back and realize that you have an exhibit of beautiful and not so beautiful stories in front of you. They are displayed in the way you move and show up in the world.

What does that look like for you?

Why “Being About It”? I’ll tell you…

My creative journey started out of sheer survival and from a place of creating to live. From creating jewelry out of cardboard and magazine pages to feed my family as a single mother, attending festivals to pay for a dream trip to Ireland, quitting my corporate job because my heart wasn’t in it and it wasn’t what I was about. All I wanted to do was to create, and anyone who is an artist know how challenging it is.

Over the years my Beloved husband listened to me talk about my dreams of being a full time artist and wanting to truly live a creative life and my dreams and ideas about my art business being self-sustaining. Sometimes I would struggle with all that was required of me to pull this big transformation off. I would say to my hubby, “I am not asking for permission, I am asking for support”, his response was always “Don’t talk about it, be about it”!

I took that to heart. It was motivational. It was the truth! Every artist has to BE about it – and by ‘it’ I mean their art, their creativity, their self expression! That is the place where the magic comes from!

Being About It is NOT about exhibiting talent, prestige, training, skill, or experience as an Artist by the collective’s definition.

Being About it is…embracing creativity as a daily spiritual practice and knowing that even when I miss the mark, that too is part of the journey.

Being About It is … learning self-compassion by authoring my own definition for what my art should or shouldn’t be , but what it is.

Being About it is… It is to me about exhibiting my beingness and experiences as context for a body of work that expresses my creative journey, identity, and choice to bare the matter of me through my creative expressions in the context of my life as an organic, textured, imperfect, and evolving human experience, no matter the form that expression takes.

This exhibit is not only a personal challenge to BE ABOUT IT and show up anyway, but is an invitation for others to see art as a living representation of its creator.

My hope is that this exhibit will inspire, impress, and impact others to bring awareness to what they are BE-ing About and how they exhibit what they are being called to cause and create in the world.

What to Expect at the Art Open House Experience

I invite you to join me for an afternoon open house where you can view my Body of Multimedia Creations including paintings, sculptures, jewelry, and much more. This exhibit features over 10 years of creative exploration, artistic self discovery, healing through the process of creating, and showing up in a dedicated way to my art. I hope it moves and inspires you to consider what it is in your own life that you wish to BE about, and fully give yourself over to it.

This event will include:

  • Door Prizes (one door prize at the top of every hour)
  • Ritual: Altar to ground the Gallery as Sacred Space (you will be invited to add your own affirmation or prayer for what you are being about to the altar)
  • Merchandise Table with Handcrafted items for sale.
  • Talks with the artist and Metacognitive activity exploring the inquiry…. What are you being about? What does being about it look like to you?
  • Light refreshments and snacks and wine
