LISTEN TO THE STORY THAT SHAPED A LIFE'S CALLING

 ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Art to me is first and foremost an excavation of voice that starts with a question. 

 

The canvas is the space within which the conversation takes place. As such, I respect it as sacred territory making space for story.

 

I come to it in the spirit of relationship asking for an exchange to take place, a deep conversation in which all the parts of me connect and collaborate to speak soul.

 

In that respect, my approach is dialogic and intuitive. As I create, I strive to inhabit a space of receptivity and responsiveness.

 

Painting to me is a celebration of life below the surface and a deliberate cultivation of awareness. As such, it is an ever-evolving iterative process, stoking the fire of original expression. One canvas at a time, I seek to walk my own Via Sophia, the path of inquiry and wisdom that leads me closer to myself & my own understanding of consciousness in the now. 

 

I first came to painting shortly after moving to the United States from France, my country of origin. On my self-taught journey as an artist, I discovered Shiloh Sophia McCloud’s work and found a home in her teachings on Intentional Creativity®, the method she developed with her teacher Sue Hoya Sellars. 

 

In this heARTfelt space of co-creation, my hope as an artist is to participate in the great unfolding that we call life, one seed of becoming at a time. I sincerely hope that, as you witness my work, more questions arise so that we may keep interrogating and creating together, supporting each other on our paths as soulful storytellers.

PAINTINGS ARE LIVING SOUL STORIES.

In good Intentional Creativity fashion, each of them is layered with intention, inquiry, prayer, and meditation until its final image and message reveal themselves to me.
