So, prompt 8 of Flora Bowley's Bloom True Bootcamp "Your Creative Manifesto"
This was incredibly easy to write, especially using Flora's suggested guidance.
Creativity is an undeniable part of who I am, and it feels utterly vital like drawing breath.
I have always been compelled to create since being a young child - even then seeking to use materials around me to try to make sense of myself. This is partly why I create - to discover the self, to delve inside my being, and to find what art means to me.
I also create to discover my own style, to experiment with materials and tools to see where it will take me, and to play, to explore, and to make connections.
I believe that creativity runs through us all, we are all born with the capacity but it needs to be nurtured. As a result I believe that we often need to give ourselves permission to be creative, and to let go of those inhibitions. This is why I endeavour to teach and encourage others to be creative.
When I am being creative I feel free, peaceful, unafraid, joyous and exhilarated.
Creativity is life.
Happy arting everyone xxxx
