I am a multi-disciplinary artist inspired by everyday magic,
the majesty of nature and the complexities of being human.
I use visual arts, dance and poetry to reflect on life, death, beauty and the things that shape us.
For me creative exploration is a conversation between self and environment.
It in an ongoing inquiry into the mysteries of life inviting me into a process of discovery.
Stories, characters and landscapes emerge as i work with my various creative mediums.
Vision, thought and movement merge and inform each other
in a fascinating, daily unravelling
It is from that place of wonder that I discover how to reflect (on) the world
and what I have to share becomes clear.
Movement speaks all angles, threads meaning through the transition between destinations,
This whole person is moving
She is telling you who she is,
how she sees the world.
in how music informs muscle
Exploring the edges,
where her and the world touch.
She can make shapes she’s never made before,
other days she repeats and repeats
the steps that are hard
until her body can’t forget
and her mind is freed
Dance is my lifelong practice. From ballet and movement class at age 4, circus arts and gymnastics at 7, to jazz and contemporary at 10.
Dancing at festivals through my twenties and into my 30s made me itch for more focused training again.
I found bellydance in my 30s and was so lucky to have an amazing local teacher. It challenged and delighted me. A few years ago I made a decision to practice on my own more often and make it something I do at least 4 times a week. When I practice everyday I am a happier more balanced person, a better artist and partner, mother and land-steward. - movement is medicine.
