Bio of the Artist

------------------------------------------------

 Designs have been born from my studies of time and space, love of ancient culture, and fascination of fate and destiny.   The desire to learn more has meant the continued development of both myself and my craft, more often than not without formal instruction, but instead, with  illuminations from the subconscious.

 

       

 

A researcher by nature,  the desire of wanting to 'know' has led me to inquire down many paths. Psychiatry & Mental Illness was one of these & I trained to become a psychiatric nurse where I stayed for 15 years. After that followed some wilderness years til I decided to follow my heart, and did a degree in fine art, something I thought was out of my reach

I had always been interested in Tarot, wondered about Astrology, and madly curious that there could be an existence outside of reality as we know it, namely Spirituality. I have always thought about things and daydreamed, from wandering very far in my mind whilst physically staying still.  I later discovered I have parahypnagogia in my day to day life  which has brought me lots of problems but enlightenments as well. Most practically of all, I saw images of designs and solutions to design dilemmas.

 

Now, with re-directed purpose, my interest is in the map of one's life & the manifestation of it - the study of time & our place in the ebb & flow of the cosmos.  

Life feels much better when we swim with the tide rather than against it.
