Exploring the mind through art

How can art support discovering the aware, spacious, joyous, compassionate essence
at the heart
of all our suffering?

For over 25 years, I have been investigating ways of freely combining drawing, painting, photography, monoprint, video, image and text, collage, asemic writing and artist’s book making as supports for awareness meditation, contemplation and compassionate action as understood in the Buddhist Mahamudra and Dzogchen traditions.

I have learned a huge amount and continue to be amazed by how meditation, contemplation, everyday life and creativity seem to intimately support each other. My interest is as much in the process of inquiry through making, meditating, contemplating, reflecting and documenting as in the products at the end.

 

I also aim to help others free their creativity and discover who they really are. As a qualified, experienced art teacher and mindful creativity coach I offer one-to-one, confidential, personalised art tuition, mindful creativity coaching sessions and creative art retreats online and from my art studio in rural Suffolk UK.

I give talks on creativity as a support for meditation, mindfulness and compassion. If you have any queries please feel free to contact me on 01379 897393 or by email.
