For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw and paint. I have been embracing art after a long absence and understanding the relationship between creativity and the Self. Below you'll see doodles of mine, wall paintings, drawings, and paintings.
Self portrait. Pen on paper. 2017
I had the urge to sketch, so I did; roughly and quickly, I took about 5 minutes to draw one side of my face but I wanted to see what the other side looked like too. In yoga, we often talk about the two side of the body being different to each other for a number of reasons. The face too it seems!
Where is my mind?
Pastels on paper - sometime around 2000
This was painted in school around the year 2000/2001. I find it interesting because, looking back, there were no specific inspiration (although clearly some from 'The Scream') or obvious spiritual awareness. I had, however, recently experienced an event that had altered the direction of my life.

Acrylic on Canvas - 2018
When travelling in India in 2017/2018 and whilst at Amma's Ashram in Kerala, I had the flash images of 4 different paintings in come into my mind. I decided then that I needed to see them in real life. When I left India I returned briefly to Ibiza where I started putting the images from my mind on to canvas. This was number One.

Sun and Fire Mandala
Paint on wall, India, 2017
I designed the Mandala, based on the sun and fire, in a book.Then sketch it on to the wall.
I had never painted a mandala on a wall before...it was fun! And all drawn free-hand (I'm standing on chair here)
