Every now and then, I get this overwhelming feeling of inspiration…it’s the type of restlessness that accompanies new and exciting ideas…this is the restlessness that stems from the urge to create. Over the past few nights I’ve tossed and turned, inspired by ideas I’ve been discussing with my dear sister…one of the most inspiring people I know. She sees me in a way that I’m not sure many others can see. She sees the artistry that is woven into my soul, she sees how passionate I am about creating, and she shares this with me through our wild and exciting discussions. Together we make beautiful plans based on our love and appreciation of nature. This has awoken something in me and now I just cannot stop creating.
Clay is my medium of choice. I love it for its obvious connection to nature, its malleability, and it’s durability (and, ironically, it’s fragility at the same time). Over the past few months, I’ve been working on developing my vision for my art and it always connects to nature. With the idea of helping others connect to nature while sharing my artistic vision, I’ve started to regularly create clay pieces. I’ve got some exciting projects in mind that bring a smile to my face whenever I envision them.
With my focus on art and nature, I’ve started to feel more in my own skin than I have in a long time. I’ve started to embrace myself and the things I feel passionate about. Once of which, is growing and eating whole foods that come from plants. When I made these realizations I couldn’t stop thinking about how funny it is that, after all these years, after so many changes, I’ve finally made my way back to me. This is who I am, who I’ve been for so many years and yet, who I lost for a bit. It’s like I’ve found an old friend and I can’t wait to catch up ❤
