Welcome. I'm Amanda.
I’m on a journey and my work is how I take you with me.
This journey is a coming home... to self. It is a process, one I believe can be facilitated through the creative practices of self expression.
In my life, by allowing my creative self the expression on which she thrives, I have discovered some things about being real.
I like myself more
I like life more.
I found love.
By being me.
Mine is a practice of personal excavation, shared with you, honestly.
I do all this because I'm curious, I'm compelled and I'm in good company. I do this because the work of becoming, is important. It makes for a happier you, your connection to self, your connection to others. I know I’m not alone in my quest to live the story I want to tell.
Although 'Artist' is what I appear to be... my work is about more than that. I originally trained as a counsellor and worked in that role for a few years, but transitioned my practice over to the creative domain having discovered I was better positioned, on the road to recovery. That's the one I'm walking.
I'm a creative explorer and Pilgrim Soul. Creative Process for me is the vehicle in which I explore and tend to my internal landscape. This practice results in postcards from my deepest parts. My practice is not about perfecting the aesthetic, it's about presenting the authentic. It's a way of life.
It is the sacred work of honouring, attending to and supporting of the self. I believe that attending to our relationship to self is how we prepare to best for more fulfilling relationships with others.
I hope to inspire, evoke and encourage you into the Creative Practice of self attendance, connection, expression and care. To promote, model and teach creative practice as a tool of engagement and facilitation. A source comfort and joy. And to deepen understanding, development of and devotion to your own creative process. In support of living with true intention, meaning and value.
Always, Amanda xoxo
