First up... These are some of my recent experiments in the wonderful world of Digital Collage...
The second slideshow displays some of my SoulCollage cards which have been made in the traditional cut and paste method onto mat board. I just love making these and the process which accompanies them.
Some favourite words...
"I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that's why I made works of art."
In your light I learn how to love,
In your beauty; how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.
When the soul
wishes to experience something,
she throws an image
of the experience before her
and enters into her own image.
~ Meister Eckart
The soul... never thinks without a picture.
"... The divine has such passionate creativity and instinct for the fully inhabited life. If you allow yourself to be the person that you are, then everything will come into rhythm. If you live the life you love, you will receive shelter and blessings. Sometimes the great famine of blessing in and around us derives from the fact that we are not living the life we love, rather we are living the life that is expected of us. We have fallen out of rhythm with the secret signature and light of our own nature."
~ John O'Donohue, from Anam Cara
WHEN I DARE TO BE powerful—to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
~ Audre Lorde
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that
something else is more important than fear.
~ Ambrose Redmoon
In life, as in dance: Grace glides on blistered feet.
~ Alice Adams
