What a delight to be interviewed by the talented Jess Phillips. We chatted about NamARTste's emergence and why-oh-why the magical word, CREATIVITY belongs in our lives.
"Our creativity is directly linked to our life force, it is vital for our health and wellbeing to have the opportunity to create- not always for the sake of creating a product but to participate fully in the process of creating. It is through this process that we find an essence of who we are and can allow that to emerge. "
"This process is the overcoming of fear, guilt, shame. It takes tremendous courage and vulnerability to show up and allow ourselves the time and space to create especially in a society that tells us taking time for ourselves is selfish."
"Time allows us to give from a place of abundance. The combination of yoga and art awakens this creative process and becomes the petrie dish in which we are ultimately reflected. The work is to continually observe without judgement to remove the harshest barrier of all. Ourselves."
