Q. When & how did you get started creating this kind of work.
I began the journey of songwriting at the age of 16 . I had started taking lessons in Classical & opera singing while also diving into the world of theatre and dance. Music has always been a way of expressing my emotions and so soon after i started writing melodys and lyrics started pouring out of me . In which began a total healing process for me , giving me a deeper understanding of the power of music to unearth emotions that are lying deep below the surface of our awareness.
Q. What is your creative process- getting ideas, when do you work, tell us about your medium, process (oils, acrylic, stone, sound etc)?
Its an interesting one as its constantly changing. Inspiration comes from everywhere I go and my life experiences , which causes me to look at many perspectives at once. From that point, sometimes lyrics come first or other times ive had melodys float into my awareness at both prefect and inconvenient times. However ive learnt that you must take action in the present moment to capture them. With that I grab my guitar and begin recording all sorts. This can take either a short few mins or hours/days, no two songs are written the same way.
Q. Do or how do your spiritual beliefs inform your work?
I believe we come here to create and that we are a vessel in which ideas flow through from god. Its our responsibility to get out of our own way and ego to allow divine ideas to be birthed through us, into a physical reality, which comes in many forms. With those points of view i see everything i do in life as an opportunity for growth and learning . I have learnt the vitality of living a life of gratitude as that is true abundance and fulfillment comes from appreciation, so there are no mistakes in life only lessons.
Q. Any other observations on living a creative life?
Its not all a bed of roses and its not suppossed to be, you have to learn to go with the eb and flow of creative energy. Its raw authentic ,outside of your comfort zone, constantly upskilling , networking and comes with frequently getting you to observe ways of doing things in new ways that challenge your habbits/routine.
