If you can move, we can dance
If you can sound, we can sing
If you can think, we can write
If you can touch, we can draw
If you can play, we can perform
If you can imagine, we can act
and transform the world
For me, art making or 'making special' refers to any action that involves
an embodied presence in the here & now
a playful attitude
a let go of my rationale to enter the world of mystery.
By making special we discover ourself, we experience and transform the world and we are transformed!
That is why I am here to advocate for:
- the priceless value of play, imagination, expression,
and creativity in our everyday lives, at ALL ages.
- our right to be seen and recognized with dignity for
who we truly are within all spectrum of our humanity
- our right to pleasure and respect in all aspects of life.
EVERY LIVING BEING HAS THE RIGHT
TO EXPRESS ITS UNIQUENESS FREELY
When I play and/or make art, I can reach my essence and experience my wholeness in the emptiness, in relationship; I can step into the all-time-in-between-space where connection and healing is possible.
My creations have always been hand to hand to my soul search and growth.
They reflect inquires, doubts, dreams and insights.
They reveal struggles, conflicts, surrender and transformation.
Some of my art is 'childlike', some of it for 'grown ups'
some of it is 'homemade', some of it 'professional',
some of it is spontaneous, some of it intentional and rehearsed,
some of it complete, some of it in process.
No matter how I create, I am proud of every attempt to explore
the entire spectrum of our humanness and to communicate
the beauty of our existence and the mystery of life.
