The Unconscious Mind
I have always admired artists, who are able to create without a visual cue or reference. Artists who tap into something greater than themselves. This series of sketches are inspired by such artists. Every morning, I sketch for about 30-45 mins without any preconceived ideas or visual goal in mind. Some of the larger sketches take more time.
This creative process taps into my unconscious mind and allows me to achieve a meditative flow state. While each sketch ranges in style and technique, all share a common thread of expressed emotion. The intention of my art is to unlock others, to make it accessible and to serve as a catalyst for change. I want people to connect with the process as much as the outcome, to create without over-thinking or analyzing, to create without fear, to create without expectations and to create because it’s fun. It’s about being in a safe place to quiet the mind and spark the child-like curiosity we sometimes lose in our busy lives. Ultimately, I hope my art inspires and brings light to the world. We all need a little more of this in our lives.
This journey has been a cathartic one. I look forward to seeing what unfolds in the process.
