Delighted to be featured in Spirit and Destiny magazine, July 2019
I am over the moon to be featured in a two page article about my intuitive creativity this month in the beautiful ‘Spirit and Destiny’ magazine July 2019. It is the perfect edition for me as its theme is ‘Free your creativity’.
The article is based around my rare psychic gift of Psychometry and how it inspires my art. This gift I have had since childhood. When I hold an object or study a photo of it I can read its energy, I can tell its history and the story behind its past owners.
Although I had a creative career as a Visual Merchandise manager in a West End store before children it was only after the career break that I picked up a camera and started photography. The magazine tells the story of how one night I had this extreme vision like I had never had before. It was like watching a movie in front of my eyes. It started with Victorian letters in envelopes flying at great speed through my letter box and they landed, scattered randomly on my doormat. Then wooden scrabble blocks fell from above and scattered on the collection of post. The word that the letters spelt out was so clear ‘Thank You’.
This vision was so vivid and so intense that the next morning I felt I must reproduce it but I had no idea why or what it would be used for. This in fact was the first piece of art I was to license months later and it was manufactured into greetings cards worldwide by two of the biggest publishers in that area. At that time no one had seen any other art work like this and my licensing company had no idea what to call its style. Years later with the introduction of social media this art form is now at last seen and is called Flat lay art.
Life to me is a rich tapestry and I am so pleased that this vision was made into greeting cards through out the world. I love the idea that people have bought it from a shop, written messages of love within in and then headed off to posted it. Then someone has received it in the post and enjoyed opening and reading the message. It seems a wonderful message of gratitude to spread across the globe.
