Artist Nuria González Alcaide shares how she has awoken and unleashed her inner artist after years of "following the line". Nuria draws on society for inspiration; her project 'When you pretend...' explores themes of compliancy, pretence and solitude, when we feel the need to hide or mask our emotions to conform. Art is a tool for self-exploration; she goes beyond her perfectionist tendencies and allows her emotions to pour onto the canvas. In our chat she shares her studio rituals, creative process and her dreams as an artist.
Now more than ever, having a sacred space that allows us to escape from the stresses of life, the endless notifications that flood our screens and the noise of daily life is needed for our mental health and overall well-being. Here are 3 simple steps you can take to create your own sacred space at home to bring more peace, reflection and creativity to your life.
There is a common expression that a cluttered home leads to a cluttered mind. When the physical space around us is messy and disorganised, we may feel heavy and unfocused; which in turn makes it more challenging for us to navigate our work and creative endeavours. I spoke to Lili Pettit, Founder of Clutter Healing about Holistic Home Organising and the impact this has on our well-being.
