I let the light in - a small (6 x 8") framed original watercolour painting

You are not broken, we are all beautifully flawed.

from The Flawed COLLECTION

A delicate drawing and watercolour on paper in fresh greens with a highlight of silver framed in natural timber.

The paintings in this collection have been created purely from my heart. It's a dream of mine come true having combined a daily practice of drawing with my shift towards abstract paintings.

They were created from a very heart centred space and came about quite unexpectedly after I wrote an inspired poem late one night earlier this year. I then knew I had to slowly but intentionally work away at creating the artworks in small moments and the ideas and concepts then flowed easily. 

I often find words wanting to pour out of me late at night and by morning they're gone so when I started this poem I knew I needed to stay with it to the end, and it was then midnight. So it gracefully came to life as the words fluidly came out of me and into my journal.

This is the poem I wrote that inspired the whole collection.

Midnight poem

I’m not broken

You’re not broken

We’re both just flawed

Beautifully and perfectly flawed

Exactly as we’re supposed to be

It’s ok to have parts of us that need to heal

We can all heal

Nature lives in an imperfect existence

So can we

It’s normal to be flawed

Because you are not less than

You are a work in progress

But also you are complete

You are enough

You can heal

You are not broken

The smallest silver detail is like our flaws. The parts of us we don't always want to face but when we become brave enough or are forced to then we feel expansive growth exactly like the light flooding into a dark room once the door is opened. It's scary and uncomfortable at first, then it becomes euphoric and exhilarating and your quest for further transformation continues.
