The Art Of Life podcasts 3
12 inspiring dialogues on integrity, freedom, making space, purpose, meaning and more
This is the third of The Art Of Life podcasts series' - a collection of talks on areas of modern life that we're often - consciously or not - not living up to our immense creative potential in.
As a high-sensory-sentient and uncompromising visionary artist, I've carved out a particular reality for myself, using my inner resources to bring colour, depth, meaning and harmony into all that I do.
These talks are a means of sharing some of my interconnected thoughts-feelings-vision with you.
Having grown up in a tiny mountain village on a Scottish island, I graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 and Edinburgh College of Art in 2007. I've travelled extensively, lived barefoot and free, and explored various creative realms and fields of study, never compromising my deep vision of freeing human creative potential.
In general, I found the 'art world' highly corrupt, hierarchical, and an offense to real creativity, and so I mostly worked outwith conventional realms.
My colourful international career has involved a radical studio practise as well as visionary work transforming community and landscape and contributing to dialogue around transforming human consciousness. I also write passionately on politics, sacred underlying reality, and how we support shifts into more harmonious, healthy, cooperative and fulfilling rhythms of work and life.
I run a magical Arthouse in a previously-abandoned medieval quarter of an Italian hill town. I hold the keys to the city for having brought it to global attention, and several other awards for my art and spiritual values, projects and social entrepreneurship.
My art is in collections around the world, including a large body of work in Glasgow Women's Library.
