I’m so happy to finalise this music video project, and one of my first fully realised creative projects that I can share. A turning point in my creative career was my decision to move away from corporate work and focus on ART. I had 6 years corporate design under my belt and NO portfolio work that I could share. I spent a year of self study and have initiated a few projects now making videos for musicians .. I realised I didn’t have to play this corporate, idealised, robotic role anymore and could be my full self !! It is so fricken fun !!

“Why are you painting your tree fluorescent green ?” When I was studying art and design at college I started making papier-mâché items for set design, one piece was a giant mangrove root that I could literally crawl under and paint and sculpt from underneath. It was a fantastic time, getting paint in my hair and everywhere else. I was painting my tree whilst sitting on the floor in the middle of the studio and the rest of my group could see what I was doing from their desks. I was really keen to get a really cool textured bark effect on my model. So what I did was - I found this really old paint in a hardware store that was kind of gone off and lumpy and was basically scraping it onto my model with a fork to create texture of bark. But this paint was bright green and people were looking at me funny.. When the green paint texture layer had dried, I painted it brown and then did a really light brush paint over the top to create a lighter colour and the bark looked amazing. This was a very important lesson for me in my creative career, realising that people will see an unfinished product of yours but you have a vision in mind - stick to that vision and it doesn’t matter how it looks when you want to talk about it halfway along the process. This idea is something that has stuck with me throughout my whole creative career, to be confident in your end vision, open to feedback and to share work even if, at that moment in time, it doesn’t look quite right 😊 embrace the fact that it is a “work in progress” and you want feedback but also have confidence in your own creative vision, the end goal. I always think of my green “work in progress” tree when I have to share draft versions of work to clients, even though what I am showing doesn’t match my end vision, I want to bring my client on the creative journey with me 😊 x

I would like to share a Mind Map with 8 Creative Personalities. 1. Dreamer 2. Producer 3. Innovator 4. Artist 5. Adventurer 6. Thinker 7. Maker 8. Visionary The Mind Map drawn by hand with colors helps us to expand the whole picture, to see it clearly on the paper ant to make our brain function better. This process creates a space for NEW IDEAS TO COME!!!! I refused to draw since I was 6 years old and never ever wanted to start again. Once I have learned and experienced that combining DRAWING with WRITING makes our brain like a TURBO MACHINE!! No matter how you draw, your brain appreciates it a lot!!! I can explain ALL during MIND MAP session! P.S. Mind Map inspired by the Adobe Test of CREATIVE TYPES https://mycreativetype.com/
