“Our lives are our greatest creation. They are the blank canvas. How we live, what we create with what we have been given, is the art.”
Creativity is intelligence having fun.
The Enneagrams (pronounced “Enya – Grams”) define nine basic personality types. (Actually there is a lot more to the Enneagrams than personality types but its the most popular aspect.) Furthermore, they can be sub-divided into wing-types, Instinctual types and levels of integration. As a result of their in-depth descriptions, the Enneagrams will help you gain deeper understanding of yourself and others.
“Why do I paint? Creativity has flowed through my veins from childhood. I was constantly creating. Automatic juice machines, novel (actually really weird), outfits for my dolls, exotic tree-houses… But art is fickle because at school in my final year I failed my art exam with one teacher. In contrast, I past with distinction with another. This showed me that art is personal, and as a result, not to be taken too personally when likes or dislikes occur. It was a great liberating lesson to paint what inspires, rather than tires you. Actually its a great way to live your life.”
