Welcome to my blog,
I am an artist and graphic designer, a blogger and a part time entrepreneur, and I work as an art director, in Bucharest, Romania.
This blog is a place where I share my thoughts and my artistic endeavors, as often as time allows me to.
Here you can find writings on the ways of the soul, inspirational quotes, paintings, drawings, photography, graphic design, mood boards, maybe a recipe or two, along with some of the images I hoard on my Pinterest boards.
My need for visual expression is only a byproduct of the need to understand who I am, and I have been on a spiritual journey to clarify and own the aspects of my making since as long as I can remember, more so in the past 15 years.
I think life is a never ending journey towards ourselves and that that is constantly expanding, so we are spiraling upwards until our physical dissolves, only to collapse onto ourselves again and start over, in a different form. But it can never really end.
To me, the anxiety that society instills in us into achieving its standard goals is un unhealthy a surrogate to true fulfillment. Personal fulfillment can never come from reaching the standards imposed by others, it can only come from owning our true power, and that power is deep in our core self, not outside it. We make the world as we are, as deep as we can go within.
I think we are a part of a fabric which expands and transforms eternally. There is no limit to what we can learn and no end to the ways in which we can love. There is always room for love and making space for that should be a reflex for all of us.
I believe in mindfulness, in the value of boundaries and the power of good intentions.
It may sound utopic, but I believe we are meant to strive for these things to truly feel fulfilled. It’s also the only way we can let go of the how, embody our true power and build better.
It’s also OK to leave some things undone, since we never really get it perfectly right, because in a system where everything transforms and evolves, no structure can remain exactly the same while it’s accommodating more and better.
I think peace is our birthright and that we should claim it. Society needs individuals who are friends with themselves, who can come form a place of equanimity, as Deepak Chopra puts it.
I am passionate about the inner workings of our bodies and souls, and the dance we do inside the illusion of time and space, and beyond it; the way we evolve as humans, how we connect and interact, what we choose to perpetuate and what we choose to leave behind.
You can check out some of my graphic design, retouching and digital art work on my other blog, inspirationpatterns.
You can connect with me by dropping me a line here or on my business page, Theracreativa, which brings my art, and also my design services, to the world.
I recently published my first e-book, it’s an art and personal mantras e-book meant to be a tool for the self care we should all practice, you can find more on it here.
You can check out my Art Poster Collections, available on my Displate page.
I think each of us can find themselves in a tribe, and part of this blog’s purpose, besides being a creative outlet for my soul, and a playground for my organizing freak mind, is to be a coffee stop for like minded people. Or tea stop, which ever you prefer.
Feel free to stop by anytime. ❤
