Inspired by plant medicine teachings and music; colour, spirit, and emotions are united to captivate and heal the spectator. Her own creative process starts by listening and trusting her intuition for the purpose of inspiring others on their creative paths, encouraging everyone to nurture their talents and dreams.
We recently asked Scarlet some questions about her inspirations:
Q: Where do you find your creative inspiration?
A: "Nature! Especially plant medicines."
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: "The spiritual journey that I pursue in life is completely intertwined with in my art. As my paint brush moves intuitively across a canvas, I have the solid vision of contributing beauty and light into this world. I ignite an understanding of truth and individual awakening through the profound blossoming of creativity in the hopes that it becomes contagious. The love of creation is what drives me, love is the basis of the universe"
Q: What art/artist do you most identify with?
A: "Vladimir Kush because his surrealist art takes you on a Metaphorical Voyage into a worldly scapes. "
Q: What role does an artist have in society?
A: "Art has a huge roll in society, because it’s always whatever the world needs it to be. When the whole world feels like a dumpster fire people need somewhere to escape. People turn to paintings, music, movies, stories, poetry, and anything as a means to escape the things they can’t control. Creating and being a spectator of art gives us hope.. It ‘s a mirror to society. When the world feels unjust and wrong art gives us the ultimate freedom to push back. Art speaks volumes than literal, singular voices. "
Q: What is your artistic outlook on life?
A: "Appreciation! Art brings more Creativity, Satisfaction, and Happiness into our Lives. I feel art appreciation improves our quality of life and has the power to makes us feel wonderful . When we create art, we elevate our mood, we improve our ability to problem solve, and open our minds to new ideas."
Q: What advice would you give your younger self?
A: "You are enough "
