Where does creativity come from? When an idea forms in ones mind is it simply neurons carrying memories, experiences and emotions colliding to form a creative thought, or does it come from “somewhere else”? Is that initial spark some sort of divinity that one taps into? Although I relate finding my calling as an artist to being reborn, creative ideas that magically appear in my mind are of a similar nature. They’re often initially chaotic, and I have to make sense of it later. The universe seems much the same (if that’s what I’m connected to – or even if it’s the microscopic universe within my physical brain), there’s chaos which has an order or purpose to it.

Starseed is the child in this painting, being born from the universe – expelled from an exploding star – as is someone who found their calling, as is a creative idea that bursts into your mind. The light is blinding, there’s chaos, noise and debris but you can’t stop that seed of thought, you can’t miss it, and you can’t ignore it because it’s just too beautiful. One could argue philosophically that we are all children of the stars, and that creativity is our connection to the universe – an invisible umbilical chord that feeds us with music, dance, poetry and art.

I cannot fathom how sterile the world would be without it.
