About the Artist:
Naomi Jean Cooper, Intuitive Artist https://www.instagram.com/naomijeancooper_art/
WHY I CREATE: a way of being
Creating helps me connect to the infinite creative flow, deepen into compassion, and dwell in the moment. When I found myself on a journey through severe depression, one that stripped away false narratives about who I was supposed to be, creating art helped me find and love my authentic self. This has become a way of being for me.
WHAT I CREATE: explorations and invitations
My art is an exploration of the natural cycles of creation and destruction that are found in our bodies, in the world around us, and throughout the cosmos. My art is a reflection of my experience when I create. It is art that invites us to be here now.
HOW I CREATE: play and somatic intuition
I create from a place of play and somatic intuition. It is a practice of listening to, honoring, and trusting the physical sensations in my body. When I create, I deepen into experiencing the infinite, creative, compassionate energy that is both within me and beyond me.
MY TOOLS: pencil, paint, and pixels
I love the strong mind/body connection that comes with using a pencil, a tool I’ve been using to create as long as I can remember. I love the endless, thrilling possbilities of creating with acrylic paint. I love digital alchemy possibilities with pixels in Adobe Photoshop. I might use just one or all of these tools in a single piece of artwork. How they might come together is all part of the play.
WHERE I CREATE: my art studio
My art studio space is a beautiful and important place to create. It can be quite meditative and solitary, which is exactly what I need — some of the time.
WHERE I CREATE: live music performances
It is inspiring and invigorating for me to draw during live music performaces. These spaces are buzzing with people creating and receiving vital energy, and I love to draw while participating in that exchange. The local music community in Seattle, WA USA where I live is astonishingly beautiful, and I’m grateful for the warm welcome and appreciation I receive when I show up at venues with my pencils and and paper. Of course, sometimes I have to put it all down and just dance!
Thanks for your interest in my art! – Naomi Jean Cooper
