It is great to have you here on my Patreon page, thank you for coming!

Welcome to the world of Realityarts!!

My passion is creating and sharing how Art and Creativity impacts our health and well-being.  I focus on how we can use our creativity to unlock our hidden talents.

Patreon is a place where you can support artists who create content you love, so they can make more content. It's kind of like a membership with different tiers, the cool thing is that you get rewards for each month you support, whether that is just once or ongoing.

About Me
I have been an artist for over 20 years, a BloggerPodcaster and a Creative Encourager. As a Carer for my mother for over 17 years I have seen first hand the changes that take place in a loved one living with dementia with the ongoing considerations and the impact it has on the family.  

                                                            

I used art and creativity as a tool to help me through the 17 years and saw first hand the positive impact that it had for me as well as my mother and I went on to share my art and creativity workshops and resources at a Specialist Dementia Center in London.

I believe everyone should have access to the arts and. by creating and sharing what I am doing, encouraging participation and hopefully being inspiring means so much to me, especially when you can create important resources for free which is what I do on my YouTube channelBlog and Podcast.

The importance of the arts to our lives really came to the forefront of what I was doing when my mum started showing signs of Alzheimer’s which is now in the severe stages and while the effects were devastating, Art and Creativity helped us navigate the uncharted territory and find ways to express what we were feeling and there has and continues to be so many treasured moments.

Art gives us the space to express ourselves in ways that words can not. I have been creating and developing resources for those want to create in the midst of their situation. I also started a free Arts and Health network sharing and curating information about Arts and Health events globally.

My goal is to help you find ways in which I can help you incorporate art and creativity into your life, to find those pockets of time and help you to apply what you learn to your own life. My art and workshops are designed to:

  • encourage & inspire you to dream,
  • remind you of all that you already know, 
  • help you discover the best parts of yourself.

There is so much MORE I want to do and I’d LOVE for you to be part of the adventure with me.
Through your subscription to my Patreon page, I will have the resources to create more art and more content (think ongoing workshop series, tutorials, vlogs, podcasts & books!). And you will have access to as little or as much as you want. You decide when you select your subscription tier!

I want to create community; a space where we can all share and spread our creative wings together. I want to share the ins an the outs of this imperfect, messy and beautiful journey and I want inspire you on your own journey.  The ability to create isn't reserved for the special. It is for all of us.

"Your soul knows there is more,  Your mind has forgotten. My work aims to remind you.”
