ELEANOR SARA DARLEY - ARTIST
I like plants as my muse - plants and their environments, and the medicine or message they imbue. They bring me an aliveness and a relationship that goes beyond intuition or instinct, which forms and transforms my art work. From the encounter, I am also left changed by their character, and usually restored in some way.
Art & ECOLOGY
My work extends to teaching, counselling and facilitating art and creativity workshops for groups, or one to one. Trained in anthroposophical art therapy, I also practise as a transpersonal art counsellor. I like to specialise working with plants and ecology.
I have facilitated transformative art programmes in the UK and in Mexico, and worked consulting internationally. My background merges years of PR and event management, teaching, creative facilitation, and a deep immersion into the traditional Mexican philosophies of nature-based awareness. This has been a 15 year practise understanding rituals and different natural methods to bring healing and balance - one of the greatest of these being a way to acknowledge there can be communication or synergy with the plants growing around us, and the spirit of a place. This for me has helped create a healthy practise of creativity, connection and self enquiry - and beautiful discoveries.
