Description

Making with our hands taps into our innate creativity, and is uplifting, nourishing, and soothing for the mind, body, and soul. Mindful Thoughts for Artists is a lovingly crafted book of reflections on the joy of making and the journey of self-discovery it can take us on.

Appealing to all artists, this curated collection of 25 reflections encourages creators to live in the moment, to observe the beauty in everything, and above all, to ensure that the creative process is driven by love and enjoyment.

The author

Georgina Hooper is a visual artist, painter, and lecturer based in Australia. She trained as a yoga teacher after 6 months of artists’ residences in China and Japan, and her work is in personal collections across the world including a 100 year ceiling installation in a Buddhist temple in Japan. She is also an arts researcher, specializing in Eastern artistic traditions, visual language, and the philosophies that underpin them. As part of her practice-led research she draws together neurology and art history to understand how painting as concentrated meditation can shape the brain and bring about enlightenment.
