Hi, I'm Minette
"Making art is a courageous act of self-love."
Hi, I'm Dr. Minette Riordan. I am an artist, writer and Creative Depth Coach. My creative passion and inspiration flow from my connection to nature and to animals. I believe that making time for making art is as essential to self-care as exercise and good food.
I recently had an aha moment when I was looking back over the last few years of photos of my art and could see my favorite subjects and styles emerge. I'm not sure why I was so surprised to see all the animals and flowers on canvas and paper. I've always loved being outside and felt an intimate connection with animals of all kinds.
In my work as a coach and creative guide, I love teaching others to find the most authentic expression of their creative voice and to explore the edges of their skills and abilities without self-judgement.
So much of art making is about learning to see both what's happening within us and what's growing or surrounding us in the world. Curiosity and play are the core of my own approach to making art and what I love to inspire in others.
