Sherry Farsad BIO I knew I could draw and was creative from a young age, however I also believed the social convictions of art not being a career and the starving artist stigma. My curious nature also compelled me to learn and explore all other advised avenues in Academia. In part it was a fear of facing myself and being judged, ultimately art is quite subjective and my style was rejected by the art institutions and teachers, so I avoided it completely by taking the Academic measurable subjects only like mathematics. Universe pushed me to a point where my beliefs have completely changed and I have gained a certainty like never before that the world is not as they all said it was. Nothing is fixed, we in fact, manifest everything as we go with our thoughts. What we give energy to becomes our reality. The more I looked within and trusted myself and the inner feeling, I realised who I really was and I found the strength to follow my feeling, no matter what the circumstance. I stepped into fire and it turned into flowers, and so now I know when my feeling depicts me to “ jump off the cliff ” , steps will appear for the next move, at the right time. My paintings depict my journey and experiences with feelings and soul in various styles. My insights are portrayed through my paintings using colours and subjects that convey my vision and hope that viewers can feel the emotions embedded into the artwork. I hope my art is received by those on their journey to break out of the stories and limitations of this illusive world of duality we live in, believed to be our reality in our mind!
