“Creativity in any form is something personal that you can share with the world…it is a reflection of life through the eyes of one divine soul wanting to leave their signature behind”

Hi, my name is Cherie Roe Dirksen — welcome to my ‘about’ section.

I suppose you want to poke around my privates then?  Here is a little bit about who I am, what I do and why I do it…

Smelling the Flowers…

We truly live in remarkable times — isn’t this just a great time to be on Earth?  Well, I think so anyway.  So much is taken for granted on a daily basis, some of us often forget to stop and smell the roses along our path in life.  I was there once but woke up gradually to the beauty and sheer wonder of creation.  I decided that I wanted to create a reality that is seeped in vibrant colour, ludicrous humour, whimsical wonder, pensive reflection, unstoppable action and transformational energy through my passions.

Passion no.1 (in no particular order)

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I experience reality and how I want my reality to be experienced.  I popped out of my mother’s womb, brush in hand — okay, not quite but I do remember starting to show a keen interest in drawing and painting at a very early age.

“Life is a palette of unbelievable colors in a sea of energy.” 

My Wonderland is a magical world that is founded on imagination and extends beyond limitations (and a place that I can be completely potty in too — one has to be slightly mad to be happy, you know).

Passion no. 2

My writing is a reflection of how I attain the deeper meaning of the inner and outer nonsense of my life.

“I am very passionate about my beliefs and started writing to ‘de-clutter’ my head.” 

I like to simplify spiritual concepts and universal conundrums.  I love slotting puzzle pieces of information together and seeing the metaphor behind all life experience unfold.

I have always been an inquisitive little blighter — I like to push the boundaries of existence and how I can better myself.  Figuring out what the hell we are doing here is my life ambition and I think I’m pretty close to the answer — or am I?  You’ll have to wait and see (or read, as it were).  Life is so full of brilliant clues and markers that either point us in the direction of truth or steer us deeper into madness (or a bit of both).

My wonderland is a tricky place and is always shifting and re-arranging itself to fit in with multi-dimensional and quantum theories but stick around and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the ever-changing scenery.  There should never be a dull moment in your life!

Passion no.3

Then there is music.  My main instrument is the bass guitar.  I was in a band in my early 20’s and enjoyed the ‘rock’ scene.  Our band was called ‘The Bends’ — yes, it was in the ’90’s’, and yes, we were all into Radiohead (and still are — well that goes for me, at least).

I thought my passion for playing was over when I started taking my art and writing more seriously.  This was not the case (or maybe I’m having a mid-life crisis?) and, just recently, I accepted an invitation to be the bassist for….ah, but that news is still to come.

“There is so much to learn about how sound affects our life and I am only scratching the surface of this new concept.”

I also like to compose instrumental/meditative music.  I started doing this for myself as I was looking for a specific sound to use with my own meditations.

One of my favorite past-times is drifting off on my sofa to the sounds of vibrational harmony — sheer bliss.

In Closing…We Begin

Everyone and everything has and is pure potential — I hope to open this concept up to as many people as possible through my work.  Structure and order are important but creativity is essential to marry the two together and get the most out of your life experience.
