Art & Writings

A Body Filtering the World

For me creativity is a process of bodily filtration. The artist observes what is: be it a vision, insight, action, or feeling, then processes it through the soul of eyes, skin and other organs, and in their hands it becomes something new -its own entity.

Artwork

I draw, paint, craft and sculpt. I love working in new materials because I thrive on learning new things and creating new connections. This past year I have been working with Fionnán / Molinia Caerulea, the Bog Grass I first encountered as a child and am now surrounded by. See old and new artwork here: Past Artwork ~ New Artwork ~ Spiritual Drawings

Words

I have written poems for much of my adult life. I explore the themes that matter most to me: spirituality, ecology, femininity, everyday life, politics and love. Read recent poems here: Writings

Healing demolishes
The architecture
Of suffering
And unearths
Biological wisdom.

ABOUT

Aoife Valley 2020

For over 25 years I have been an independent workshop leader in the fields of non-violence and community arts, helping people reconnect with the spirit of compassion and creativity within. For 10 years I have been a natural beekeeping educator and taught body-centred mindfulness meditation to thousands of people.

I have experienced over 20,000 hours on silent retreat in the Buddhist tradition and lived and worked in many monasteries and retreat centres. My daily meditation practice and reverence for God and Mother Earth are the ground on which I stand.

I grew up during the war in Northern Ireland in a violent and neglectful home. In my mid-twenties I left an MA in Fine Art to move to the wild and beautiful Donegal Gaeltacht I'd been visiting since I was a child. Since then this has been home -where I live healthy, write and make art, care for honeybees, bheith ag foghlaim Gaeilge, and learn from the land and its people how to live a life of peace.
