My name is Fiona Stolze, and this is my blog. I originally created this space to share all my silk painting experiences, but it soon turned into a site where I began sharing my writings on all the topics that are near and dear to me. As I learned to dig deeply for the gold in my life, I began to see how little substance so many things in my life had – things that had previously seemed to be so valuable. And one by one I began to shed them.
I lost my fear of digging so far that all familiarity fell away and in the process began to embrace stepping into completely new territory.
I have now come to see that almost everything I have rested on and used as a foundation in my life actually has very little substance at all. Most of it can be described as stories and fantasies, all of which simply dissolve when scrutinised under the magnifying glass.
Everything happening around me is pure drama and doesn’t inform me of what is really going on deep within. It’s quite amazing that I have spent my whole life walking through a self-made world of illusion which has literally been hanging by a thread. And it’s so liberating to just completely stop for a moment and remember that it’s all made up.
The deeper I go, the more the challenges surface. And the realisations grow.
My art website Silk & Art is still up and running although I haven’t been to contribute to it very much due to recent full-time studies. You can also find my videos on the Fiona Stolze YouTube channel . And otherwise all details of the different things I do are listed on the Contact page.
I am planning to start sharing my postings again regularly and would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by.
