About Me

I'm Bec Fowler - Artist and Mentor

And here's how I got here.....

I learned at a young age to do what I needed to do to be safe and receive love and approval from my family and authority figures. In this process, my sensitive, authentic, artistic, spiritual nature became closeted away in favour of efficiency, perfection, achievement, vigilance and being the ‘go-to-person’ to solve problems. I lost trust in my ability to make decisions, to know what felt good in my body and what was true for me. I gave my power away to others and attempted to use my head to figure things out.

In my early 30’s, after my Mum’s death, I developed panic attacks and crippling anxiety. My job leading a local disability service, was highly demanding and it became increasingly difficult for me to fulfil my role and keep up my professional façade.

Around the age of 38, I discovered I’m a Human Design Projector and it was no wonder I was feeling burnt out and in need of support! I went for EMDR counselling and at the same time, re-discovered my love of intuitive art making. I prioritised creating art in my spare time and found the process offered me an invaluable outlet for exploring my feelings and expressing what I had no words for.

After several months of EMDR and talk therapy, I intuitively knew I needed to go deeper – to bypass my clever brain and connect with my body. Around this time, I discovered Chris Zydel and intuitive process painting. I took a leap of faith and signed up to do her Expressive Arts and Intuitive Painting teacher training program in 2018/2019. These ten months travelling to and from San Francisco from Ireland (my home then) and the work I did within this program, were pivotal and transformational.

In 2019 I left my job, moved to the UK, and set up my business. And then the real healing work began! Stripped of my previous work-related identities, I began deconditioning from all the ‘shoulds’ and ‘musts’ I’d lived by up to this point and started to peel back the layers of who I thought I was. Messy, painful, ‘dark night of the soul’ come to mind, as I remember the questioning, struggling and death-throes I went through to reconnect with the truth of who I am.

I’m still deconditioning and believe it may be a lifelong journey, but a worthy one. Through the process, I’ve reconnected with my body as the true ally she is, in anchoring me in my knowing and sovereignty. She is a faithful compass guiding me to make aligned decisions and offering me a safe harbour.

The creative process has been and continues to be one of my greatest teachers. I’ve learned how to trust my intuition, and to drop my agenda and trust the bigger process at play, through engaging whole-heartedly with the intuitive painting process and other intuitive creative processes.

Curiosity, and growth and transformation light me up and spur me to continue with my own healing work and to hold space for others to do theirs.

More about my qualifications and background

I’m a qualified teacher (with a Bachelor of Arts in Education degree) and have experience and qualifications in leadership and mentoring.

Through my studies, career experience and training, I’ve developed a strong grounding in psychology, behaviour and compassionate ways of supporting people with healing, personal growth and development. A particular highlight and honour for me, was attending an in-person two day conference about trauma and addiction with Dr Gabor Maté in 2018. 

My years of teaching, leadership and mentoring experience in the area of disability and mental health services, have given me the capacity for meeting and honouring people where they’re at and working with people at every level. Through nearly two decades of working in this area, I’ve cultivated patience, compassion and deep listening skills.

I’ve a lifetime of personal art making experience. I studied art at secondary school to portfolio/exam level and studied ceramics and expressive arts as part of my degree course at university. My personal healing journey reawakened my love for art making and a passion for exploring the healing capacity of engaging with the creative process, in a big way in 2015. In particular, finding ways to express myself in a raw and authentic way, which led me to finding Orly Avineri’s inspiring and raw approach to art making. I attended two deep dive workshops with her in art journaling (in 2016 and 2017). I then took a leap of faith and trained as an Intuitive Painting and Expressive Arts Facilitator with Chris Zydel and Tim Lajoie in California over a ten-month period in 2018/19. 

Over the years, I’ve developed my own eclectic, spiritually-based creative process practice and have used this to transform my life and support me in healing from trauma, anxiety and panic attacks. My practice continues to grow and change and support me in my daily life.

I’m a lifelong learner and will always be curious about all things related to the human experience. I’ve been experimenting with Human Design since 2015 and love what this system has to offer each of us. I’m particularly passionate about supporting Projectors to understand their unique essence and role, and to decondition, so they can step fully into the powerful beings they are here to be.

I have had the great honor of working with Bec as an Intuitive Arts Facilitator, a Human Design guide, a compassionate heart and great listener.

I can not say enough about her presence of mind in those roles, her humility, her commitment to helping women finding their true, untethered expression, and her ability to guide, nudge, reflect back one’s wisdom and light, and open the way for greater authenticity & honesty.

She is caring, clear, gentle and delightful to work with. AND she is an amazing artist to boot. Her work moves me to the depths and clearly comes from a place of surrender and co-creation with a deep source. My life has been enriched and deepened as a result of the work we’ve done together!
