Who are you?
I am Wil – Wil I am, well, Wil I Yam (yam yam ay I) but most recently Wil I Ommm as I enjoy to do that too .;)
What do you do?
I’ve been Be-ing more than Do-ing of late, but I enjoy drawing, painting, sketching, and mainly getting out of my own way, allow the art to come through, it’s like meditating, medi-painting I call it and the medium I use mainly is Coffee from Excalibur in Glastonbury (and some ink).
Why do you do it?
I have been on a journey of self-discovery, as we all are – mine has been through depression and art has helped me to be in a state of allowing, I feel free, in tune and in the flow – when others see my work we tend to talk about life, love, upliftment, and hopefully inspires them too.
What brought you to Glastonbury?
Glastonbury, Avalon calls me – she has been part of my journey for around 10 years and as the need for self-expression (and love) has increased I have found myself here more and more between Birmingham and Avalon – I am a City Hippy.
What do you give to Glastonbury/ what does Glastonbury give to you?
Glastonbury has given me love, healing, artistic expression, deep connections and stories that most people wouldn’t believe! This life is truly magical, the signs and opportunities are everywhere!
My artwork will be shown at the soon to be opened White Rabbit! My heart and soul are poured into every one of my pieces, I give all I have and hope that you feel this Too.
How has art helped you to develop as a human?
Every one of these pieces would be more accurately described as Peace’s – I have found my peace in Art.
What other creative things do you do?
I play the bongos at nightclubs, I play trumpet in a brass band for Jagermeister and run and Asian Wedding Band called The Band Baja, I have a Tuk Tuk too! I enjoy making crystal grid, I have also been a personal trainer – I like to be creative in all the things I do. 🙂
What’s happening in your town?
My inner town is now seeing that all things I intend or ask for do come to fruition, you are the powerful, masterful creator of your reality.
Glastonbury is soon to have the best and most magical space EVER! The White Rabbit – opening mid-June – this will have my artwork, workshop spaces for Medi-painting and mandalas with me, Om chanting – Healing, treatment rooms and I’m super excited for everything that’s coming!
Birmingham we have a tribe of City Hippies – we run raves which are conscious, sacred and 432hz, Yoga speed dating and Om chanting too.
Is there anything else you want to add?
Thank you for this opportunity, I thank and honour Glastonbury for all she has given me so far, for every connection made no matter how fleeting, I wish for nothing but the absolute best for you.
Love, light n all that shite!
