I'm Skylar Liberty Rose. I'm a writer. I help women find their courage through creativity. I am driven by a deep desire to see women claim and keep spaces which support and sustain their entire body and their whole being.
I am here to create:
1. The art that is found in the quiet, defiant spaces.
The art that is made in spite of. The creativity that is born knowing full well that it may be erased or caged, but takes its first breath anyway. The raw ragged truths which hold all the riches.
The places that protect and preserve us when the edges feel too frayed, the fabric feels too thin and we don’t know how long we will last or how soon we might crumble.
3. Real connection and true community.
We do not have to be alone during the dark griefs and the long hours. I think that freedom is found when beauty and pain come together and neither one looks away. It's one of the reasons I love roof tops - the sky is full of that kind of witnessing.
4. A different outcome.
A world that applauds aging without apology. A world that questions beauty and body ideals. I am here to celebrate the years that greet me without needing to erase the experiences that are etched into this skin of mine. I am here to cultivate a space where women define themselves. Where we choose not to view our lives through their lens.
5. The words that honor the stories beneath the stories.
To notice which parts are tangled and which parts are threadbare. To recognize and write the fabric of us.
I deeply believe in creativity and its ability to act as a bridge between breaths.
Creativity has helped me to understand myself. To believe myself. To have the courage to claim my own space and share my self-expression.
#CreatingCourage is a series that explores the ways in which creativity contributes to our living and emboldens us to embrace our individuality.
Patreon is a platform which helps support and sustain artists.
It's a wonderful way to contribute towards an engaged community, help shape a creative movement, and also to receive exclusive patron-only shares and early release previews.
Creatives are helping to shape the next chapter of what will one day become history. And creative women are at the front of this bold movement. It's already happening.
I believe that creativity is an intimacy that we have with ourselves. A way of better understanding who we are, and what we desire.
I also believe that conversations exploring how our art intersects with our humanity are critical to our creative welfare.
Creating Conversations is a series of interviews which aims to offer insights into the ways in which our creativity meets and merges with our human experiences.
