Thank you for coming here to read about me.

My name is ArunDitha (Arun~Light, Ditha ~ Beloved Daughter) and I am a creatrix. From classical Latin, the word creātrīx means mother, creatress, an authoress of a situation. The creatrix gives birth to her creations. This is how I feel when I make art. So much of my work is born through an experience of pain and joy; inner disharmony. When I write and when I sing, when I move and when I teach, the chaos inside me finds a sense of understanding itself. That which was disorganised is crystallised in a kind of coherence.


My creations are a flow finding their own realisation, eventually transforming into a living, breathing object. To me, everything is alive, even what is commonly perceived as inanimate. In fact, this is one of the fundamental perspectives held within the shamanic worldview, which I inhabit in many ways.

My story is simple. I was born to do this. Perhaps there is some part of you which resonates with a same kind of knowing, that there is a reason for you being here; there must be. Well, the truth is that I make my reason every day. Every day I find a new reason. Every day I face new demons and come out on the other side. Every day I am reborn so I can continue to be alive and whole, to find and make meaning in my existence.

This is the best way I know how to continue when it gets hard. Hope keeps me going. Art keeps me going. Service keeps me going. Joy in the little things keeps me going. Gratitude keeps me going. And today, I share all of it with you so that I can make my universe a more loving, kind and real place. A moment at a time.

 Once, there was a little girl who was in a lot of pain. Around her raged domestic wars and a thick, sludgy precarity which touched everything. It would sometimes hold her down for days. 

 Her expression kept walking her towards the light.
