Me: TEDx Speaker, Performer, Spaceship Charmer and Artist. .
Hello, I am Rosie Allen. I have quite a varied past. I am a creative, and as such, have lived a fairly creative path...
My path is full of varied interests which have guided me to an enriching life I now lead.
I have spent most of my career history as a Domestic Abuse Specialist, supporting victims, perpetrators and providing many trainings in this area. This fulfils my deep desire for respect, justice and making a difference in such a dark area. That same desire lead me on the path to the TEDx Talk: The Hidden Message In Your Silence.
Other than that, I run workshops and retreats around connection and freedom for a more creative life; I am a performer (love Comedy Improv and used to do a lot of singing), a spaceship charmer (fairly new to this very cool instrument called a Handpan) and at my core: An Artist.
From a young age I was fascinated with the female form in my art and animals. It wasn't long before I started combining the two and 15 years later the idea was born 'I could create Personalised Spirit Animal Paintings!' And so now I do!
I have also a keen interest in the role of Gender and women in society and the preconceived ideas we get fed through media, film, TV, adverts etc.
This lead me to a collection of paintings on The Dangers Of Disney. Where I used some of Disney's films to question the dodgy messages they send children - especially around Gender.
Life is a creative journey and I never know where I will end up next - if you'd like to follow some of my journey find me on Instagram!
