"CONQUERING MOUNTAINS AND HELPING OTHER ARTIST DO THE SAME."
Surrealist collage artist, poet and aspiring novelist Jada De Luca is currently living in sunny Western Australia. She creates with the artist in mind, using multiple mediums to serve the imagination and those who endeavour to explore it.
Jada gifts friends books with handwritten messages in the cover and documents the little moments life has to offer on her film camera. When she is not writing poems in the small hours of the morning, she has her hands busy with photography, oil painting, collaging, and weaving.

In a couple pockets of the universe. Here are a few:
"The Writer's Routine" (2020) | Collage & Photography Mixed Media
For the people who write stories in their journals and wonder if they could be considered a "writer". Jada recounts about her tribulations in admitting she is a writer due to the influence of the logical world around her, and how she conquers this through a late night (early morning?) escapade beneath the gaze of the Japanese Alps. Why was she shouting at a mountain at 2AM, and what did she learn about her identity that night?
She is a writer, but nobody the likes of Virginia Woolf stares back at her. Jada outlines an entire day from 6:00AM to the stroke of midnight, set in Hakone beneath Mount Fuji, to discover that there is no set routine for the artist. There is no same day for the imaginative person, but at their core, a routine should only consist of two things: cultivating inspiration and making art. She details a single day in her life.
