Art to me is as natural as breathing. It is a way to express myself in colour and form and creativity. I have been interested in art ever since I was a child, when I would sketch and colour in art books. I have always loved working with all forms of art and craft and tried my hand at pencils, watercolour, acrylic oils, mixed medium, collage and silk dying over the years. I have enjoyed spinning and weaving, pottery, sewing costumes and flower arranging. I have also written a spiritual story for children called Rainbow Crystal Dreaming. I enjoyed the facilitation of art exhibitions for our children’s schools as well. Over a period of raising 5 children and living on a farm, nursing and looking after grandchildren, and working as an intuitive healer, I returned to art and painting after a 17 year absence in 2013.
I am enjoying my new found approach to art now as I now don’t worry about what others think of my art. Whilst it is good to be recognized for what I do and to sell something, this does not govern my art expression. I love to paint to music and am not afraid to give something new a go! This keeps me excited about what I paint. It makes for quite an eclectic range to exhibit.
What I have found it that the approach to art is changing for the better over the years and we have some wonderful teachers who are willing to teach all different expressions of art through all mediums. The public also sees art differently and this allows for a greater freedom of expression for the artist. It is now almost that anything goes! It is exciting to see just what people are capable of creating!
As of now, I am able to put in place all the skills I have learnt, so that when I am ready to create I will know how to achieve what I have inside my head! I would like to be able to put on paper exactly what I see so very clearly in my head! I find if I am centered and in alignment with myself it is easier.
You will see quite a different range of art on offer on the following pages. I am open to discussion on all and am more than happy to share my creative processes.
