I started my art career as a coloured pencil artist - they suited my nomadic lifestyle and you could just set up anywhere and make a coloured pencil drawing.
I loved them because I could get a fine point and draw tiny little details - and was enthralled by the way you could draw and layer the colours over each other - and I began to discover the transformational qualities of art in my life...draw it enough and it will happen. I drew some amazing pictures with them - some of which are the first limited edition prints to be made..for example
But during my thirties my back became so bad that I had to give up coloured pencil drawing - and took up acrylic painting instead - sitting on an exercise ball and painting onto giant canvases -over the years my paintings became bold and simple ...and sold really well...like these ones
It was transformational art - instead of the fine detail I was painting more of the pure essense of what I wanted to happen in my life -
It was during this time that I began to embrace doing things in a series...it had always happened organically in the past, over years things change. But I began to set my self the challenge of creating at least 10 gorgeous things in an art series before I would let myself move on
it would always take many more artworks to get to the ten great ones..and I felt that this pattern began to transform my art at even faster rate
Then when I became interested in the internet - I realised that I had the perfect artworks to create little chapters, episodes and even little downloadable booklets of each series of my art...and a few years ago I went back to uni to learn how to be truly creative in my expession of this on the web - I LOVE IT - and have been creating little mini-sites of my work...like these ones
But the truth is I have become distracted from the internet...because I AM SCULPTING....We have bought a gorgeous block in Beverley Western Australia that is long and thin on the great southern highway...and I am building giant sculptures all over it....
well...I havent built a huge one yet because we only bought the property a few months ago...but I have been setting up the production areas for my smaller stuff - and just sculpting sculpting and sculpting....
I am making concrete bowls, infused with oxides - and gorgeous plinths to build the organic gardens and aquaponic ponds....
You can see what I am going to build here....you can see it in my drawings
So any print that you buy from this website will go into helping to build gorgeous gorgeous gardens - based on an artist and permaculture principles
or you can subscribe - and get sent updates so you can see what happens...I have been getting back into making webpages and soon will launch the new website...(excited)
