I love the green of an Australian landscape; always have.
I know it is part of the reason I moved to the sub tropical zone of North Coast New South Wales 20 years ago, where I could surround myself with the green of sugarcane, trees, pasture and forests.
Perhaps it is synchronistic that I find myself placing this small series of work online as we are currently surrounded by bushfires. A reminder that Nature can regenerate after such devastation, and if we get some rain soon - hopefully quickly. (November 2019)
All works are on professional artist 210gsm textured watercolour paper, unframed.
This beautiful series of works are now available online through Bluethumb Art Gallery.
Contemplative Art Journaling
In collaboration with fellow artist and yoga teacher, Susi Sweeney, we are offering a series of events on Contemplative Art Journaling.
This is a wonderful mindful art practice for anyone that would like to initiate their creative expression, together with those that have been an artist for many years, and feel they need a refresh.
We offer a beautiful space that is both restful and supportive to help you explore your mark making without rules or outcomes.
A non-judgemental approach to dive deeper into connecting with your creative muse, allowing your authentic artistic expression to emerge, in a nurturing playful environment - just like when you were young. As seen on my instagram feed here.
We provide all the materials and you can also access Susi's beautiful Byron Bay Art Journals to take home and continue your practice.
We will be holding these 3 hour events regularly throughout the year at the Wheel of Life, Brunswick Heads. If you would like to stay informed with dates and details please message me and I will put you on our mailing list.
We are also open to coming to you and offering this event for personal celebrations or corporate staff trainings.
We would love to meet you here.
When I come to create I often fall into a quiet contemplation and meditative space, and in that, my mind will often simply surrender to the deeper presence of silence, stillness and spaciousness.
It is here that I wait for the intention, the vision, or the inference of the ‘next step’ of my art practice.
Over the last few years I have learned the value of slow, quiet and simple; and how these can inform and enrich my work.
