Fine Art Specialist/Nature Photographer
My journey as an artist began when I watched my Dad placing coloured mosaic pieces together as a child. I have continued my interest of being creative and find my journey has had endless possibilities in the use of various art materials. I am inspired by ancient writings to create my own symbolic language. I am a formally trained artist and attained a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts and continued my studies to follow my dream of teaching Visual Arts to Secondary School students; in addition to teaching at local Art Galleries and Art Centres.
The steps involved in creating a piece of artwork are the same for all media (Paint, Collage, Mixed Media).
- Visualize a plan
- Sketch the idea
- Create intuitively
- This will ensure a unique art piece
