In the past summer I did an amazing workshop with a wonderful teacher, artist and authour, Nick Bantock. It was a real process of self discovery for me! At times it was painfully awkward, but so deeply revealing to get glimpses of my soul in the process that it was well worth any awkwardness! The most important aspect about that workshop is that I came away with some new tools for thinking outside the box when it comes to creating art. The feelings of safety in the group, fascilitated by Nick, gave me permission to just play, and be my authentic self, which, I think is a little wacky and wonderful! I can be rather reserved normally,and at times, composed on the outside. But truthfully, I would much rather play with a box of crayons than be all mature and grown up!!!
I have since painted a number of mixed media pieces which I have had made into greeting cards, that will be for sale on this site.
Below are a couple examples of what I am doing! Hope you enjoy!
