                  Why do you make Art?


Art allows you to create a mood , a feeling, capture a moment , recreate a memory , capture an expression , create movement......Art is a never ending learning curve and I think I am totally addicted to finding new ways and ideas , challenging myself and trying new things outside of my comfort zone. I am also blessed to have a family that supports and encourages me to follow my dream.


How do you make Art?


I use a multitude of materials from tissue paper,material,string,wool,gesso,mouldings paste,acrylic,and oil paints to create layers of texture . Using brushes , my fingers , my imagination and lots of rags I try to create movement on the canvas with the texture and colour.

What does it mean to you?
Art to me means the freedom to create . It allows me to express myself through colour and texture. Some people express themselves with written words or vocally but I am a visual person . When I am creating I become so immersed in the image I lose track of time .
I think it is true when people say Art is therapeutic- as long as it going well !..ha ha
Art also allows me to help others in many ways which is awesome.
