Outback Creative Artist - Sara Bell 

Why do I make my art?

Thats a tough question as I have drawn and painted from a very young age and dont remember a time when I didnt make art. It is simply a part of me.

How do I make my art?

I have tried many mediums, techniques, surfaces and approaches to making art and I think my strongest skill is my drawing. I use prisma pencils for my drawings of wildlife and portraits, they are a wax based pencil and take many hours to build up the layers I need to create depth of colour. It has taken me nearly two years to master these pencils and I am still learning! As far as painting goes, I started in oil then switched to acrylics (which I still use) but am now revisiting oil and really enjoying the experience. I start with a photo that usually I have taken and go from there.

What does my art mean to me?

I don't know really. I guess its how I define myself, I cant imagine life without creating something. As an adult I enjoyed being part of something bigger than me. Art is part of human history, recording and interpreting the world around us.

What inspires me?

Well, I guess the world around me! I love nature and enjoy highlighting little moments, so often missed. I also paint and draw my family and have done most of my life. Portraiture is a real challenge, always something to learn.

Where inspires me?

Being amongst nature inspires me.

What makes my art unique?

I believe all art is unique, just as the way we think is unique. We cant help but reveal something about ourselves as a created piece of art comes from a blank space so everything that ends up in/on the artwork was a decision made by the artist. We all say something about ourselves and the world around us.
