Awesome Artists of 2013

It's a wrap...the Spotlight studio has now closed down..sad though it sounds it is all evolving exactly as it should, in Divine order....We have had so much fun:

painting,splashing,trashing,stringing,scribbling,laughing, screaming and exploring our creativity. I love these girls, and while I've made a creative space and encouraged them to find their own visual voices I feel my purpose as a Tutor has  been served.....and it is time for change. A new space is now becoming available via the gorgeous Julianne Hender and "The Journey" will continue. I look forward to our continued friendships and the next chapter in the lives of these Artists :)

Oh Happy Days!

And another three paintings go to good homes.
December is looking good already. Just great to see my babies find the right places and people to be with. I love, love, love being an Artist

Art Therapy

  1.   I've had the privilege of working  with Art Therapy in Aged Care for many years now, and began this project "Glorious Spring" at Vincent Court in Kempsey last year when activities coordinator Kate Segal contacted me.
The Mural was painted by a group of 12 residents,now in their eighties, most of whom have not picked up a paintbrush since schooldays (a long time ago!).
This painting is full of colour and shows the hidden talent of these people I have grown to love and admire.
They pooled their talents and encouraged and included everyone who was willing to have a go.
 They shared with me how uplifting,and relaxing they found  the activity. It was a real buzz to hear one lady tell me how surprised she is to discover her talent and imagination at this age."Just goes to show you're never too old to learn something new". "Glorious Spring" now proudly hangs in the main dining room to be admired by family and friends."

It's not "just" moving paint around on's the process of creating that takes us away to our "Happy Place"......magic happens as Libby starts another painting.
Jules signs her beautiful vase of flowers....I love the depth and energy here.
It has been a privilege to teach Art for over ten years now and watch hundreds of paintings emerge from a spark of inspiration.
