so it's monday and i am five days out from the one thing i have been working towards for as long as i can remember. interestingly enough i am finding it hard to figure out exactly where i am emotionally with THIS.
ME; the very one who NEVER has a hard time identifying her emotional....umm...."momentary existence?"
you see here is the thing...these past weeks i began exploring a different part of my Self Creatively and this has really taken me WAY outside of my comfort… Continue

Hi everybody :)
Im writting this post with a bit delay but I couldn't do it earlier. But better later than never :) Just want to say that on the 21 Februrary one of the most known Poish painters Jerzy Nowosielski died in the age of 88. He was one of the best Polish painters, graphic and stage designer. The most stupid thing is that after his death on the 24 February somebody broke into his home and stole some of his icons :(
I won't be writting here about his life… Continue

While traveling in Ireland in June of 2010, we came upon this monument to The Unknown Woman Worker. It was at an entrance to Europa Buscentre in Belfast and I found myself very fascinated with it. It was created by Lois Walsh and is a tribute to all the women, paid and unpaid who contribute to the… Continue

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of meeting Mo Godbeer and she is an absolute delight. I flew from Melbourne to Sydney to attend an Encaustic Workshop Mo was running at the North Sydney Community Centre. I was a little hesitant at first about attending. The thought of leaving the kids and flying interstate for the day made me a little nervous. I guess I was more worried about my kids killing each other while I was away, but in the end they talked me into it and practically pushed me out… Continue

"White canvas stares back at me
Screaming go on I dare you
Strike at me...
It’s been too long since you passed my way ..
Stick that brush
In a pot of sunshine and make a start
Go on I dare You ....."…

In our “Post Modernist” world of art and art critics there are those that disclaim much of what is deemed “High Art” today. Sometimes from the common viewer’s perspective the only thing that can be deemed high might be the price a museum curator applies to it or the state of mind the creator may have been in when making his art.
A statement I have seen on numerous occasions prompted my musing about this whole “what is art question”.
The statement being “Art generated by computer… Continue

My friends, who have several rescued horses, asked me to paint something to complement their ranch style decor . I found this image by an American artist and, right away, it took my breath away. This is my first serious effort. Although it is not my own original idea, I enjoyed the liberties this textured… Continue

i have said it before and i am going to say it again...probably the BEST compliment any Artist can receive is to KNOW they have somehow inspired another. i think about the wealth of Artists that have inspired and continue to inspire me...visual, musical, written. i think about the the times when i have been Blocked, Hibernating or Creatively Starving and the Artists that have pulled me through those times with their own Creativity. all of this to say, my own Delight when i awoke this morning… Continue

Has anybody read "The Art Of Murder" by Jose Carlos Somosa (available on Amazon too)?It's about human canvases and a very strange theory about art,in the very close future.You can read the reviews and share your opinion .I'm curious.

Recently i found in the school's trash an old book with these great yellow-sepia pages and i thought i could use it for collage pieces or as a background for paintings.
Two of the book's pages had some portraits of the writers -printed old fashion photos or a simple drawing of someone. Too bad i didnt take a photo of them before i paint them over… Continue
