About Me

My photo
‘Painting for me is the freedom to create and there is always something new to learn. Mistakes made, usually turn out to be the best part of the painting because it is unexpected. Never let yourself get bored.’

The Annual Walk of Inspiration 2010 Charity Auction

Each year my brother organises a charity walk through the Integrated Martial Arts Club. This fundraiser is held on the beach at Hervey Bay to raise money for the Humanity Healing Foundation. After the walk there is an auction of donated goods to also raise funds. I donated a drawing for this auction & hope to do so each year. All up, the walk & auction went well with fantastic local support. A great day!!

Jallas Cafe

I have a whole wall to display my paintings at Jalla's Cafe at Woodford. Great little cafe - yummy food & live entertainment from 1pm on Saturdays. I went in early Friday morning with a ute load of paintings to hang (with help thank goodness) a 5 1/2 month old and a 2 year old. It was a bit of a juggle but it all went smoothly (probably took twice as long as it normally would..ha!). I think that they will be there for 6 weeks, I have to double check on that - it will be great to get some feedback and even better if it encourages sales!!

Back Again!

I disappeared for a while, all for a good reason. I created for the second time, my most rewarding and precious masterpiece I could ever imagine creating...my 2nd little baby girl....Indigo. I have been very busy learning to juggle two beautiful little girls along with the normalities of day to day duties as well as the busy festive season. I still have not touched on any painting since getting home from the hospital in October. I did sketch up a picture from a photograph of my first child while in hospital but nothing since then.
I have a photo of me painting for the Woodford Art Competition a week before giving birth. I finished it just in time... whew! Thank you to my wonderful friends and family that ran around for me to frame and deliver it to and from the show while I was in hospital.

2010 WILL be a creative year...a slow start but I know I will build up momentum and inspiration as the year progresses (and when I feel a little less sleep deprived)  - my 2 year old is putting me to shame at the moment and getting more art completed than her mother... ha!
