My life has always been about exploring deeply whatever calls me. I am wanting to be transformed in the process and so that I understand a little more what it means to be alive.
I am fascinated in the process of living and what it means to be a human being. Art seems to penetrate these questions very deeply.
My academic training has been in science and philosophy. Most of my life I have orientated myself around the spiritual tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
I am now in the fortunate situation of being able to find the time and space to explore art.
I am finding the tactile, messy unpredictable nature of printmaking and collage and mixed media totally enthralling. It takes me back to when I was a young girl cutting, pasting, constructing and messing to my heart content.
Now I am free to do this again. What joy!
Two years ago I studied the certificate of Creativity with the Learning Connection in Wellington. I loved every minute of it.
This year I have begun their Diploma of Creativity and travel down to Wellington frequently to do their block courses in particular modalities.
What I Learn
At the moment my paintings and pictures are my teachers as I learn about the impact of contrast, and colour and shape. I am learning the art of listening to my work and letting myself be guided by the meaning that wants to come through.
I am learning about myself through my art.
