I have created this artwork using archival ink pens on art paper and pastel colours for the background. The black line drawing of the dancer in the foreground against the vivid colours in the background give her a sense of floating. I was inspired by mindfulness and symbolism in this work, which is reflected in the decorative body art designs.
This artwork comes framed and is currently exhibited at the “Nearly Naked & Nude” exhibition, Hallidays Point Gallery.
This diffuser necklace is wonderful to lift your spirit. Just apply 1-3 drops of your favorite essential oil onto the part that doesn’t touch the skin and you’re ready to go. You can refresh the scent as needed. The scent will diffuse with the warmth of your skin.
Mindfulness, in its different forms, has been a part of most of my life.
My art is about going with the flow, “one stroke at a time”. It’s about being in the moment, being curious about the outcome. What I enjoy about this way of working is that it is fun and full of surprises. It means, there are no mistakes. If something unexpected happens in my creation, or something I think should have been different, I can use it to my advantage and create something around and with that so-called mistake. It’s fun and relaxing, as nothing can go wrong.
One style of my artworks is strongly inspired by Zentangle. I have been fortunate to have had private sessions with a Certified Zentangle Instructor in Sydney, that have helped progress my work.
The other influence has been June Rollins Alcohol Ink Dreamscapes. Alcohol Ink washeson non-porous surfaces lend themselves to intuitive, spontaneous work. The inks have a way of flowing, blending and blooming in unexpected ways which give inspiration to the subject matter of the painting. I’m also participating in alcohol ink workshops by a leading local artist.
