ABOUT ME

Finalist at Emerging Artists Exhibition - South Perth Council Sept 2017

First prize in the acrylic section -

50th annual Beverly Art Show

BEHIND THE BRUSH

After turning 50 I decided to try my hand at something new - so I located a photo I wanted to paint, bought a canvas, some acrylic paints and brushes, and began painting. 

 

Mr Peli was my first attempt.  At the time, I was impressed that the bird actually resembled a bird, although many have thought he is on water, not flying through the clouds as intended!  I have learned a great deal since Mr Peli days but  continue to learn and appreciate all that is art.

 

For me, I really enjoy the process of layering the background and generating depth to the picture.  Painting gives me great joy.  I love zoning into the moment – then stepping away some time later to realise that something has been created. When you can actually see dimensions in a two dimensional canvas there is that sensation of achievement. 

As the Art Director for Berry Art, and the Newsletter editor for ACAS (Alfred Cove Art Society), I am loving being surrounded by art and artists.

Best wishes,

Celeste
