Natures Art Melbourne a sustainable one woman business. CELEBRATION OF AUSTRALIA eco-friendly, organic, naturally sourced creations.
I am social worker, tailor, creative soul, woman, Austrian living in Australia.
I am in love with life even though life & death hit me hard lately.
In the year 2000 I traveled Australia on my own and met a push bike rider in the middle of freaking now where and my whole life turned upside down.
6 month later I migrated to Australia and asked the universe: "What is my path here in this red continent?"
The answer was simple -
"Walk the earth gently as she is your mother"
"Honor the land - slow down and see the abundance there is"
"Follow your heart & intuition and simply create"
...I have the eye to see, I have the hands to create.
Self taught creativity knows no limits.
So we went walkabout every winter in Australia's Outback (me & the bike rider - a truly special man, my husband) to slow down, to walk the land, to reconnect and to start to see and receive gifts from Nature.
In 2012 we fell in love with a place in SW Queensland, which we enjoyed for a few years and which is my winter retreat now.
My lover, soul mate & husband headed back to the light in March 2016. Seven years of depression got to heavy to bear, suicide was his way of saying "I have gone as far as I can". A brave act of love to himself and me. The roller coaster of grieve will be with me for a while as there is no short cut to that. I will walk out of this wise and stronger and live a joyous life ... I promised him that.
My 3 months in the Outback are there to simply focus on working wood. In my search for stones I do not dig - Mother Earth offers much freely on the surface or other people leave remnants behind which are treasures for me.
Stones, wood and feathers collected with respect and worked with love by the same hands something rare in our world.
I do also buy stones in, but I love to start with rough rock and
allow the material to speak and the creativity to flow.
The work process is "ease & flow" that is what you will feel in my creations.
A precious thing missing in our world of success at any costs.
A secret shared with all creative souls out there:
- say it, sing it, write it, tell it to everyone:
"I am able to make a good living from what I love doing!"
Truly believe in yourself and follow your heart.
This made Natures Art Melbourne & me what we are today.
