About

I want to bring more colour into the world!

HI there! So you would like to know more about my shop? Awesome! Let's get started! You see, I wasnt always into painting. In fact, I have tried pretty much every other art and craft under the sun before I got into painting. Back in 2008 I was selling soy wax candles on Etsy, and I was doing mosaics. After that I experimented with felt jewellery, cushion covers and one of my most favourite things, photography. I still love photography! But painting... since I started painting I finally feel that I have found what I was looking for over all those years! 😊 I have been wanting to start painting for a while but I always thought that painting is very difficult to learn, and surely one needs a degree for that. When I finally Just Got Started I realised very quickly that the way I want to paint is not all that detailed and complex, it's more... intuitive.

I got started with acrylic paints, thinking that I would be moving on to oil paint quickly. (I'm very traditional at heart) But it turned out that acrylic paint suits me perfectly! I'm going to let you in on a little secret: with acrylics you can always ALWAYS paint over the top, change and mould the painting as much as you like. I really love that! Some of my paintings come together very quickly but most of them end up with multiple layers and lots of back and forth, stepping back, rethinking and letting the painting emerge over time. It's usually the flowers paintings that take longer to come together, the abstracts tend to be more quick and spontaneous. With the flower paintings I normally have a certain colour palette in mind that I want to put on the canvas, for example I might feel very inspired by bright green and magenta. Once I have started with those colours I inevitably end up with the whole spectrum of the rainbow 🌈 When I paint abstracts I don't think much, I purposely try to paint very quickly and avoid the mind trying to take over. I often use abstract painting to shift moods or process something that is on my mind. I find that painting is an amazing tool for transformation! I love inspiring others to try out painting without the need to produce something 'perfect".

All my paintings are originals, painted by me, in my backyard or living room in Adelaide, Australia 😊🎨
