I'm an Aussie Sheila who likes to paint and collage. I discovered art and painting in April 2009 - it is now my passion and brings me great joy and happiness through it's challenges and triumphs.

It's about the journey and not the destination.......the process in which my art is created, the experimenting, the joys, the challenges, the learning, the consulting with others is more important than the end product I have created....if the end product was more important I would want to achieve perfection and therefore nothing would be created.

Current Residence: Perth Western Australia
Favourite style of art: Traditional - painting and collage
MP3 player of choice: Ipod Shuffle
Shell of choice: Sand Dollar
Wallpaper of choice: flowery
Skin of choice: chocolate
Favourite cartoon character: Leila - Futurama
Personal Quote: Lack of confidence is an anchor to creativity.
I had an awesome trip to the States. I loved New York City esp the Met and MOMA and Central Park. Next I went to Boston then up to Squam Lake in New Hampshire for a great art workshop with Kelly Barton and Sarah Ahearn Bellemare. I stayed with :iconpaintonmyclothes: in Michigan and we went to ArtPrize in Grand Rapids - wow - it takes days to see all the fantastic art.  Looking forward to going again in two years time. ;)

Here are some of my sunset pics....

Hope you are doing ok.  I've been busy with my website, blog, facebook artist page, Pinterest and Instagram...……

as well going to mixed media art classes, taking online classes, painting my girls, mixed media landscapes and my layered acrylic paintings and having a lot of fun too.

Take care and happy creating.

Love and hugs,
