I started painting less than 2 years ago, but have always wanted to try it, being quite creative, and my inspiration is my love of nature and the outdoors. My art piece that I have called ‘Dreams’, is inspired by a visit to Australia in my younger years and admiration of Aboriginal Art. There are several meaningful symbols incorporated in my piece, which include stars, people, a meeting place and water. This piece is my first try in an Aboriginal style, which I really enjoyed doing, and so have been continuing to work on other styles of Aboriginal Art at the moment. Painting is a new passion of mine, my escape. A way to express myself and my love of our beautiful, natural world we live in!
