How I Package A Stretched Canvas Art Piece Abstract Art

Sending art through the post or a courier is nothing to take lightly. The last thing I want to hear is that your treasured purchase arrived to your place in a damaged condition. That is a little heartbreaking to think about, and has never happened to be so - touch wood! When selling art, the packing process has to be considered carefully. There is a lot that goes into protecting an art piece when going through the courier system. We can never fully predict what trials and tribulations it will encounter along the way.  I just thought I would take...

5 Ways Art Can Transform Your Home And Your Heart

5 Ways Art Can Transform Your Home And Your Heart

  Your home is a reflection of you—your space to express your personality. The art you choose to hang on your walls will affect the atmosphere of your home and the energy that will radiate into every aspect of your life.  When we have young children, we may not spend a lot of time or money thinking about how to decorate our space. However once they become teenagers and no longer going to trample on the couch and throw food at the walls, (well hopefully) then it's a chance to really consider the environment we live in.

That being said, if you have any desire at all to paint, draw, collage,...

Australian Abstract Landscape  | Journey To Tomorrow

Last November I held my second open studio. Do you remember? I adore any opportunity to reawaken your inner creative. So at my Open Studio, I had a canvas there for anyone and everyone to have a play on. I set it out with paint pens, crayons etc.  Some people were drawn to it like a duck to water, (it was a large canvas so very inviting), and some avoided it and then there were a few tentative souls who edged past their inner critic and had a play.  It is such and exciting experience to witness the shift from "I...

Learning To Express Myself - A Journey Of Self Discovery

Learning To Express Myself - A Journey Of Self Discovery

I have to be honest with you.  I still struggle to express myself. Sometimes.  If you don't know my story I grew up painfully shy. Too scared to speak up in class, always the one sitting quiet as a mouse. Even with my good friends I would sit back and let them do the talking. I may have had a knack for picking friends that talked a lot. Which brought me to a few years ago, when I actually realised how much I wasn't speaking up. How shut down I felt. I mean, I wasn't that painfully shy person at...
