I studied two years of a Fine Arts Painting degree. I transferred and completed a degree majoring in Anthropology (study of human culture) and English in Melbourne, and undertook a Graduate Diploma in Arts (Creative Writing). I have written essays and novels and poems, and i enjoy creating art that questions our existence.
Hi everyone, i hope you are ok. No, i genuinely hope you are ok. I have been working very hard but i thought this photo might bring a smile to your face. My owl’s name is Snowy. I got him while in hospital because i saw him in a shop and really wanted him. I always thought a bird on my shoulder might be helpful. Someone to whisper warm words of advice. My mum brought him to the hospital. I was so happy and grateful.
All my ward mates wanted to play with him. Hence why he is a bit grey, but it was totally worth it. Snowy distracted us from our pain at the hospital.
The message today is this, i know the world can be a harsh place. I know people can be harsh towards you. But see it as their learning experience in life, and disconnect from it. It is their problem to fix, not yours. Whatever it is you can find in your life today, that will give you peace and quiet, and a little happiness. Hold on to that. Whether it is your cup of home brewed tea, your good book or a teddy bear. Peace comes from within, it comes from letting go of the world, and letting go of the people who didn’t treat you right. Wish them well, one day they may be different. But you are the most important person in your life. Be a little happy today, breathe a little. Love yourself a little more. And remember God is there if you need to talk to him.
You know we all have those difficult and hard days, where nothing seems to go right and we just feel so down.
God is on our side, always. Even if you don’t believe in God-he believes in you. Even if he has to wait till the end of time for you to recover and regain your former strength, he has the patience to do so. We are all one and drawing him reminds us so.
God comforting me, and listening to the angels talking. Sometimes i hear a group of angels talking to me in my head. God is saying Hey it’s ok
Hey everyone, i hope you are all well ! It is a rainy day here, even though we are in the midst of Summer. It is a really cool day. I hope you are all doing ok.
This is a really small drawing, but somehow describes me very well. In motion to place a scroll on the shelf. I am always inbetween books and this describes it very well. There is a small bottle on the shelf. I don’t know if i meant it to be perfume, an incense burner, or a bottle of immortal elixir ! The scroll that has been unrolled in my hand feels as if i am lost in thought
I feel that playing the singing bowl calms me during the day. The sounds bring you back to meditation time. If you increase the volume you can hear the healing vibrations from the singing bowl. Sharing some good vibrations today. Wishing you peace, love and happiness and all the blessings 🙏🏼
This is a small but classic painting on a chinese silk fan. It is a mini self-portrait of drinking from the cup of immortality with a hidden soul ingredient and the apparition of God. Probably one of the more personal paintings i have done. I have not yet carried this fan outside with me but hope to one day.
This is a rather personal large drawing. I think most of my drawings are quite personal but this one is a self portrait. It describes my experience of acupuncture, which i go for and some of the meridian or spiritual energy points. There is a real sense of peace and tranquility in this drawing, almost like an anatomical drawing. I have added my own experience of spiritial energy points to this drawing
Thank you all for being here, you are all such a comfort to me. Sometimes i look through the drawings i do with difficult emotions. It is so very hard to talk about them but good to try, some artworks can’t really be explained well in words, i guess this is why they are artworks.
This artwork was done in winter, where i usually tend to have more melancholic and deeper reflection. It is a picture of God pulling me away from Death, whom i used to be close to. At least in this incarnation. We spent a lot of time in the underworld together. The moment of separation. While i am happy to be closer to God, everyone longs for their old friends.
I never really saw ghosts, more like demons and angels and deities. And many times when i was staying on my own, i saw a hooded figure in black by my bed. Not bad, just checking on me. It didn’t feel real until they brushed by the bed. The feel of the coarse black cloth of unearthly material was what really shook me to my senses. Apparently in a near death experience, my mother saw me reach out my hand and say someone was there. It was a golden figure of light. Someone was waiting to collect me. My energy moves so fast i always feel like a pile of stardust. I didn’t realise i could be collected. Until now. But thats a story for a different day.
This artwork is one of my abstracts. It features a silvery figure gazing into a black hole. The start of everything or the moving into the cosmos. It is surrounded by the veins of consciousness or the veins of the universe. Into the dark night of the soul we all step, then emerge. Done in Winter, time of contemplation.
