SALA - 2022 - 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐲 𝐅𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐚

Join me in some colour-filled fun, as we draw inspiration from Frida Kahlo to create a beautiful flowery piece of art.  This workshop is about learning to mix and blend colours on the canvas (or surface that you're working on) to get your desired affects. It's also about making mistakes a part of the piece and letting yourself be free to play with colour, without constraints of seeking perfection. To me, it is more important to enjoy the creative process, than it is to get a perfect piece at the end. Honestly, tackle your art with love and joy. That is what will shine through in the end result.

EVENTS

Getting out and about in the community

This is where I get out and about in the community, mingling, connecting, networking, workshopping, showcasing and putting myself and my work out into the big, bad, scary world. I love sharing my art. I love showing other how I go about creating my art. I love giving other tips and hints, so they too can get creative and I love being able to do creative things in different places.

PROJECTION ART

August 2022

Check out the amazing projection art spectacular "Constellations" that is on show across SA throughout August 2022. I have contributing substantially to the Port Pirie and Barmera Projections. Both these little sci-fi animations are bright, colour, fun, quirky and a great showcase of what can be done with a great team of artists, animators, writers, voice artists and more. I absolutely love these creations and the way that my characters, props and backgrounds have been brought to life to share the stories by Alysha Herrmann (Port Pirie) and Michael Mills (Barmera). These little animations were seriously my favourite projects to work on, to date.

Karoonda Silo Art

2022

This year, I've joined the wonderful artists of the Mallee to showcase a couple of my artworks on the Karoonda Silos. 
These pieces are in response to the theme of this year's SALA event: Stop and Smell the Roses.  
My pieces are titled: "I am thankful for the gifts passed down from my ancestors", and 2nd piece is "I am thankful for the gift of motherhood". I have drawn from previously works to recreate these pieces to show the things that are most important to me. My family and my role as a mother.

Pianos in Public Spaces

2021

In 2021 the Berri Barmera Council commissioned me to work with community groups and individuals to give new life to 4 pianos that would be placed around the community for people to enjoy and play.  I worked with the Riverland Special School, Headspace Berri's HERO group and my son to paint and mosaic the pianos, showcasing different stories, themes and topics that were important to the individuals and groups involved in the project and to the community in which the pieces are now placed.  My favourite piece is the mosaic piece which my son designed and did a lot of the mosaic work. It sits outside the Berri Visitor Information Centre and is well used and loved. I love it mostly because it's my son's creation and it is beautiful.
