Last few days to see the show!! Check it out - Shona says it is one of the best shows in the gallery!
Find us in the new hip and cool artist studios at CSpace - King Edward School.
Artist Statement regarding the show:
Hope, trust, love, desire, compassion - all have a complexity as they weave and sometimes share space with - despair, distrust, hate, repulsion and envy. The anatomical heart, with its beating, its blood, its valves and pathways, represent our emotions more accurately then any simple 2D cartoon heart.
The balloons, flowers, cupcakes, rabbits and birds - these all represent my belief in goodness, in trust, in beauty. I tie my heart to these uplifting thoughts and feelings. I know there is darkness and destruction in this world, but I choose to feel and focus on the beauty. It doesn’t mean, I don’t feel compassion and sadness - my heart is there, beating and dripping with blood when I see injustice. But like a child, I tie my heart to the balloons.
I have been working with beeswax and resin, photo transfer, ink & calligraphy pen, oil paints and oil pastels. Lots of layers, drawing and colours. Here is a little breakdown of my process.

Art is the...
great connector of people, places and dreams. It speaks the language of the heart when it is authentic and created from an open and non-judgemental space. It is passionate pursuit of creation with a playful mind.
