ART classes in SINGAPORE, London, Paris, sydney, New Zealand
PRACTISING MEDIA —
Greetings, Bonjour, Hola,
I am truly delighted that you are visiting my site and exploring some of my art work. Thank you.
By way of an introduction let me tell you a little about myself - New Zealander by birth, French through marriage and a Global Traveller through right of long years spent wandering the proverbial road. I have passed all of my adult life chasing dreams, jobs and love throughout Europe, Asia Pacific and South America.
After a marvellously mad and meandering career in international communications working in global advertising agencies, running a small not-for-profit marketing consultancy and working for the UN in Geneva, I metamorphosed into a wife and full-time mother.
Midlife crises cliches of the dramatic tug-of-war between a return to corporate life and a follow-one's-passions and be a broke-but-happy artiste (with an 'e') were decided relatively simply following a rather dramatic health scare that urged me (with a carpe-diem-esque calling) to take a risk and concentrate on my twin passions of writing and drawing.
My artistic life is a sideways shuffle and a segue to a completely new focus and rhythm, and one where I am finding a deep (and unexpected) sense of flow and contentment.
I have been blessed to have spent much time exploring the different cultures and peoples of far flung communities.
Now I am trying to bring to life the peoples and stories from some of those places through my art - shining a spotlight on the elderly people and the rich and complex lives they have lived.
