Occasionally I like to write, time constraints mean that Id far rather spend my time painting, or being artistic in a colourful messy way, but Ive just returned from an amazing art retreat in the stunningly beautiful Bali. Whilst there, Tracy Verdugo (who ran the retreat “Sacred Marks”) got us to sit for around 20 mins, and using inspiration bundles, we expressed a word, or a line of what ever the feeling we got was per piece. AS a result I found myself caught up in a wave of unstoppable expression (HA, I was worried I wouldnt even be able to form more than 4-5 lines!), that went for almost 4 pages!
Here is an example of a couple of my poems….

So loving the summer feeling so inspired by everything around me. Nothing like the healing powers of sun on the water , or the brilliant hues of sunset being saluted by the obligatory glass of wine.
Its been school holidays here so painting has been in short intense spurts, a day here 2 days there, so everything comes put at once .
so here are a few things i find really inspiring….things like TURQUOISE i LOVE…
peacock shades and beautiful imagery…..
turquoise colour within something spiritual……
and surf art…. love the vibrancy, the ocean energy…..
and lastly, my second ‘home’, Tairua, NZ…..
All of the paintings below are in progress…….
