Well..... here it goes. My first post in my blog. It is amazing to me that for some reason I want to start a blog. I am by nature a visual person and words are really not my strength. Nevertheless, I have this need to share information and ideas and particularly with the community around where I live on the Gold Coast. I have noticed over the last 10 years of living here, in a city famous for beautiful weather and outdoor activities, an amazing development in visual arts around the coast and it's so exciting to see a stronger community growing. In my own way, I would like to be part of this growth and help nurture the already growing community.
So, this leads me to explain how I envision this blog. There are so many interesting art events occurring such as art workshops, life drawing sessions, exhibitions, retreats and more on the Coast, in Brisbane and further afield. I have also come across loads of interesting art training videos or podcasts that can enrich our creative lives. As visual artists we can spend so much time alone, and having support, ideas and a community can make such a difference to helping us stay motivated and continue creating, I intend to post or pass on articles, videos and links to hopefully help your day in the studio or at your day job when you really wish you were at home creating. I will also post my Long Pose Life Drawing Newsletters which go out to my students. These too have information on what’s going on that might interest. I would also like to share my experiences of workshops that you might want to do in the future.
Watch this space and enjoy!
