I have been a creative person my whole life. I have enjoyed scrapbooking, quilting, interior decorating and cooking.
But in 2012, something changed. I had overwhelming desire to expand this creativity and do something different, something that didn't have rules.
I discovered Art Journalling on Youtube and found that I loved the idea of creating just for the sake of creating. It was very liberating. Since then I have grown and expanded my knowledge across a large range of media and techniques. It changes your life irrevocably the minute you commence.
I began to teach Art Journalling online at my YouTube channel, Missladypetal Creations where I have a number of teaching videos. I am studying Arts Psychotherapy at Ikon Institute at the moment so I cannot upload as many videos whilst i'm studying as I'm a full time student and work part time.
Now I work at Canefields Clubhouse as an art tutor where my background as an Arts Therapist helps me connect and assist members to achieve their goals in life. I'm currently also employed there as an NDIS Support Co-ordinator, and I am working on the Quality Assurance project.
I began painting seriously 2012. I started with watercolours as my father was a well known watercolour artist when I was a girl and it's something I was familiar with. But, I quickly found out that watercolours just weren't enough for me and I wanted, needed, to experiment with a bunch of different ideas to express what I wanted to convey.
I have a number of my fine art works in my online store. They are available for purchase and I do package and ship the works that do not have sticks on them. I'm also available for commissions so shoot me an email: [email protected] for any enquiries.
