"The supreme accomplishment is to blur the line between
work and play"Arnold Toynbee.
I love my painting - it's something I have always done. When I was a little girl of 5 years old; I received a colouring book and crayons from my parents and my art career was launched. First thing I did was to colour the skin on the people. Well there was no skin tone in the box of crayons I received so I began using a combination of brown, orange, red and then a hard pressing of a white crayon on top and wa la! There you have it - skin. This was a very labour intensive process because there was lots of pressing and blending involved to get that skin tone. But I can remember that moment as clear as if it was yesterday. This was when I knew I wanted to be an artist.
It is all I have ever wanted to be.
There is a lot of work involved in being an artist but for me it is play.
