Purling My Way to Peace
I have always loved creativity. As a child I did all kinds of strange activities, all in the name of art: from blue-tack blob sculptures to glittery cards, my weird creations littered the house and I was always so proud to present my new scribbled masterpiece in a gallery framed by magnets: the family fridge. Once my mum even found me dabbling in interior design, doodling along the wall with a chubby fist full of crayons. Needless to say, she didn’t hire my services again.
In Pursuit of Painting: My Watercolour World
Picture a piece of paper. It lies before you blank, barren and untouched, but watermarked faintly with potential. Pick up the paintbrush. Lower it, poised with purpose towards the paper and touch. Puddled pigment blossoms from the brush, rippling into rivulets of liquid lace. Welcome to watercolour.
A Tale of an Artist and Two Pairs of Scissors
I cannot remember a time when I have not loved art; it has been a constant, immovable companion throughout my life, whether through painting or drawing. Art is exciting and passionate, but also incredibly relaxing. It brings me peace with each painting. With a small fistful of crayons or pencils I would scribble intently, proud to present a doodled masterpiece in a gallery framed by magnets: the family fridge. As a child, I fashioned a paper crown of creativity for myself and I have worn it ever since. Years have trickled through the hourglass and I have studied painting and drawing tirelessly, becoming well versed in their languages: the music of watercolour, a melody of trickling, rippling water in aquarelle and the soft percussion of pencil, a whispered tap upon paper.
