I'm not usually one for clip art but sometimes its too hot to do anything but sit in front of photoshop and make something political. I had visions of paste ups and stencils and printable matchbox covers and t shirts. Whether or not I actually get there is another thing all together but here it is ... my first (potential) foray into a whole new world...
Its positively thrilling to be stepping out in the world with my dear buddy Jaclyn...
Perhaps this thing had been growing since our days in the sculpture room at Chisholm, or the shared trepidation of painting class - Would this picture work? Would we know if it did? Would anyone tell you if it was a thing? Could you believe them if they did?
Somehow - we worked though all that delightful art school self reflection and found ourselves out in the world as artists... sure there were babies and music concerts and special birthdays along the way - but we found our paths converging (yes! a convergence) at a single, wonderfully portentous point.
We spoke of process, of the artist/mother, of learning, of community, of sharing magical moments making, flowing, growing into an Artful Life (it deserves capitals - yes?).
For me its about seeing... and thats pretty much my WHY. Seeing the world in a new way - and living artfully is a pretty fine way to do just that. And so - Brightly Arts was born. Jac and I will be teaching, facilitating and generally making messy fun all around the Mornington Peninsula to start - with visions of taking the art vlogging world by storm. Stay tuned...
extremely interesting things
I like to make things...paintings, stitched things, paper things and such.
