In search of a creative outlet

I’ve been searching for a creative outlet all my live. I tried singing, playing a musical instrument, even painting. I didn’t have any talent. So I gave up trying until I saw someone drawing in colored pencil two years ago. I’ve been hooked ever since…

Whispers On The Breeze

Art has always softly called to me, it has whispered on the gentle breeze and beckoned me to come and immerse myself in the true beauty, joy and wonder it holds. My soul has always longed for me to be able to turn my attention to fully gain the skills and take the time to practice and learn how to express what needs to be completely brought to life in an artwork…

Inspired all day long

When I do something, I am really passionate about it. I like to create and learn new things but don’t have a creative career at the moment. I work in a hospital in an intensive care unit as a nursing assistant and am married with five children, two of whom have already moved out. Our family lives in an average sized Swedish town but we are originally from Hungary. My biggest interest is people: I am fascinated by the human body, the expressive faces and gestures, and understanding the interplay between body and soul. I like to have deep and long discussions with others…

The Elephant God

Hello, my name is Govind and I am from India.

I simply love to paint and draw. Even though I don’t have any art education, I try to improve my drawings by studying other artists’ works. Though there are many favorite artists, I am deeply inspired by Michelangelo and Van Gogh. I too want to paint realistic and proportionate paintings…

Smiling encounter

I have always loved the thought of doing art, but never had much confidence in myself as a person. One day Melissa the receptionist who I worked with told me to challenge myself. Well then and there she made me take a photo of her for me to do. The biggest thing I was scared of was doing teeth. Anyway thanks to her kind but firm encouragement I did it. I have done many since thankfully, but this one will always be important to me as it got me on the road to art discovery. However money being a big factor I have not got many books to help me improve further that is why I do like your site. I would love to be one of the lucky winners to keep improving myself.

Artwork and story by Suvarna Redelinghuys

Back on the artists path!

Dear Readers and generous voters, here is a little bit about myself:

My name is Suvarna, originally from South Africa, now living in New Zealand, Invercargill, where I am currently studying art. I gave up art as a young girl, because of the influence of my parents and other events as a teenager. It has taken me 22 years to finally find my way back onto the artists’ path. I find myself awakening in so many wonderful creative ways and it truly is a blissful, though challenging experience and always exciting! …

I will Honor the vote you will attribute to me :-)

Hello,

My name is Nathalie Noirette and I am from Mauritius. I am a designer, artist painter and an amateur photographer.

I love drawing since childhood. As many among us, I had a dream of making a living with my arts when I was studying at school and while painting I feel in connection with an invisible force from above until now. I let myself driven by this beautiful force and when the painting is finished, the subject reveals itself. Arts is a way to understand myself and share to others these perception (my personal point of view)…
