For as long as I can remember, I have always loved art... I often get asked 'what inspires me?' When I was growing up...we made our own fun. We didn't go on expensive holidays or theme parks, our holidays were spent camping or we would rent an old 'beach' house and play on the muddy tidal flats, pumping yabbies for fishing. As a family we would go for Sunday drives....we might go for a bush walk, search under logs for 'critters', picnic in the middle of 'no where', or go for a cool swim in a rock pool in the mountains. When I first started painting, I mainly painted the beautiful places that my husband and I tavelled to on our many camping journerys. Now that I have my 2 beautiful girls...I am sharing the beauty of the outdoors with them, and they now feature quite often in my artwork. I have been told by many people, that my artwork brings back childhood memories for them, and I hope that my artwork reminds you of a special memory too.

'Childscapes' Opening Night


'Myself' & artist 'Michelle Caitens'(left)
Here's a few photos from my 'opening' night for 'Childscapes'. It was a great night...there would have been over 100 people attending...great support!! For some reason...everyone kept on saying 'that I was younger than what they were expecting'...and 'that they were very surprised that this was my 1st Solo Art Exhibition'. I suppose it must seem like I've been around for sometime, but with having a young family, it takes a while to put together a new body of artwork for a solo exhibition. Preparing for this exhibition has been a busy 2 years, especially the last 12 months...I have either had a paint brush in my hand or I've been stuck at the computer, doing 'promo' stuff. I think I need a manager!
