I am therefore I create
Even though I’ve lots on my plate.
I am human so want to share
All the wonders of our lair.
I want to say ‘Look at this!’, ‘Look at this!’.
‘Can you see, can you see how sublime?’
Just as well I draw and paint nature’s design
Instead of describing it in rhyme!

G’Day from WA (Western Australia), welcome and I hope you find something here to brighten your day even if it’s just a laugh at my poem.

I’m Helen Lock and I’m now living a childhood dream of being an artist.  I’m not sure that I’ll ever feel that I’m not a fake but Steve Jobs said ‘Real artists ship’ so I’m shipping!  This blog is my first online ‘delivery’ and its creation has been a significant learning experience.  I know I have a lot more to learn.

I’m currently spending time drawing and painting the incredible designs and colours of the Western Australian flora. They captivate me and I’m driven to capture them – so I can relive magical moments.  I also want to share such moments in the hope that others enjoy them too.

I post:

  • Images and descriptions of my artworks and their inspiration
  • Some technical details about their creation
  • Related snippets about their and my environment, their life and mine
  • About artists, art and things that inspire and encourage me to keep going
  • Items to brighten my day and hopefully yours.

I’m not brilliant at routine – life keeps happening – so I haven’t committed to posting to a schedule.  I will attempt to post at least monthly and hopefully you’ll be able to take a break and escape to my world for a while and see something new.

    Helen, I looked at your blog twice and was not sure how to give you a comment until this morning when I looked at it again! I am just hopeless in computing and the modern IT technology?? your art which shows bright colors of nature! I love bright colors and I am a colorful person. I feel cheerful and lively when I see beautiful colors in the garden. Keep
    producing your art work and we all can enjoy them!
