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.
- 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.
