Mindful Painting

Mindful Painting

Still life painting, stories of personal belongings






4 - 6




Do you have an object that you just can’t part with?

It might be that thing sitting on the top shelf, the back of the cupboard, by the front door, or in a box under your bed. You may value this thing greatly. Or, perhaps you can’t stand to look at this item… but nor can you throw it out.

During this creative event, we will be considering the connection we have to different objects in our lives. Please come with one or two objects, that have personal significance to you. Together we will explore the connections we have to these items, and spend time in the experience of mindful painting, creating our own personal still life works.

This creative experience is suitable for all levels of painters.

After graduating from UNSW Art & Design (COFA), I've spent the last 15 years working as a visual artist and graphic designer. I work in gouache a bright lurid medium of pure pigment. It’s fast drying and colours can easily be layered. It forces you move quickly and not labour too long with your art making. By day I stare at a computer screen and push pixels around. Painting is analogue and fuzzy, there is no undo button. I draw diverse inspiration from geek culture, abstract and pop Australiana as well as classic and contemporary Japanese art making.
