My Creative Love – Oil Painting

While I love doing makeup, I also enjoy oil painting on canvas. Mixing colors to create new shades is my favorite thing.
Makeup adds another dimension of my creativity. Getting to know and engage with people is a great journey…one of life’s most rewarding experiences.

Roses Oil Painting from Christchurch Botanic Gardens

Whenever I have the opportunity to travel overseas, I make a point of visiting the Botanic Gardens of that particular country. I love to walk quietly among the plants, listening to the songbirds, touching the trees and above all, smelling the flowers; breathing in the beautiful assorted aromas and wondering from which flower each scent comes from.

During my holiday in Christchurch, New Zealand I visited the Botanic Gardens. I immediately fell in love with the rose garden; intoxicated by the many, beautiful scents that were carried on the breeze as I walked among the roses. I noticed the gardener who was tending the roses and his face looked so peaceful and content; which is no surprise as he is surrounded every day by such beauty.

My friend took many photographs of the roses that day and I selected one in particular to paint. Roses for me symbolise life, love and happiness.
