Creative workshop 2018

I am an artist and illustrator from Colombia. I live in Figtree area ,I have 2 kids and enjoy to teach so much, I have background in graphic and interior design.
I believe as an artist, that we have our own way to create and enjoy our creations when they are based on our own interests and abilities.  Art is one of the best ways to explore, learn and create.  The children, for instance, can develop a wide sort of skills that are very important for their life.  Art can develop their creativity, confidence, problem-solving, perseverance, concentration, non-verbal communication, self-expression, physical and cognitive skills.  One of the best thinks of Art is that is a not ended process, the children are participating in an ongoing activity and they can be in charge of their own creation.

A little bit about my.

My friends call me Pala,
I was born in Colombia, where I worked designing
and making jewellery and accessories.
My way to communicate is for drawing.
Now I live in Australia and and I'm  graphic design and artist
All this time I have been
on a quest to find in art and illustrations a medium
to express my very own view of the reality. 
I am collector of papers, which I used to experiment with new techniques, especially collage.

Un poco acerca de mi.
Mi amigos me llaman Pala.
Naci en Colombia, donde trabaje diseño y produccion de joyeria y accesorios.
Ahora vivo en Australia,  donde estuve en busqueda del arte y la ilustracion como un medio para expresarme.
Soy recolectora y coleccionista de papeles y me encanta experimentar nuevas tecnicas, pero mi especialidad es el collage.
Espero que les guste lo que hago.

The Circus of the bird

The Circus of Birds is a playful collection of collages created from paper and other mixed media, inspired by the spontaneous acrobatics of free city birds as they fly by my window, performing and playing. The birds make me laugh. They fly in my head and my spirit, inviting me to join them. The Circus of Birds is the story of our flights together.

Trusting my soul collection

“Trusting my Soul”.
August 2 – 15 2007. Sydney.
The Archetype Gallery. Contemporary Art.

This exhibition talks about the magic inherent in my, your, our selves, about the many feelings that often get stack in my soul and can’t fly free. Why does it seem so scary to jump off the cliff? There is a see of infinite possibilities awaiting. They say it’s not so hard as it seems, well it is for me… but today for the first time in my life, I feel like… jumping no matter what I feel like…trusting my soul.

Ecofrienly art

I am been working in a project for 2 years 
doing art the best way to be nice with the EARTH.

I use the base matboard from my workspace (framing shop), and I try to collect cans the acrylic painting the people left in front or the house, recycled painting and I clean my stick with all rugs and I dont use water for clean.

How I do it?

Collecting paint with a thin stick and the letting the paint drip. This works very well with paints that flows like honey, such acrylic paints, I guide the fluid.   It really is nice for touch when is dry. You can see me video how is.
