Georgina Herman, Sunshine Coast, Queensland Member Since March 2019 Artist Statement Art and music has surrounded me for most of my life; growing up with my musically and artistically talented family as a child, and even later discovering that my great-aunt was a well-known opera singer.
All three of my children have followed creative paths - one an artist, two musicians - yet I chose more 'left-brain' pursuits, such as bookkeeping, accounting, and office management, having a love for Maths and English.
Deep within, though, I always held the desire that one day I would also travel down a more creative path ..... and finally, in Jan 2017, I took the plunge into watercolours to paint the view from the back deck of the home I had moved to.
A few more smaller watercolour paintings came about, and then i was gifted some acrylic paint from two of my children. I moved into acrylics and have been having so much fun over the last 18 months with them, using some of the variety of techniques - painting, pouring, swiping, dipping, kissing, blowing etc - that I haven't yet ventured into oils, inks or resin (and am also a little hesitant to do so)..... but who knows what the future holds?
Please enjoy browsing my artwork and I hope some of the pieces bring you as much pleasure as they have brought to me creating them.
