Hi I’m Mardi
I love to draw, paint, Hand build, ie, using:- clay, wood and lots of other mediums. A self taught dabbler in art. Inspired by beauty, portraiture, photography, drawing, painting, fantasy and magic. Creating my own versions of images, or making up the picture as I proceed. Using water color pencils , pastels, ink, charcoal, acrylics and oils.
I am passionate about getting out into the wilderness, as often as possible.
I live on the Gold Coast, QLD Australia, with my partner of almost 35 years. I have 2 grown daughters, and 1 grand daughter, and her lovely dad. Whom I see every few weeks, when I stay weekends with them.
I have dabbled in art. as long as I can remember. As a child my life took me with my family to many… sometimes very remote places, where with our very talented parents, 5 sisters, and 1 brother, we would entertain ourselves, in some extraordinary activities,. Music, Swimming, Climbing Mountains. Dancing, Singing Drawing characters, in the dust, telling stories, creating the scenarios, and acting them out. making it all up as we went along. Were some of these. Mixing coloured clays, to make Our paintings, and models.
My interests are World cultures, religeons and languages.
My father spoke seven Languages, fluently, and would often speak to us in any one of them.
We Learnt how to survive in these remote areas, Being responsible for ourselves, each other, and our enviroment.
