to support the little guy - small independent creative business’/artists.
Bit late but not too late cos I’m in NZ so I’m a day ahead of you UK folk. 😉
First Prompt - 10 Facts about me... 🐘My name is Rebecca and I’m a printmaker and painter. My art is inspired by New Zealand nature and colour. 🐘I’ve a background in primary education which informs a love to learn. Recently I’ve been exploring art therapy - for myself and also had opportunity to teach it. 🐘This is my fave selfie. Our overland truck pulled to the side of the road in Botswana to admire this magnificent bull elephant! We named him Gilbert. 🐘🐋 are my favourite animals. I have a thing for giant noble creatures. 🐘I love great story telling... being moved, inspired or transported through film, stories, plays, books, poetry, spoken word, comedy or narrative art. 🐘I believe books can be memories like the wallpaper of our childhood. My ultimate fave was The Faraway Tree series. I’d have given my right arm to climb the tree and hung with Moonface & Silky! 🐘My Mum’s Rice pudding is number one in the dessert dept for me (burnt around the edges just so) closely followed by Tiramisu. 😋
🐘 I deal with anxiety among some other invisible complex health stuff. It can be hard to talk about and make me appear inconsistent or distant while “managing.” Creative expression, nature, friends and laughter helps big time. 🐘’I’m embracing my inner quirk cos ‘Adulting’ can get a bit serious at times. Anything quirky, silly, nonsensical that causes fun, frivolity, dreaming or hilarity is lapped up by me. 🐘 Beautiful Maori proverb: “He aha te mea nui? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.” What’s the greatest thing? People , people, people. 💗
