I'm Bec. An artist and interior designer in Adelaide, South Australia.
How does one write a piece about themselves?
Well, usually they don’t, they hire someone to do it for them, but where is the fun in that?
I guess I should start with the obvious, I am an Artist, in case you hadn’t figured that part out already.
I have always dabbled in the arts, mainly in acrylics, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to the medium Resin, that my real passion for art truly kicked in. It was seriously like love at first sight; I couldn’t get enough of it. The start of my relationship with resin was very rocky, to say the least, but I didn’t give up, something kept drawing me back through all the failures and all the heartbreak. After 5 years, I can say that we are now in a good place with each other, we understand how each other works, we play to each other’s strengths and we grow together. Don’t get me wrong, we still argue from time to time, but isn’t that all relationships?
Hmm, what else? I am a wife, a mum to 4 gorgeous human babies and a mum to 2 crazy little fur babies. My family is my life! I am where I am today because of these amazing people, it was my husband and my kids who encouraged me and coaxed me out of the safety of my home studio and into the public eye, scary stuff. I am very grateful that they gave me the push I needed, not only did I grow as a person, I also grew into an Artist.
I will leave you with this…………. “Do what makes your heart smile”. Art for me, is the thing that makes my heart smile and sets my soul free.
The other thing is…………”Laugh at yourself, really hard, everyday”. Life is way to short to be serious all the time, I am always laughing at myself and being a goof. As you can see from my photo, there is no perfectly posed studio photo like I probably should have, instead, you get a collage of all the faces of me, most are not pretty but who cares, that’s the point, live your life and laugh hard at it.
Thanks for following my journey, much love and gratitude.
