I see ART everywhere - in nature, animals, people, food, objects, daily life, fleeting moments and memories. I want to capture everything and put it on canvas or walls with paint or through design; on paper in drawings or verse with pencils and crayon; in my camera through a shot. When I am creating, I am truly breathing, living in that 'sweet spot' - I believe that creativity in all it's forms is wonderful, expressive and freeing! I sign all my art 'DoBraShaM' - a special name created many years ago in honor of my biological children.
I was born and raised in South Africa and immigrated to the USA 15 years ago. I have worked in the Ministry, Education and the Corporate World, however, nothing gives me more joy and fulfillment than when I am creating. Einstein put it best when he said, 'true art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist', or when he said plainly, 'creativity is intelligence having fun.”
Aristotle said, 'the aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance'; or perhaps just simply put by many of us - 'Life without art is just 'eh''.
