An Artist’s Works

Several years ago, while I was still living in Hamilton (around 2010), I met and worked with a lovely lady who, at that time, was an aspiring artist. We worked as theatre attendants at the Hamilton Theatres and would often have a chinwag during our tea breaks. During one of those times, we talked about our dreams and aspirations. I mentioned I have always wanted to be a photographer, and she said that she was slowly following her dream to be an artist. One thing led to another and she asked if I would like to take photos of her artwork. I was thrilled to have been asked, so of course I said yes.

So one weekend, I went over to her place and took photos of her artwork, and here they are!

As you can see in the last image, the artist I’m referring to is the inspiring Helen FrostI remember her telling me that it took her at least two years to get her business / artwork going. I’ve held on to that statement for many many years. She may not know it but she, and other fellow artists and photographers I’ve met on my journey, have inspired me so much. They have given me the courage and strength to follow my dreams.

Anyway, if you would like to see more of Helen’s artwork (or have one commissioned), you can go to her website, and/or follow her on Facebook She does amazing ceramic work (I love her kingfisher feathers). If you’re in the New Plymouth area, some of her ceramic feathers can be purchased at Kina NZ Design.

That's not exactly a flattering image. Eh! Anyway, when I'm not taking photos, I do acrylic painting or write about my adventures (and misadventures) in this wonderful journey called life. :)
