“It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and
gives you a deeper meaning.”
Schedule yourself a regular date for self care art on Thursdays!
Why? The world is sometimes chaotic, and we need down time to soothe and nourish our souls. Says us, and David Hockney:
There’s something art can do
for the soul that you can’t really put into words.”
~ David Hockney

Why Tangerine Meg (yours truly)?
I’m a practising artist now, and lucky me went to art lessons with SA Art World legend, beloved Ruth Tuck, from the age of 7! She invited me to help with the younger students when I was in late secondary school. For the next 10-ish years I attended Ruth’s adult classes, while assisting and later teaching the younger kids.
Thanks to the mentorship of Ruth and her teachers, an appreciation of garden variety beauty and a love of glorious colour was awakened from a young age, along with a lifetime commitment to painting and drawing practise.
And I’ve studied Graphic Design. Twice.
The first I completed, a Bachelor of Design (Visual Communication) which covered design principles beautifully yet was before computers were in every room of every building, let alone every pocket … After a change of pace and 2 boys – teaching for Ruth through almost all of it – I did the majority of an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design to learn to apply computer magic to my design skills… You can see why my art style is ‘graphic’!
I’ve had 2 solo art exhibitions – the first between the arrivals of my now adult sons and the second at Goolwa’s Old Police Station in 2016 – and too many group exhibitions to count! I work from South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, a friendly black cat my sunny studio companion.
I’d love to pass on to you some of the learnings and enjoyment I’ve been lucky enough to experience!
