The Experience

Look at the world through the eyes of an artist:

Most influencing experiences: My grade 8 art teacher and a very supportive mother encouraged me to go to art school way back when. I’ve had an extensive career as a graphic designer and art director. In later years, further study and teaching art have allowed me to return to my first love of painting

Mostly fun I have is usually teaching in class. One fellow was quite a good artist but he used to match a colour he wanted with a separate tube of paint… quite expensive until he came to my class and learnt how to mix colours with the basic 4 + black and white. He was delighted. Funny!!! (Sharon Harper-Greentree)

Who are you, and what do you do? I am a retired Customer Service Manager who was inspired by my wife’s mosaic creations to take up this art form. I enjoy creating items with bright colours and unusual designs. I have mosaicked items such as a full size surfboard, chairs and many garden ornaments. I prefer to use recycled materials such as china, pebbles, mirror and broken ceramic tiles, although this is not always possible. I have been enjoying this art form now for about 14 years.

How to see like an artist:

Observe everythingThink of a theme, like an eye or a heart. Then see how many you can find in your surroundings throughout the day. In the knots of a tree, cracks in the sidewalk or shadows and the like.

Look closerPick up a leaf, a small Knotted twig, or a rock. Look closely at its patterns, shapes and colours

Take note of your emotions – How are you feeling today? What colour would describe your mood?

Experiment and experience – Eat something different, try something new

Explore – go to all those places you say you will but never have. Go for a walk, visit a Museum or new café

Reflect – Make a note of the beautiful, the gentle, the magical, and ask why?
