"Today I hope you have time to breathe.
to breathe slowly and with intention.
Today I hope you can see.
To look in the mirror and show how beautiful you really are
on the inside and the outside.
Today I hopy you can touch.
Be it fur, cloth, plant or skin. Be grateful.
Today I hope you can surround yourself with beautiful things that make you smile.
Your smile is beautiful." by Emma Ward
"I am a Wildflower" is my latest collection. Born out of the desire to return to a feeling of inner peace, and a feeling of contentment within my own body. Recently I took a one weeks internship at the Rockhampton Art Gallery, and explored artwork created by female artists. It was so inspirational, and I came back to the studio with a desire to make work close to my heart, it made me realise how pationate I am about Women's self esteem, how I feel about empowering the spirit, and the message I am sending to my children about natural beauty.
We all deserve to feel at peace with ourselves, and to live our best and most beautiful life. Its with great honour that I share this new series of artwork with you, and I hope it too brings joy to your heart.
