SHAYNA FERNANDO - THE CREATOR
Art is powerful, magical - capable of inspiring and changing a person’s life. I don’t have an almighty goal. There is no single thing I am limited to create, and I think that’s okay. There is so much beauty in the little things that surround us every day, and I feel privileged to be able to draw inspiration from those, capturing just a little bit of that unknowing feeling in my work. It can be anything. Something as simple as a line from a book, a dream I woke up from, a summer time raindrop falling on my eyelashes, a bunch of freshly picked lavender bound with a bow on my bedside table, or the flitting tail of a friendly willie wagtail who always stops by at precisely the right moment. It can be the moon of any shape, the sky of any colour. It can be a rickety chair in an antique store or a humble, crumpled paper bag. Memories. Moments. I create and recreate little things and I call them my art. I want to create art like I breathe – I want it to be joyful. It’s so easy to forget to have love in your heart for yourself, but art has a compelling way of reminding us how precious our lives are. I am still learning. I am still growing. My art is changing with me – and my heart with it.
