Creating has always brought me pleasure, and when I retired I went to painting classes.
Exploring different techniques encouraged me to experiment.
I love colour, a sense of the quirky, work mostly in acrylics, have no particular style but lean towards abstract style at the moment.
I love the process of creating art and if something complete comes out of the process I consider it a bonus.
I have exhibited many times with fellow artists & have sold several works.
'A Call to Action - Looming Extinction'
Artist: Camellia Ahrens
Description: [Acrylic on Canvas]
The sea creatures appeared unintentionally, so I decided it was a worthy subject to pursue. To risk damaging the precious environment under the sea would be catastrophic for all humanity.
Connection to Roy: Roy taught both our sons at Havelock North High School, and was a huge influence on them both.
I loved his knowledge, enthusiasm and sheer delight when he talked about all art and artists. I was delighted when he chose one of my art pieces for the CANdid-50 exhibition which he curated for the CAN gallery in Napier.
I was amused when he gave a floor talk on the chosen works and said of mine
"The artist is not quite sure where they are going but they are certainly enjoying the journey.” So true!
