Artwork by Amanda Rozanski
I’m a single mum of two who in all honesty only recently discovered a love for painting. I’ve always been into art, but it wasn’t until a few months after separation that I woke up and had the urge to just paint and create.
Art has become a kind of therapy for me, not just painting, but even just sitting down and mixing colours, the smell and texture of oil paints is something I could quite happily get lost in for hours, challenges for me are due to no real training, learning how to use various products through trial and error.
I find it difficult at times to get the vision that’s in my head onto the canvas, but always enjoy the process of trying!
I’m wanting to learn more how to create depth and atmosphere. The old masters Academy seems like the perfect fit!
I love the idea of being to learn from great artists like they’re still here, in an age where so much of our lives is on a screen, we need to make sure the ability to create beautiful art that tells a story and can be passed down the generations as a physical piece not just an image on a screen is not lost.
I would love to win so I can become better and feel more confident to send my art out into the world to be enjoyed, as to why you should vote for me, well you have nothing to lose by doing so, but you will help someone achieve a dream, and that’s got to be something to feel good about!
