Sunshine Art from the Heart.
Sunshine is a Lao artist who was born in London, United Kingdom.
Since she was a little girl she has always been creative and has been heavily inspired by her father whom is also an artist. As she grew up in the family home she was always surrounded by her father´s work. She quotes "He is a man of few words but I could always understand and connect with him through his brush strokes on canvas".
Whilst living in England she had always been very active in her art at school but it was n´t until she moved to Spain that she really felt her creativity flow.
She love´s to work with a variety of materials, some of these include acrylic paints, oil paints, Swarovoski crystals, 24 karat gold leaf, silks, textiles, wooden beads, tiles for mosaic art etc. She has a continuous passion to create and to discover new ways in which to let her ideas express itself.
Sunshine first started painting Mandalas 8 years ago after seeing it printed on a t-shirt at a festival. She wanted to know more about what this symbol meant and found out that Mandalas are used in many cultures as a tool to get on contact with your soul. For Sunshine painting mandalas has helped her get in contact with her self and her true passion.
Depending on the size of one painting it can can take up to from 1 - 4 months to complete because of the vast detail and love involved.
Each painting is a journey of self growth. When she starts new pieces on a blank canvas and sees what unfolds she finds herself in a beautiful and rewarding process.
She quotes, "when I work on my art without any distractions, I am in a state of total freedom and happiness".
Her art work is in many collections throughout many countries of Europe, Asia and America.
She got her artist name Sunshine from her partner when they first met as this was they way she made him feel and she hopes that this is what you feel when viewing her art work.
