"The Miracle" By Monika Welch
Kia Ora to all who land at the MONIKA WELCH art website. Welcome!
MONIKA WELCH is a quirky contemporary NZ artist interested in colourful woman figures, surrealism, imaginative stories, and ALL things ZANY! She even likes a bit of 'strange' and disturbing!!
This is my PASSION-PAGE, a celebration to the art and my addiction to it.
It makes my body ache, takes up so much time,
causes me to make a HUGE mess and yet ....
I adore it!!
It fills my heart and my spirit and there is no one but ME to contend with!
(And sometimes thats not easy either LOL!!!)
I am self-taught but inspired by those who have gone before me
but moreso, those who still live and breathe the art.
I am especially interested in carrying on the artistic cause.
It helps women to heal, to relax, to escape from bizzy mother-filled lives.
It can show us who and what we are....who we want to be.
To inspire others to take up their choice of art/craft
is almost fundamental to my own development.
Therefore, during the week I am also a teacher. My main point is to introduce creativity through PLAY and exploring alternate ideas. I teach adult women, and kids or teens doing their NCEA exams.
I am also available for ART- QUIRK WORKSHOPS,(mixed media and collage) so please email me if you want to find out about these.
I can come to YOUR town.
I am also a singer/songwriter,writer and mother of 5 l'il darlin's..... (some bigger than the others)
AND, not to be forgotten....
...... wee wiffy of one hunk of burnin' love!
I also love to dance and paddle in an outrigger canoe. In NZ we call it Waka ama.
I love weird toys and dolls, chicken (cooked in any fashion), pinot noir.............
and interesting and odd clothing and fabrics.
