Inspiring People

I wanted to do a special little post to introduce you to my very talented art teacher Sandra Temple.
Sandra is a very inspiring person and is an extremely talented award winning artist. Her love and knowledge of our natural world and it's inhabitants is amazing. Sandra is also a member of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society.
I had been admirer of Sandra's work for a very long time and am thrilled to be now taking classes with her.
Sandra is also a very accomplished and well known Body Art painter (not sure if that's what you call it but it's amazing) and has also illustrated several children's books which are just gorgeous.
Her artwork is just beautiful....
the detail is incredible.
To see them in real life...stunning! We have so much talent in our own backyard. It makes me feel really proud. You can see now why I am loving my classes and learning so much.
Sandra is having a huge Stocktake sale of some of her art work as she is running out of studio space...I can only dream lol!
You can visit Sandra's website HERE  and if you would like to learn to draw or paint she holds classes at Beenleigh and Munruben here in the Great South East of Qld.
I hope you enjoyed meeting this very inspiring lady.
Namaste and Blessings,
