People ask ‘why buy art?’ It’s simple. Does it speak to you inside?
My burnt out soul needed art for how it helped me feel.
I needed something to remind me of what passion, joy and love felt like. I needed something to remind me of who I could be if I put the fears and rationality aside. I needed something to show up each day for me when the distractions of life came by.
Art does this.
I buy art pieces that speak to me. Some I create specifically. I put them up where I can see them every day.
All of it is art to lift the soul.
I’m also asked ‘what art have you bought?’ Aka do I walk my talk?
These are three art pieces and what they’ve meant for me on my life’s journey. Do you related to the moments?
|The Bar Fly
I brought this sketch by Donald Friend, a very well established Australian Artist.
I loved its humor and lightness.
At the time it reminded me to invest in the life I wanted even if I could simply afford a sketch.

|From Where I am Standing
This oil painting is by Luke Wager, now an established Tasmanian Artist.
This totally describes how I felt, yearning for the space to fly.
It’s in my living room so I ‘live with’ this every day. It reminds me to keep believing particularly when I need it.

|Voluptuousness of the Soul
by Booth Aster.
This piece was created on request, ‘bespoke’ in art speak. The values and feelings wanted were richness, the sense of flowering and growing. The blue bra holding these wings is a touch of lightness as bras hold we girls up.Sculpture, 55 cm x 35cm x 15cm
What are you looking for in life? Is there part of you that wants to show up?
Who would you be if you could be anything?
These are the questions that got me started, these are the ones that lead me to Wings. This is we begin when I create art for you.
May you find the art that puts Wings on Your Soul.
