Welcome to ‘Upcycle That Art’.
Recycled, upcycled and new art projects are often blogged about here, along with details of the creative process.
As Kaishin(Helen) often says, “it is all about the process”. To observe, interact, be at one with the elements and something very unique may happen before your very eyes. You may surprise yourself.
Kaishin has been a painter and artist much of her life working in many different medias, often combining them.
Acrylic and Watercolor painting, small to large, landscapes and abstract
Collage using many medias together
Textiles – combining paper and cloth by sewing and with adhesives
Nature Art, Land Art, Ecology Art, tree branches, tumbleweeds, leaves, combined with textiles and more.
SoulCollage(r) Facilitator – since 2012 – workshops and individual sessions
Raised Christian yet also interested in world religions, especially Eastern religions – Meditation, yoga-previous instructor from 2002 to 2015.
Kaishin 開心 – Hiraki Kokoro, kaishin, or “Flowering Heart”, Zen Buddhism.
All the the above gives her a unique approach to art and life. As we each have inside us.
