Love, Light and Nature: Art Exhibition by ShazArt

Birr Library, March 1st – April 7th



"My name is Shaz, I came to Ireland in 2008 from Plymouth in the southwest of England, settling in the midlands. With no formal art lessons, (only at school) I self taught and seriously “picked up the brushes” on a driven level in 2010.

Every spare minute was put into sketching and painting. My subject matter and inspiration came from the wonderful surrounding nature. Finding a freedom in mother earth, attuning to the natural energies and vibrations of flora, fauna, skies, dusk and dawn. Tuning into the peace and natural flow of the world; tuning out the chaos and petty importance of today’s lifestyle I believe we all have the ability to change, heal and feel love through beauty and peaceful surroundings. My work offers places of calm, where the mind can feel at ease, drifting into manifesting inner peace; freeing the inner spirit to rise and realise dreams and aspirations. The “I can” is always possible, no matter what anyone deems not so, having that “knowing” and boosting it through all my work, I hope for a door in your world to open, allowing you to walk into a positive, loving, new landscape, where all is good on your path and definitely within reach. DREAM BIG."
