OK, still on this weeks theme of LOVE, i want to introduce you to an extremely talented local artist, whos work i simply adore.....Stephanie Lawson. She has an exhibit called Paris, Je T'aime on the Gold Coast at the WAY OF DESIGN Gallery at Currumbin at the moment....all about LOVE. I discovered her work sometime ago and have been in love with it ever since. I love the her use of colour texture and collage. I will not say much about her work,as i am no critic... but urge you to check it out yourself.
You can find her works here, if you'd like to see more:
The Way of Design, Currumbin Beachfront
Corporate Art, Burleigh Heads
Total Art Concepts, Marine Parade, Kingscliff

She's also planning on doing some classes early this year...which i am definitely going to be doing when she starts. If you live on the Gold Coast and are interested, just email her at email@example.com and let her know .
And i'll leave you with some LOVE quotes:
Love fills the heart with joy,
Fills togetherness with fun,
and fills partings with sweet sorrow.
You know when you have found your love because the smile in your heart will be bigger than the smile on your face.
Love does not consist in gazing at eachother... but in looking outward together in the same direction" Antione Saint-Exupery
