Art by Anita Revel

Hola beautiful! Anita Revel here. *waving atcha from Margaret River, Western Australia*

I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, but quashed the urge to pursue more mainstream study and career choices through my 20s and 30s.

No matter. I’m actually grateful!

All the left-brain choices I’ve made to date have all led me to where I am today… With fabulous process-driven, linear and logical skills to build businesses that make my heart sing.

Score! Heart, creativity and soul… AND THE WHAT-FOR TO MAKE IT HAPPEN! Woooo!

There are a lot of things that make my heart sing, but beauty seems to be the common thread.

For example…

* I conduct beautiful wedding ceremonies in Australia. I’ve even been voted by brides as the #1 Celebrant in the south west (twice!), and won a couple of business awards to boot.

* I am the hostess of a beautiful little self-contained B&B room on our farm: the Margaret River Heartland

* I write books to help women discover their inner beautiful, intuitive, amazing selves, including the best-seller: The Goddess DIET.

* I create beauty in order to be surrounded by beauty. Whether upcycling, sculpting, re-working or painting, I am most often found in my studio, playing with paint and teasing out the newest idea revealing itself with every brush stroke.

2015 is my year of re-discovering the artist within, and I’m dedicating it to growing my creative muscles.

To help me keep going, to spur me on, and to motivate me to keep creating, I’m committing to an art challenge.

You can watch my progress via my blog, via my Red Bubble store, or whatevs… you can also not watch my progress! (You’re not going to do anything you don’t want to do, and that’s a trait I love in people!)

Shine on babes,
Love, Anita Revel

My Studio

My studio is located in an old dairy shed on our family farm in Cowaramup.

It is guarded by a wine barrel marked with a big yellow “STUDIO” painted wonkily across it. It’s wonky because I was working around my daughter at the time, who was in turn creating her own masterpiece on the barrel and refused to budge! 😉

I do welcome visitors, but do request advanced notice so that I can at least clear a path … (sometimes I paint my large scale pieces on the floor which can get a bit cramped).

I look forward to seeing you one day!
