Do not go where the path may lead, go instead
where there is no path
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
He sees that art has no boundaries, he feels how far he is from his goal, and while others admire him, he grieves that he has not yet reached the point that appears to him in the distance, like sunlight .
- Ludwig van Beethoven
MY EXPERIENCES WITH THE "Thread" EXHIBITION
In a year of uncertainty, I’m so happy to say that I achieved something that has made me proud. Last month, I put on my second exhibition, THREAD. While on one level, I am glad it’s over, I also learned so much from it and the experience still hasn’t left my mind. COVID didn’t actually affect the painting process so much. It did make for a stricter opening night, but it mainly just manifested a giant urge in me to get something out.
Carmonn French has more creativity in the left nail than most of us throughout our lives! Her paintings are excellent; colorful, delicate and beautiful. Canalises French elegance. I just love her job.

Quite differently to my last exhibition ‘100 Faces’, which had a broader meaning, THREAD was entirely focused on one individual. It was a challenge but it was a great experiment to really try and tie a particular story together through my artworks.
While some of the bigger pieces were very emotionally fuelled, a lot of the smaller pieces were done without thinking too hard about them. Interestingly, I found that the pieces that I was less emotionally attached to actually sold a lot quicker. This taught me to let go of the process, to stop trying to make them look too ‘professional’. Of course I still wanted them to be perfect:)
Next year, next show. What's next?
I'll be painting a new collection that will be held at Parliament House in Sydney next year June 2021.
Much love and colour.
The exhibition took place in October 2020, at Gallery 371, Marrickville, Australia

Photography became her way of sharing imagination, the intimate dialogue with the viewer. Her works are full of emotions, poetics and nostalgia. You can find there both portraits, landscapes, as well as reportage and street photos. However, she herself admits that in photography she is most interested inpeople and form.
Word and image - this is my artistic form of expressing sensitivity based on experiences, observations of the world, people and life. Currently, I am fulfilling the role of a mother. I believe that this is the greatest experience so far.
