Art, Stories and Travel

Art, Stories and Travel

Hi, You have reached the blog page of Ms Pacifica where stories are told relating to travel and nature and the built environment and my experiences and impressions with them. My travels include Mexico, Europe and most recently Scotland and the Orkney Islands. My home base is beautiful New Zealand in the Pacific – and hence the name.

Posts are grouped by geographical location and more recently into Art and Art Stories. This is where I narrate the story that inspired the art work and try to weave them together and explain the impressions, ideas and emotions I am trying to convey.

We all love to travel, but sometimes we feel that we don’t see or get the real essence or spirit of place. When we slow down enough to paint or write about a location we deepen our experience of it. We don’t just see it, we feel it and therefore better understand it. We allow that place to affect us and our outlook. That is one of the reasons we travel. If I can help you see and feel or remember a location more deeply, through my experiences and art and stories, then maybe it can enrich all our lives. Just by sharing another’s experience we open ourselves up to more possibilities.

Art works are available to purchase – either as originals or limited edition prints.
