THE SILK ROAD

For the last 40 years, mother of three, and grandmother of six, collector, artist Bernadette Smith has travelled each year along the rich and exotic pathway of the Silk road.  The Silk road reaches from Central Asia, linking China in the each and to Iran and the Mediterranean to the west. Then north to Russia and south to India and Afghanistan.  Now celebrating her 80th year of her life, she is travelling around Uzbekistan, the last city of the Silk road.  Her home plays homage to her travels and houses her eclectic finds and handmade textiles that she found at markets years ago. Bernadette's artwork is inspired by her love of arts, crafts and textiles and her life in the Southern Highlands of NSW.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality.

 

Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. 

 

Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day.

 

Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe.  When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. -
