Sunshine Art from the Heart.
Sunshine is a Laotian artist who was born in London, United Kingdom.
Since she was a little girl she has always been artistic and takes after her mother-in-law her father who are also artists.
She has a continuous passion to create and to discover new ways in which to let her ideas express itself.
Whilst living in England she had always been very active in her art at school but it wasn’t until she lived in Spain for a while that she really felt her creativity flow.
She loves to work with a variety of materials, some of these include acrylic paints, oil paints, Swarovski crystals, 24-karat gold leaf, silks, textiles, wooden beads, tiles for mosaic art etc.
Sunshine first started painting Mandalas 8 years ago after purchasing a t-shirt at a festival she copied the design onto a canvas. She wanted to know more about what this symbol meant and found out that Mandalas are used in many cultures as a tool to get in contact with your soul. For Sunshine, painting mandalas has helped her get in contact with herself and her true passion.
Her mother-in-law Anne Weltens (Akasha) was also a big inspiration in creating her mandalas. She has always supported her energetically and has always believed and supported Sunshine. Not only has she shown her new styles of creating she has always been a pillar of strength and love.
Edgar Weltens, her love and best friend has supported her and given her strength to believe in her talents events when she felt insecure. He saw things in her she never even knew she had.
Her father is an artist himself and growing up with his paintings surrounding her paved the way in her creative journey.
Depending on the size of one painting it can take from 1 to 4 months to complete because of the vast detail and love involved.
Each painting is a journey of self-growth. When she starts new pieces on a blank canvas and sees what unfolds she finds herself in a beautiful and rewarding process.
She quotes, “the path of creation leads me to joy”.
She adopted her artist name “Sunshine” from her partner Edgar Weltens, because when they first met this was the way she made him feel about her, and she hopes that this is what you feel when viewing her artwork.
