Hi, I’m Celeste Hawkins from Melbourne, Australia.
I teach, write and make art.
See my website here . I have a small collection of artworks and a CV.
I have made a commitment to post at least once a week, however long or short! The main focus of this space is to present a visual feast of inspiring people. I’ve always been interested in the internal struggles and motivations of other artists and anyone involved in a creative vocation. How do they cope-trying to make art and raise a family, balance their passion with their paid job, try to make money from their art, actualise their ideas? Art and social change is also gaining momentum as I come across so many creatives directing their energies to a number of causes that they feel stronlgy about.
I’m a gatherer of knowledge. I am also a collector of stories. I have always held a deep passion for the interview.
I do admit to have in my posession- at the ready; piles of books and magazines, ripped out articles, sticky notes and scrawled ideas on envelopes, a ridiculously long bookmarked section on the computer and visual diaries full of bits and pieces and I’m always grateful that there is a forum for these bits to go forth and be reborn into a new space.
At times, I’m also here to explore and share the process of making and creating with the help of (mostly Melbourne) creators who are happy to share their passions. Check out the interview section for some of these experiences!
Every few months, I send out a newsletter of my favourite posts. So please feel free to subscribe!
