About

Thanks for following Ciska's Art - Australian Artist
Ciska’s lives in Townsville, Queensland, Australia

Ciska is an emerging artist currently re-engaging with her lifelong love of art. As a child Ciska used to draw and paint alot but following her dream didn't seem to be a reality. Ciska had to get a real job and raise a family. Once the children had fled Ciska discovered she had a mental illness. Whilst suffering and learning to manage Bipolar Disorder, Ciska was lead back to painting. Ciska came to see this as a medium to “Embrace the Child within and a Journey through life with a Passion for more Creativity”.

Ciska has been painting in Acrylics, Oils and Inks as well as using texture in her paintings, for the last 16 years. She looks to express the image with movement and texture whilst aiming to bring colour, light, and form in all her works, as well finding her own uniqueness and creative flow without loosing the story of what brought her to the pieces conclusion. Ciska’s works are Fun, Diverse and Vibrant.

After many years, Ciska looks forward to many artistic adventures along the path while exploring the passions of life within her work.

To Ciska Painting is like flying, it is uplifting and a pleasure to share with other people
Ciska is grateful that she has many works in homes and businesses all over Australia.

If she can put a smile on your face, or
Has taken your soul to a different place,
she has succeeded.

………….Embrace the Child within yourself……………
….Be Creative and make Someone Smile……

Influences

I was taught the basics of painting by a dear friend De Gillett a fabulous artist here in Townsville
After that I can say I am a self taught artist, trying new things all the time. I haven't put my brush down since.
