Karin Thurston

karinThurstonKarin paints from her own studio in the peaceful setting of the Lightning Ridge preserved opals fields. “Art to me, is a living expression of who I am, it is from my deepest spiritual plane. Originating from a Gamilaraay background, spirituality exists in all my art forms – painting, prose, poetry, pottery and photography.  I am of the Dhulii,  sand goanna people and my spirit is ‘Giniybarra- the tree’.  My Legacy  is to continue sand painting – to mentor sand artists. Through art, I can take my place in the universe, uncluttered by the demands of life, both mental and physical”.
Karin’s mediums include: photography, paint on canvas, sand painting, weaving and ceramics.
