Samala

I am 26 years of age and I love to paint, draw, sculpt and be creative.   My weeks are full of art moments!  Two days a week I am weaving with my Weavers of Waste crew.  We get fabric from the Denmark Tip shop and from the op shops and upcycle it into woven rugs for floor or wall.  I am also thinking of making clothing and bags from my weaving.  As well, I upcycle material in my sewing projects, which are then sold from my studio/gallery and online (samalaghoshcreations.com).  When I’m not studying at tafe or weaving with the Weavers of Waste I’m in my studio/gallery sewing, painting, sculpting or creating one way or another.  Outside I like taking photos.  Many of my photos have been bought and sent overseas as well as my other works.  I have held two very successful solo art exhibitions. Recently I had a joint exhibition of my weaving for the Denmark Brave New Works Community Arts Festival.  The theme was ‘Love’.  It was a sell out!  I enjoy the energy of preparing for an exhibition and am planning to have another one soon.  I love my arts community!  I also play piano and drums and love singing with my musician friends.  “I am an artist, a musician and a role model”.
