Aurora Tonini

Artist’s Statement

I am passionate about the therapeutic benefits of engaging in artistic expression. Art feeds the soul, and should be encouraged more in our society today.

I enjoy creating art in various mediums and over the years my work has ventured more into abstraction. Printmaking has become my preferred practice at the moment and I am thoroughly enjoying the time I spend in the studio experimenting.

I also have a strong passion to encourage others to try and put art practices back into their busy lives, the benefits are enormous.
Along with years of experience in coordinating arts based events I also have a strong background in Retail and Small Business Management.
