About me

This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

View across the road

'I open my eyes and see the world in a new light. I view everything as if I were a child seeing a freshly opened flower for the first time.'

W&N watercolour on DalerRowney 220gsm heavy-duty sketching paper 

The view across the road from my studio – I stare at this every day, and every day I am amazed at the different play of colours on the landscape….



  1. Hello Maree:) Lucky you! This must be very inspiring. Your sketch is beautiful:)

    1. Hi Renate! Thanks for your lovely comment! Early morning, as the sun rises, is best to see the colours as shade and sunlight change places. During late afteroon, when the sun is directly behind, the view changes to very dark green, never a dull moment!
