Toni Truesdale Artist in residence The Steeple Newburgh North Fife
For the past month Toni Truesdale has been Artist in residence at The Steeple Newburgh North Fife. Quickly gained the tag, "Toni that paints" Gave talks of her works and motivations. Toni states " History and Mythology need to include the unrestricted stories of all women. The female perspective should be reflected in aesthetics, values, spirituality and morality.
I develop imagery that shows the natural beauty and intelligence in aspects of the multicultural life of Sisters, mothers, daughters, aunts, nieces, grandmothers all"
I'm feeling left out here.
