Fern Smith the person behind FernArtz

Who is Fern Smith? I am an artist with thirty years of exhibiting and art facilitation experience. Creating art many decades I consider I have passion to tell stories through drawing, painting and printing.

Why does an artist hold workshops? I like sharing my passion, knowledge and skills I have learnt along the way, to as many people as possible. I hold a strong belief we can all imagine and we can all manifest our imaginings in creative ways.
