|The relaxed and unique island lifestyle is a perfect working environment for one of the abstract art world's most prolific painters. Sej draws from her natural environment to create magical works of art which meld beautifully within a contemporary setting. Her work is inspired by the very nature around her, coupled with a deeply inuitive feel for creating art that is both highly energetic and deeply spiritual.
" There is a fine line between what is simply organic, and what is organic AND intuitive.
This "organic intuitiveness" as I call it, is not so much about taming the medium , but rather capturing fragments of beautiful moments when the medium reveals itself in it's pure magic.
While I appreciate patience and consistancy, nothing gives me more pleasure than allowing intuition to take over, knowing when to stop, when I see something spectacular and not feel pressured to create something that is more than it is already showing. This is pure energy." -Sej
"I began painting back in 1989 whilst on an extended 2 month stay in Fiji. I was so inspired by the people, the environment, the lifestyle. I can relate to Gaugin and his time in Tahiti. The island lifestyle is so appealing and so invigorating, it truly is like another world. So very inspiring - it has lasted me half a lifetime!"
