Leela Fernandez is an artist who is influenced by colour, nature and the play of light. Her spontaneous fluid creations applied to jewellery are each one of a kind.
Artist, Art Therapist, Graphic Designer, Photographer, Yoga teacher and Student of Life. Leela Fernandez is fascinated by the interconnecting threads in our world. Her business, Solart is a visual expression attempting to capture this phenomena. The influencing forces that have inspired this creative vision are colour, nature, astrology, sacred geometry and the play of life.
Working from a home studio in Melbourne she creates her art and with a life long burning passion. She works with a variety of esoteric influences found through her many years of travelling the world, which dip in and out of her artwork. Playing with different mediums along the way, she is currently focused mainly on acrylic inks and alcohol inks as she loves the intense vibrancy of colour they offer.
At the moment her energy is going into jewellery where she is applying her abstract fluid alcohol ink artwork onto earrings and necklaces. The discs she uses are beautiful lightweight wooden mandalas which each have unique pieces of artwork mounted onto them. No single earring is the same, which is something Leela truly appreciates – wearable art that sets you apart from the world. Mini paintings you can enjoy each day.
