My name is Caroline Street, I am from South Africa. This diverse and beautiful country has been vital in everything I have created and written about. It has everything I love! Fauna, flora and sunshine. I put my brushes, words and camera to good use in describing everything I see, study and experience.
The most important person in my life is God. Without Him, I would not have been ‘led’ anywhere. Jesus Christ is my mover and shaker. Without a Creator there would not have been a creation – of course, an obvious fact, but one which has moved me on a continuous journey of self-discovery. On this long road of trial and error, questions, contemplation, trying to bring out the best in myself and others, living joyfully (no matter what), and learning to be thankful for what I have, I can just say that I have been blessed. God knew that the best way to guide me was through nature. Nature has taught me a lot – to say the least, and it is through nature where I found God and the answers to my questions.
I paint in all mediums, including digital art and have completed about 600 pieces of art. I paint landscapes, animals, birds, still-life, plants, portraits, figures and mandalas. I enjoy crafts as well.
I write poetry, quotes and posts about life and nature, and I illustrate my work with my photographs and art. My writing, I hope, is inspirational and colourful. I have published an illustrated book of poetry, with forty-one poems, titled Take a Walk with Me.
I enjoy photographing wildlife, little creatures and flowers, etc. I am a keen gardener and have been blessed with an amazing garden, which I make full use of in my work.
