About Moira Dama Smythe
Moira Dama Smythe is a Sydney, Australia based emotive abstract artist who draws on inspiration from her surroundings to create works of art. Having studied at the Brisbane Institute of Art in the eighties and in recent years, she has always remained involved in the arts as a spectator as well as a participant, taking classes throughout the years in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Brisbane and Sydney. Working for 15 years in the corporate world, Moira created artwork as a form of meditation, to connect to her spirituality, which helped to keep her centered and calm. Previously Moira has sold her artwork privately in Sydney, Australia. Late last year Moira decided to leave corporate life behind and pursue art in a full time capacity rather than as a hobby. Moira has always used art as a tool for relaxation as well as a creative outlet - she felt compelled to create. Her art has a mesmerising and meditative quality. Standing in font of the paintings the viewer is drawn to the colour, movement and vibration as Moira paints what she feels as well as what she sees.
