'Avalyn is a fantastic art teacher. She is light humoured, inspiring, and gifted in her field. I was lucky enough to participate in an art class she held at a retreat, and I was very pleased with my creation. Before the workshop, I was not confident in my creative abilities, and had hardly picked up a crayon or paint brush, but Avalyn was very encouraging and brought out the best of my abilities. It was an incredibly relaxing and fun experience. I highly recommend Avalyn’s art classes for all levels of experience.' – Nicola, Organisation Consultant
An artist’s journey. Avalyn Doyle.
'Although I have been painting prolifically for over 40 years, and travelling to many power sites around the planet to intuit the earth’s stories, I have only recently decided to settle into the business of being an artist. However, that could be considered a contradictory statement, as I have been selling consistently to many people in many places since the early 80s.
Following my heart, without much concern for security and personal comfort, my adventurous lifestyle has deeply enriched my soul – that’s really the only way to put it. I couldn’t have known until recently, but developing an inner security and deep love for every moment, has been the outcome of over 30 years of relocating, and stubbornly making art, whether sculpture from found objects; photography; painting; print-making; redesigning books; ceramics; writing.
Feeling displaced led me to 5 years in retreat in the Australian bush. Through this isolation I developed a connection to the spiritual essence of the land - coming home. In 2006 I received permission from an Aboriginal elder to use ochres/earth pigments, and I cannot describe here the amazing experiences that unfolded from that recognition.
Of course there is always MORE, and my inner convictions now lead me to attempt to paint God/Source/enlightenment. I am not religious, but love the bliss I feel connecting to the most reliable essence of all : my Self. I have an autobiography, Falling Through Time, in the publishing stream with Hay House describing a few of my journeys.
Since 2012, I have mostly exhibited in Europe and New York city, and I am very delighted to be settling and exhibiting on the Mornington Peninsula, where I was born.'
