(Meet Mago Contributor) Arna Baartz

SONY DSCArna is a painter, writer/poet, martial artist, educator and mother to eight fantastic children.

She has been expressing herself creatively for 44 years and finds it to be her favourite way of exploring her inner being enough to evolve positively in an externally focused world.

Arna’s artistic and literary expression is her creative perspective of the stories she observes playing out around her.

Claims to fame: Arna has been selected for major art prizes and won a number of awards, published books and (her favourite) was used as a ‘paintbrush’ at the age of two by well known Australian artist John Olsen!

Arna lives and works from her bush studio in the Northern Rivers, NSW Australia.
