Drop in for a public talk on Tibetan Buddhist art, the ancient tradition of creating images of Buddhas and symbols of enlightenment. Learn about the symbolism of the different Buddhas and images, and how this art is used to benefit us on our spiritual path.

Presented by Ella Brewer: Ella’s artwork features in Buddhist centres around the world. Tibetan Buddhism emphasizes the use of art to inspire and lift the mind and heart. It is Ella’s heart wish to be of service to the Buddhist and wider community by making and teaching others to make holy objects in this tradition. Ella was born in New Zealand in 1971. Ella completed a fine arts degree in painting at Auckland University in 1994 then taught secondary school for twenty years in New Zealand and Britain. Ella completed a seven year apprenticeship with Andy Weber, an internationally renowned artist and expert in the field of Tibetan art. Ella is currently working at Epsom Girls Grammar and is based in Sandringham, Auckland, New Zealand.
