Searching for treasure or a lofty goal has been a human motivation since day one. Whether it be the elusive Holy Grail, pirates looking for the sunken chest of bullion or getting the detail in that brushstroke to look just right, it seems we’re all searching for betterment. Somewhere along the line we have to make a decision on a definitive direction. Do I focus on art full-time? Or is it a part-time gig or hobby? Enter Alina Gane-Hurcomb. It seemed to dawn on her that once she got started, she fell into a love of painting and all things art! “I had always loved art, but hadn’t considered it as a career until I attended a free workshop at The Learning Connexion three years ago. They called a week later offering me a scholarship to come and study with them.

“The scholarship motivated me to try my hand at art and after two weeks, art had crept into my soul and made its bed. I knew I was there for the long haul and that art was what had been the missing ingredient in my life.” The decision made, direction was the key. Alina had to find the treasure now that the missing ingredient - painting - was evident. “I didn’t know what I was inspired by creatively. I would see fellow artists who were completely passionate about various things and I would work with them on projects and exhibitions in the hope that their passion for the subject matter would rub off, but I found that my work always lacked something. I knew that I needed to find my own muse, but had no idea where to look. In 2018 I found her! It turns out that my passion, inspiration and soul reside in historical European architecture and travel.” She came full circle in considering herself an artist following one of these offshore adventures.
