Hello my lovely!

YAY, I’m so glad you’re here!

Do you want to draw, paint & access your inner artist but don’t know how to start? I’m Iris, a mixed media artist from London, UK. I help people clear their creative blocks, make art & feel good about themselves!

Sometimes you need more in life than just the day-to-day ‘musts’ and for me art fills that space in my heart.

Through art you can empower yourself and live up to your true potential. Art is powerful, healing and a great tool for self-development. Also, it’s FUN!

On my website I share my journey, my learnings and discoveries with you, so you can get creatively inspired too!

Join me on this journey and empower yourself to live an authentic art-filled life! Go and grab my free Mixed Media Art & Inspiration Guide. Just pop your name & email in the form and you can get started right away!

It’s a lovely compliment to … [Read More...]
