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!

I Can’t Draw

If I had a penny for every time I heard someone say "I can't draw" or "I can't even draw a stick figure".... I'd have a fair amount of pennies. I can't draw either. Or couldn't. I don't know. At some point I couldn't draw. And now I'm at a different stage of 'can't draw'. And in a few years' time I will be further progressed on my journey of … [Read More...]

Instagram Mashup – December 2015 & January 2016

I've not made as much art recently as usual, which I think is partly to do with being completely exhausted after creating daily for NaNoJouMo and is also to do with me picking up playing World of Warcraft again. Playing/not playing is a bit of a complex issue for me, but in any case I've noticed that I'm feeling much happier generally. When I do … [Read More...]

Giving Up?

Do you ever get so frustrated with your art that you just want to throw in the towel? Bin it? Give up? I'm currently teaching in several places (Let's Face It & Love Art Happy Life) and apart from the wonderful work that is being posted, people also sometimes express their frustration.

Stop Calling Me Talented

Let’s stop thinking of ‘talented’ as a rigid concept that is inherent (you are born with it), and let’s start thinking about it as something more fluid. Talent can be built on and it isn’t required in order to have fun or do something really well. When people like my art they often tell me ‘Oh you’re so talented!’. It’s a lovely compliment to … [Read More...]

Connections & An Exciting New Project Art101 Challenge

Making meaningful connections has been high on my priority list since diving head first into my artistic journey last year. I've always felt so isolated, like I have to do everything by myself and that sharing is somehow giving something away, something you can't get back. I've come to realise how important it is to find people you connect with, … [Read More...]
