When I decided I was going to take an abstract art course to keep pushing my artistic development, I fully expected I would love it and it would do great things for me. So what happened really surprised me and left me kind of baffled. I specifically chose to do an in-person course. I’d tried a lot of online courses and found I lacked the motivation needed to keep going after the first week and to do the ‘homework’. By […]

Instagram Mashup – Watercoloury Experimentations

I’m pretty active over on Instagram (come follow me!) so once a month I’m sharing with you the work I feel most excited about! I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m not very much into watersoluble media. I’m a total acrylics lover yo. However, with the summer approaching and generally being out of the house more, I really felt I should have a proper try at watercolours. They’re much more portable, less messy and I should be able […]

Embracing Your Inner Darkness

I’m afraid of my inner darkness. That might not be a very surprising statement, because I don’t know many people going around declaring how much they luuuuuuuurve their dark stuff. (Other words for this might be inner demons, or issues, or icky stuff, or what do you call it?) I had a realisation the other day though: I have this wonderful platform for exploring my darkness in a safe place. ART And yet I don’t. I’m afraid of what might […]
