Hello & Welcome Art Friend!

Hi, I'm Iris. I'm so glad to welcome you to my site! I'm a mixed media artist and art journaler from London.

My art focuses on self-expression and self-discovery. For me art isn't just about techniques, art supplies and making something pretty, it's also about gaining a deeper connection to my self.

I should let you know straightaway I love using exclamation points (!!!) and parentheses (no, really), so consider yourself forewarned.

This is my place on the web where I share my art, writings (about art) and teaching (also about art)! I'm a bit weird and a huge geek and I can't wait to get to know you!
