There is more, you ask?? Last Monday I posted about the blog hop and answered four questions about my art. This Monday it is the turn of my three lovely friends Stephanie, Juna & Sara.

Especially now that they have posted their answers to give us an insight into their process, I am struck by what I love so much about this blog hop: I adore each of their art, while their personalities and artwork are so completely different! It is such an awesome opportunity to get a glimpse into why and how we create art and finding out that our creative hearts are so similar, yet our creative output is so individual and different!

Please visit these lovely ladies and be inspired by their journeys, insights and attitude to life!

Stephanie-Two-Raggy-DoodlesStephanie from Two Raggy Doodles

Stephanie is an American expat who lives in the green hills of bonnie Scotland (I don’t know if she actually lives in green hills.. but I love the idea and that’s how I imagine things..).

She is a tree-hugging artist and creates nature inspired mixed media art with an environmental message, her work often incorporates materials which would normally have ended up in the recycling bin. I love the wonderfully textured art she creates, I wish I could reach out and touch it! Stephanie loves working with her gelli plate, Winsor & Newton acrylics (especially Payne’s Grey), matte medium, gesso, good watercolour paper and fabric.

Juna Biagioni from Juna Biagioni Art

Juna is a Dutch artist living in the heart of Amsterdam. She has always been creative ever since she was little and has recently come back to creating art.

She specifically likes working with mixed media to create drawings and paintings and polymer clay to create little boxes. I love Juna’s paintings, they are wonderfully unique and evocative. Her latest work revolves around a series of dark blue canvases with very ethereal subject matter. Her pieces are simply breathtaking.

Sarah Torbett from The Rosy Life

Sara lives on a beautiful farm in Arkansas, USA with her husband and two adorable little girls. She is a student of photography, craft and DIY enthusiast, book lover, rose-colored glasses wearin’, art creating, mama and wife.

What I love about Sara is that she sees life and the world with such enthusiasm and positivity, and that translates directly into the beautiful photos and stories she shares on her blog. It’s a truly uplifting and inspirational place to visit and I always feel better after reading her posts.

Thank you for introducing us to such amazing artists. This blog hop is an amazing journey. It is like traveling on a road on holidays and stopping every couple of kilometers to go and visit a new site. Each time at every stop you get a glimpse into the life of another artist. Very inspiring.

I know I feel exactly the same way about the blog hop Angelique! I initially regarded it as just a fun thing to do, but it’s actually been much more valuable than that. I’ve been so impressed with people’s responses and I really feel like I understand them and their art a bit better now.
