Now – Art Journal Tutorial Video

In my free art & inspiration guide there are several sections with art supply ideas, colour schemes and tutorials so I thought I’d create a video series in which I basically follow my own guide and show you the process! The other week I went on a bit of an art supply binge at Atlantis (big art supply store in East London). I got a good haul! I got some black gesso which I’ve been experimenting with a bit in […]

Butterfly Whispers – Permission to Grow and Learn

I’ve been excited about doing a new art video for a while now, so on Tuesday I sat down to create a new art journal spread and recorded the process to share with you. Voila, here it is, I hope you like it! By doing so I’ve realised something. I find it hard to create when I’m feeling watched (i.e. recording myself). Recently I’ve been working in my art journal with such freedom and wild abandon. I work quickly, intuitively, […]

Little Tour Of My Art Studio

I thought I’d do a quick video to share my art studio with you all. My art space is small but packed with all the things I use. My desk is usually a really big mess, just enough room for the journal/canvas! It’s how I like to work, but you’ll see I actually tidied up a bit before filming. I absolutely love this little space I’ve created! It’s a sacred place I can retreat to and be free to create, […]

My 10 Favourite Art Supplies

I looove art supplies (and have spent way too much money on them over the years, probably a lot on useless stuff) so I thought you might like to know my favourite supplies. As a consequence these are supplies I use all the time and in almost all my work. This top 10 is in no particular order because it’s never just one thing that is the greatest, with mixed media it’s all about the effect things produce in combination. […]

Taking Time & Enjoying Life

Phew, February was a whirlwind of fun! We went on our much anticipated trip to the US. In one word it was AWESOME. Probably up there with the best holidays I’ve ever had. We flew to NYC and picked up our RV We did a couple of days of the tourist thing in NYC and I met up with two of my highschool friends (bearing in mind we’re all from The Netherlands it was a bit of a coincidence that […]

A Happy Accident – Gelli Plate & Brayer Fun

I finally got some time the other night to play with my new Gelli plate that I got for Christmas! I’d seen a couple of videos about them, but hadn’t used one before myself. I was just playing really, finding out how to use it, how to create texture and what colours to use. I created a few sheets that I’m pleased with and some that look a bit close to mud!! The thing I ended up liking most was […]

Art Supply Shops in London

I love going into art shops and nosing around for new supplies (or stocking up on basics). I can’t imagine how they must struggle against competitive online suppliers. Nothing beats actually going into an art shop though, I’m addicted! So I thought I would compile a list of shops I frequent that sell art supplies in London. Most of these ones are in Central London. I hope you find this helpful! Atlantis • Aldgate, E1 http://www.atlantisart.co.uk A huge shop (biggest […]
