Little black Diary

Back on the road. This time not looking for inspiration in obvious places. I know it may look like I spend all my time in Shoreditch (which, I wish I did), but apart from my creative cravings, shoreditch also treats my sweet tooth. There’s a little cake shop sitting sweetly in the corner of Spitalfields…

Art in the City

Thinking outside the circle, I mean box, I decided to try something very different, in comparison to my previous Mandala’s. Before hitting the drawing board, I had London in mind, as my set theme. My idea spiraled tall skyscrapers round in circles. The outcome however, was much different as I chose to go horizontal. I…

Colour Mix

When one is just not enough, mix and match multiple. This by far had to be my longest and funnest project. My plan was to follow the colours of the rainbow and create three mandala’s for each colour. Before jumping into this project I made a list of 18 patterns for each mandala, which helped…

Where Artists Go

I’m constantly on the hunt for inspiration. A necessity amongst artists. I’ve therefore created a go to list of places that renew my passion for art. On my previous blog post I mentioned the William Morris gallery in Walthamstow. Today, I’m going to talk about an open place that many Londoners know all too well,…

Art into Words

Now that I’ve named my art, it’s time to give them mini descriptions. Back on Word, I’m painting my work verbally. Words can be visual, they capture imaginations and evoke powerful and harmonious thoughts. I’ve written and scribbled many drafts, here’s what I did. Bullet pointed facts from the the penciled ideas to the final…

Identifying art

Once the artwork is finished, it’s safely stored away, waiting to be titled. I have over 10 nameless artworks. Realising I can’t ignore this any longer, I’ve closed Photoshop and have taken to word. Armed with my dictionary I’m scribbling together descriptive words that I feel connect well with my pieces through process, style and…

Silhouettes to Sunsets

I’m about a month late at posting this. But, here’s a full peak at my Ramadan art series. Wherever you are in the world, you would have learnt a thing or two about Ramadan (the ninth month in the Islamic Calendar). Throughout this month, Muslims kept a fast from dusk to dawn, highlighting the importance…

Bare white lines

Sometimes staring at a blank canvas can be intimidating; scribbling ideas not going my way, inspiration running on no fuel. When I begin to feel like this I make it my priority to visit a museum or two. This is the beauty of living in London, we’re spoilt for choices. London features a wealth of…

Artists Table

2018 saw the beginning of a new art and blogging start for me. I took to my chosen medium (Photoshop) and began drawing in circles. Pursuing a trend that has become exceedingly  popular on Instagram. You may have guessed it the art craze I’m talking about is Mandala. Mandala is an historical art known to…
