Opposites Attract

Setting aside the white backgrounds. I’ve opted to use black, for a series of white-outlined, vibrant coloured and intricately patterned mandalas. Drawing and colouring on black is a novelty. The mindful spiral paired up well with the elegant colour. It was appealing how the dark background didn’t let the light hues recede. Instead their vibrancy…

Late Night Sketch

I spend most evenings cosied up in front of my computer. If this sounds like a late night romantic expedition, it is. During this cold, (let’s pretend) stormy night I have a new set of trio mandalas to share. Inspired by the crisp season; deep colours of winter were applied to the mandalas with complimentary…

All things round and beautiful

A few new editions added to my mandala collection. It’s been a while since I shared my mandala work. I’ve quietly been working on them whilst entering competitions. And, today I finally wanted to share the long overdue, mindful artwork. I’ve got my digital pen primed and the paintbrush ready to draw.

I heart Photoshop

I’ve shared my inspiration and work; now it’s time to go behind the scenes and share the technique. As an art-nerd I’ve faithfully stuck to Photoshop as my go to medium for countless years. Journeying through the software’s updates and transitions, from C.D to instant downloadable. The three main tools I use are; the pen,…

Merry-full Art

The advent calendar is completely empty, Santa’s been and gone, the gifts are all un-boxed, feasters are going for seconds and chillers are binging on Netflix with a cup of white hot chocolate. feeling a little festive this season, I gave the silhouette mandala’s some sparkle, by turning them into baubles. Each bauble is filled…

Sweet Treats

Making chocolate taste as good as it does is a work of art. So when one of the tastiest chocolate brands asks for a limited edition print, how can a chocoholic say no? Lindt recently invited artists to create a limited edition packaging for their beloved Easter bunny; known for its golden exterior, red bow,…

The Walking Dead – What Comes After

I’ve caught the competition bug. This open call was for the hit T.V series, The Walking Dead. To mark the epic return of the compelling show, FOX invited artists to visually recreate their favourite scene. As I’ve never watched TWD (shock). I didn’t have a favourite scene that I could use as a reference. Therefore,…

A magical treat: Crimes of the Grindelwald

If you like Harry Potter, then you’re in for a treat. The recent open call I worked on, was to create an illustration for J.K Rowling’s new wizarding adventure, The Crimes of Grindelwald, a movie sequel to The Fantastic Beasts. To research the movie I watched the enticing trailer a number of times, each view…

Art-committed

I’ve strayed away from my blog for far too long. Getting myself back on track, this week I made an early visit to the Victoria and Albert museum in South Kensington; for a spot of mint tea in their exquisite café and to enjoy their vast collection of treasured art. The tearoom as always wrapped…

Belated Halloween

It’s that time for bucket load of candy corns,Trick or treat stash’s, dressing up scarily cute or creepingly horrifying. Halloween may be over but I’m still in the mood for spooks and discounted chocolate. For the occasion I created three Halloween mandalas; a spider web, a bat cave and a crooked fence. Each very different…
