Then and Now

It’s roughly been 356 days since my mandala journey started. When I look back and compare my early work to the current projects, I see progress in small details. Everything is relatively the same. However, over time new motifs have been added to simple patterns. Studying my work side by side, I am fascinated by…

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,…

New Year, New Goals

Here’s to 2018, an unforgettable year. The year I started my blog, began entering competitions and gained new skills. I’m ready for 2019, I do hope it’s as exciting and opens new doors for me. I tiptoed into the New Year in my pyjamas and headed straight to bed. The entertainment was in my mind…

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,…

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…
