Going through memory lane

It’s coming to a month since we said goodbye to 2018. Here I’ve stitched together a 3 by 3 of my favourite artwork from last year. Feeling a little nostalgic, I took a walk down memory lane; spending some time looking over past posts, whilst planning for new content. Looking back, I wasn’t afraid of…

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.

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,…

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…
