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 for a spot of mint tea in their exquisite café and to enjoy their vast collection of art. The tearoom as always wrapped me into a layer…

Tate, Thames, Tea

Another week, another gallery/ museum. This week I was greeted by the large scale walls of an old power station, The Tate Modern. The prominent landmark is located in Southbank, an admiring walking distance from London Bridge station. Many pit stops were made along the way. The spacious gallery is brimming with inspiration, from its…

Mad about Liberty London

After my previous post, it was only fair for me to visit Liberty London. Located on the corner of Regent Street, the department store is clear as a bell with its Tudor-like frontage. Liberty was founded in 1875 by Arthur Lasenby Liberty. Its Grade II-listed Tudor replica was built in 1924 and was constructed with…

Liberty Open Call

For the second time this year Liberty London is holding an Open Call. They’re offering artists the chance to have their work famously printed onto Liberty fabric. With the use of Instagram and the hashtag #LibertyOpenCall they will scout unique talent based in the UK. Did I get hashtagging? Yes I did. I’d be over…

Her Theory

Another post based on an open call. This theme in particular is one I hold close to me. The theme is called “I am a women, this is my legacy”. Upon hearing about this challenge, I was excited to take it on; from the drawing board to the final touches, ideas kept leaping in from…

100 Day Art Challenge

Another elongated week. I should have completed week 3 a few days ago. But non-the-less I’ve finally done it, without missing a single day. Keeping your word and committing to something on a daily bases can be quite the challenge. However, on the plus side I’m exploring new patterns everyday. I look at daily objects…

Day At

So I spent a good hour at the British Museum shop, browsing the latest collection of stationary and books. I’ve visited the Museum many times and on many occasions I’ve breezed through, only to spend a good part of the visit at the shop. Why the shop? I hear you ask. Here, I find a…

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…
