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.

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…
