It is great to be part of The Artists Studio Tours which brings together over 30 artists all opening their studio and exhibition spaces to the public.

There are Painters, Sculptors, Mixed Media Artists, Photographer, Textile artists, Clay artists, Jewelry and Newspaper craft artists

Whilst some of the Artists and their Studios are open at other times during the year by appointment you will be able to make your way round to the artists that catch your eye and see more of their work.

I will be opening up my space over the two weekends and you will be able to see where the creative spark happens and my display space, it will be a great event, and will likely be an annual one.

Arts and Wellness Wednesday - Book Review - Creative Awakenings

Welcome to the blog today.  On the podcast I did a review of the book - Creative Awakenings, Envisioning The Life of Your Dreams Through Art and you can listen to the podcast episode below.

You can check out the book below on Amazon, click on the book for further information 

It is written by Sheri Gaynor and it features inspiration from 12 different artists.  It has so many ideas, mixed media techniques and more within the pages of the book I think it is fantastic.  I have been working through the chapters, and will at some point share some more of my take away's from the book, for now check out the Podcast where I go through the book.

I have listed it on my amazon book list and you can see other books in my growing ideas list of Art Books and Supplies.

New Post Podcast - Creating in Faith - Space Episode - 156

Welcome to Episode 156 of the Creating in Faith Episode on Realityarts podcast. Today's word is Space.

When I look at the valley, mountain, and forests and sea I know there is a God - you can look at the vastness of the universe or your home surroundings. While I don't have the mountains, or valleys near my home we can find the joy in other things that those environments can bring to us. What does the idea of space mean to you both mentally and physically? Check out the Podcast HERE and let me know what you think.

Creating In Faith Weekly Encouraging Recordings are to bless and inspire you to be the best of yourself. It can be really great to pull out your art journal/Journal and express what comes up for you either with images and colour, with words or with both.

Signature Art Exhibition - Mayfair, London

Signature African Art Gallery - Mayfair, London

I was recently invited to attend an exhibition at the Signature African Art Gallery in London Mayfair.  There was some great work on display and new work is added on a regular basis.  They represent artists from West Africa.  More and more I have been draw to sculpture, and I really love the mixed media work on display, but all the work was fantastic.

If you are in the neighborhood check them out.  You can also check out their website HERE and look at the artists that they represent - such a wealth of talent.

Have a look at the video I created below, I had a lovely time viewing the work, it would have been lovely to meet some of the artists, but that is for another time.  The video will give you a sneak peek at some of the work.

Stay blessed and be a blessing
