Style and frame your art collection

Style and frame your art collection

Original art has always been an important part of my life. My grandfather was an artist and on every wall of my childhood home, a unique piece of art was hung. His style moved across mediums, shapes, sizes and subject. Together these pieces brightened our home and the homes of family and friends.

I think because I have grown up with so much art around, I’ve always been inspired to grow my own collection. And I want to pass some tips on to you if you want to start your own and display it proudly in your home.

How do you know if you have synesthesia

Do you think you might have synesthesia? Read about my experience to learn more about the condition and whether you might have it to!

Synesthesia is the crossing of senses. What this means is that synesthetes have a sensory perception -sound, taste, smell, touch, sight – that is interpreted by the brain through an experience not usually associated with that specific sense. I see music as colour, in that when I hear a sound, a colour automatically and involuntarily appears in my mind, taking on a form that is always consistent.

I’m doing #The100DayProject – 100 synesthesia artworks in 100 days

This year marks the 6th annual #The100DayProject and now I’m fully committing!

I came across #The100DayProject a few years ago on Instagram and so admired the many creatives who took part. Their projects were varied – big, small, sketching, embroidery, poetry – but the thing that connected them was the journey that these creators had committed to.

I’ll be painting 100 songs in 100 days from The Rolling Stones’ ‘100 Greatest Songs of the Century – So Far’.

New to the archive – March 2019

It’s been a quiet month in the studio and I’ve taken advantage of that downtime by giving my Etsy and online shop a major overhaul! You’ll notice that you can now purchase abstract styles across the shop, as well as having the option to upgrade your certificate of authenticity to a full synesthesia description.

You’ve been asking for abstract styles for a while and I’m so glad that these are now easier to purchase, and profiled front and center in the shop!

This beautiful piece of art brought me to tears. The way she describes the piece, each color and splash is something different.

I’m in awe– I will be back!!
