Wandering Artist

Hello friends,

As I continue through my creative journey, I am increasingly surprised by the difficulty of defining my style. 

Sometimes I wonder, should I pin it down and stick to one distinctive design style? I do admire those that manage to achieve this, purely because the artist becomes so recognisable by their art. 

Unfortunately, there is probably zero chance of this for me, as I love to play with art and learn new techniques and skills. I also worry about limiting my creativity, which peaks when I design just what I’m in the mood for.

There are times I feel like creating an illustrative scene, other days I want to work with photography, still others are spent making a pattern, creating graphics and designing Monograms like the one shown here:

You see what I mean now don’t you? I’m a wandering artist, my inspiration takes me everywhere!


The uploading process to my art store is so tiresome, I got bored (Managed A-G only so far) and moved onto different creations. Yet another example of my nomad habits! 


Anyway, I digress. For the last week or so, I have felt inspired to create a little abstract art. I have dabbled with this style of art a few times over the years, and it has always been full of surprises and lots of fun to create!

Does this type of art fit with my portfolio? Probably not – but for now at least – I have decided to stop worrying about it, and simply go with the flow. Creating art should be enjoyable after all! I will just keep it simple, and have different categories of art in my online stores.  

Precious, and semi-precious stones were my inspiration for this small series of four abstract works.

I have named them Crystal Bomb, and uploaded them to my Redbubble store. You can find them here if you’re interested in these designs.

I think they look pretty cool on home décor and fashion products. I have used various photographs, textures and digital processes to achieve the resulting art – I do hope you like them and my wandering art. 🙂




Thank you for visiting today…

Ultra Violet

Pantone has announced the colour of 2018, my favourite shade of purple – named PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet. This is a wild move from the fresh Greenery that dominated design during 2017. Going by last years success, we can expect to see lots of this gorgeous deep purple shade everywhere during 2018.
