About This Class

Are you wishing to explore and express yourself in your Art?!

This class is part of a series and it has been devised to help you discover your Inner Artist! through emotive Art techniques; whether you are a complete beginner to a professional Artist or Designer the concept to produce a visual unique Mood board  is not directed by the traditional techniques of creating an art piece, but we shall seek a personal journey to discover initial ideas and learning curves from our own experience; through this class it will allow you to find out about your preferences, choices, new learning techniques in producing your very own finished piece! and may even take you on a artistic path you have never explored before!

Moodboards are an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text/quotes, poetry and sketches etc which are intended to evoke or project a particular style, expression  or concept prior to your starting your Artwork.   They are invaluable for Artist/designers/Interior Designers and are used in the industry;  but whether you are complete Amateur or Professional, learning emotive techniques with my class will enable you to express yourself on a different level and place you and who you are in the centre of your Art project.

'The Meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose is to give it away' - Pablo Picasso

I love this saying because it expresses who I am!

I love to create and see the outcome of my work, then to give that to someone, what do I get from it? satisfaction, joy, happiness and the gift back of a smile or joy from the receiver that they can take pleasure in it or learn from it....that is why I am here, to teach and pass on the great joy of discovering a new you, experience or technique!..... in giving, we receive and for me that is a two way journey as a student and as a teacher.

My background...well I am a Surface Pattern Designer/Illustrator and Artist, Accredited Art Therapist and qualified Adult Further Education Teacher and I am also a qualified Interior Designer and lover of new beginnings, crafts, adventures, my family, little friends in fur coats (my cats) the countryside, travel and I am a savoury-tooth! (I think I just made that up, as opposite to sweet-tooth!)

I am passionate in creating a living space with colour, texture, shape and using patterns to express who I am and to create a positive emotional effect on the environment; that's why exploring and being inspired by my surrounding enthuses me to create and express my love of design in surface pattern designing and Artworks and in Art Therapy, taking the natural and simplistic details of life to the extraordinary creative expressions in becoming something that expresses my inner-self and to create a piece for someone to love and cherish. I want to help you do the same! 

Please do say Hi, I would love to hear from you and I hope you get as excited, enthused and expressive with my inspiring Classes as I do and I would love to walk with you in your skillshare journey together in my classes! :0)
