I began my art buisness in 2004 with only a handful of images.I am inspired on a daily basis by anything and everything!I get inspiration from other artists work, from flowers I see on my walks everyday, to lovely packaging or greetings cards in a gift shop.Or even childrens furniture or clothing catalogues I am always on the lookout, inspiration is everywhere!
I enjoy drawing faries and mermaids the most, but since starting the stamp buisness I am inspired by Alice and Wonderland and lots of childrens stories.I love fairy tales and would love to do a line of princesses.I work in pen and ink and then colour my images in photoshop, digitally.I am a huge fan of vibrant colour, as well as black and white imagery.
Over a year ago I began my blogging journey because it seemed the thing to do as as an artist, I began the blog to share my daily thoughts, inspirations and new artwork with my readers,back then there were only a handful.
What I didn't know then, was how many beautiful and creative friendships I would make along the way. Many of my blog readers have become friends (invisible as they may be) and have been a creative comfort and support group to me.I have also made friendships that have changed my life and the direction of my art career and for these I will always be greatful.
Thank-you, Sharon and I am happy that we made another creative friendship through blogging! Michelle x
