Mixed Media

My love for mixed media has grown over the past 3 years. I just didn’t know it existed for some reason and through a series of events I’ve learnt new techniques, met amazing artists and taken some really inspiring courses along the way. I have given myself the space to experiment and grow as an artist determined to find out what my style was, or what mediums to specialise in.


I often worried about finding my place in the mixed media world and was encouraged by other artists who say there is a place for all of us to co-exist. Which is right, there is room and there are different styles of work out there waiting for licensing deals, books, exhibitions and much more. You’ve just got to believe in your work and with passion make inroads for yourself and along the way you will learn a variety of useful tools, tips that you can choose to apply and make your own or ignore.

  1. Hi, cutie! Thank you so much for following my bloggie! :) You're right, art is very personal. There aren't any rules to how media should be mixed or matched. *hugs*

    Happy Easter!
