What you'll do
Abstract Medicine 2 hr workshop : 1) Welcome. Candles lit, calming music in the background based in my studio in Soho, London. Introduction. 2) Intention. Set out a personal intention to the Universe. What would you like to attract? e.g: prosperity, love, healing. Mediums and materials; pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic, paper and mini gift canvas board. Variety of ethically sourced paper sizes. 3) Using colour therapy and form - According to your intention I will direct you to the exact matching colour vibration. This will act as your base note which you will paint across your paper. You can have more than one intention and several works on paper (max of 5 each). Once these sheets are all dry you will begin to create a free form shape in ink or pencil and subsequently paint in 3 colours of your choice, around/ inside this shape. This shape will act as the main subject taking up the majority of space on paper. The shape can be inspired or acquired. (Check pictures.) What you will learn: negative/ positive space, form, light and dark, tone, colour theory, brush stroke technique and patience :) Once your sheets dry you will pick one of them as a blueprint for your mini canvas board which makes a great festive gift!
I am a full time artist with over 12 years working in industry based between London and Los Angeles with museums and private collections worldwide. I have a Masters in Fine Art (Chelsea College of Arts), lived in Los Angeles for 4 years painting canvases and murals commissioned by the Council of Mar Vista, Santa Monica, for small local businesses and clients. I love collaborating with people and I love my job! My main passion is abstract painting. I love using a variation of hot and cold colour palettes, working with a theme, using acrylic, oil, watercolour, ink and graphite on canvas or paper. The intention behind my work is uplift. Next steps: Phd in Fine Art. I am here to empower you to make art that is colourful, happy and open you up to make mistakes. The results will be healing, informative and fun.
