This month I was asked to write an article about whose art influences me. As an artist this made me think and question, am I an artist or a crafter? I have been a crafter for many years and have recently crossed the line from crafter to artist in some of my art work.
Colours and nature definitely influence my mixed media art work. I love to blend colours, create texture and experiment with different mediums and Powertex products are perfect for this.
I love the work of Maria Fondler-Grossbaum (Abyssimo). Her work has such great texture and depth to it, blending colours and creating beautiful, bright pieces of art.
People who inspire others to ‘give it a go’ inspire me along with those who have such great enthusiasm about art and craft. Kirsty Allsopp and Marta Lapkowska are people who I enjoy watching and learning from.
I would love to hear who influences you. What has led you to create pieces of art, maybe a photograph or even a piece of music?
Bye for now, Jill x
