To art lovers and art collectors -
Art and Patterns is my "Hub of Creativity', it's my online portfolio of handmade art and earring projects. Art has a positive effect on our mental welfare. I believe everyone can be creative, and find inspiration from viewing all types of art. I also blog to flex my writing muscles and practise my research abilities.
I create colourful abstract collages for your visual stimulation and blog to give you useful information.
Imagine this...you connect with the artist
You love the effort artists put into creating art and want to make contact with artists. You have blank wall spaces, in the living room, bedroom and office. Now is the time to take the plunge, connect with artists and fill your walls with art. In these days of global isolation, the best way to learn about the artist and make contact is to go online. Viewing artists' online portfolios and online exhibitions is a positive way of maintaining your emotional well-being. It is also a good way to be positive for the future. So here are 3 easy steps to take to connect with the artists and the work they are creating during days of isolation due to COVID-19.
Visit artists' website - it's free ( have a look through mine)
You can get to know an artist and their approach to creating art when you visit the artists' website.
If you know the name of the artist or the website, great, you can do a search and scroll through their website to get an understanding of how and why they create their work.
View their portfolios and online exhibitions to get a sense of the art style.
You learn more about the art process and understand why certain materials are used by the artist.
