Have you ever discovered an artist whose style you just loved but weren't sure if any of their currently available pieces would fit into your home or collection? Before you work up the courage to commission your own artwork, there are a few important things you should think about...
As an artist and an entrepreneur, it can be difficult at times to stay motivated and keep pushing yourself forward. After all, you have no one to tell you what to do or when to do it, no one to answer to if you decide to slack off, and no one to bounce new ideas off or to offer you advice if you hit a mental or creative wall. Over the years I’ve discovered a few key things that help me stay motivated, grounded and on track.
I think one of the most common questions people have for artists is where they get their inspiration from, and of course, every artist is going to have a different answer. In fact, you may even get different answers from the same artist depending on the days you ask or the mood the artist is in at that particular moment! There are so many things that inspire my work, so I thought I would share just a few of them here.
When it comes to social media, Instagram is one of my favourite platforms because it’s all about the visuals, which is definitely important for an artist! I use Instagram as a daily artist’s diary to share what’s going on in my studio, what inspires me, and the progression of my paintings from sketch to finished product.
While every one of my paintings has a special meaning to me, the Marina Bay Sands piece sticks out as one of my favourites, and also a favourite with many of my clients.
