A blog post every day for 30 days
I have set myself a challenge to write a blog post every day for 30 days….. Starting today!
Starting with a brief introduction, my name is Helen, I am an artist and live in the UK. I studied art craft almost 25 years ago and have been practicing ever since. I work across mediums but share mostly my ceramic creations. I like to also sketch and paint (watercolours and acrylics) and photography/videography is also an interest.
Inspiration for my work is constantly changing, I do not stand still for long. Re-occurring themes are houses, landscapes, the coast, seasons and the weather. I always listen to music when throwing on the pottery wheel.
My art practice is done alongside my day job as an Occupational Therapist. I need the social contact as well as the quiet making time.
The best advice I’ve been given and share is to follow what you are passionate about, do not to feel constrained sticking to one medium, instead experiment and play. And make because you love it, not others or money – it will show in the work!
