Welcome New Art Friends!

Hello, my Friends!
I have a very special post for you today! :)
I have the pleasure to introduce two very special Ladies who will be joining my Creative Team in March!
Please, give them a loud cheer and a very warm welcome and get ready to be seeing some breathtaking Art coming soon...

First, I'd like you to meet Gayle - a wonderful lady from Australia with whose art works I have been seriously in love for a very long time...


She has a unique sense of color and every time she shows a new piece, I am blown away with all the deep meanings and messages enchanted in such beautiful forms...

Just to give you an idea and to make you fall in love, too - we'd like to show you two pieces created by Gayle that she says are very true to her and that represent her wonderful style:



Now you know what I mean, don't you? :)
Wanna know more? Here's a short interview:

Gayle Price

1. From: South Australia
2. Always on my work table: pretty much always a mess. Amongst it: gesso, gel medium, sharp scissors, cutting knife, patterned papers and napkins, stencils and stamps
3. Favorite color palette: I love all color as long as it’s rich and deep, but I guess I’m drawn more to cool colors - blues, greens, teal and turquoise
4. Favorite creations: journal pages, tags, (but not cards), layouts, canvases and working on wooden blocks
5. I am inspired by: many things… Other artists like Finnabair (of course), Dina Wakley, Flora Bowley. Nature, song lyrics and passages from books, and magazine pages also inspire me
6. When I see a blank page/canvas: I have to firstly add colour to it and secondly add pattern to it and I’ll work the rest out later
7. Cats or dogs? Cats
8. Tea or coffee? Tea and coffee, depending on time of day
9. Simple or messy? Messy
10. I'm dreaming about: A perfect world

Make sure you follow Gayle's blog and her facebook page. You can also find her on flickr and instagram.

And now - my second new wonderful Creative Team member - Olga.


I have known Olga for a while, her being a Polish girl, our paths had to cross. ;) But I'm so happy she agreed to join the Team and share her unique talent.
Olga's works are so close to my heart as I have a feeling she is a story teller just like me.
And the way she tells her stories is just exquisite!

Just take a look - here's a canvas Olga prepared for us and - of course - there is a story behind it. :)


Olga wrote: "This canvas is titled 'Poison Maiden' and depicts a bit vicious but still irresistable young lady. 
An alchemist’s workshop, a sorcerer’s cave or a chemical laboratory – aren’t these places tempting and full of mystery? For me, they certainly are.
As fate would have it, I don’t spend my days surrounded by stained retorts and dusty volumes but my passion for them still burns inside. So, my weakness for roots of chemistry and pharmacy took form in my very first canvas as a member of the team."


Isn't she just amazing?!
Our Creative Team "tradition" - a short interview:

Olga Siedlecka

1. From: western Poland
2. Always on my work table: in this kingdom of chaos one may find books, cups, toys, stains, gesso, glue, paints and journals
3. Favorite color palette: colors of a sunset sky, spilled on the horizon: cobalt blue, venetian pink, salmon, teal and vermilion as well as burnt vintage with its rusty tones and all fifty shades of grey :)
4. Favorite creations: mixed media canvases, collages, art journaling, upcycling and altered art
5. I'm inspired by: nature, fine art, literature, children's illustration, memories, reflections and found objects
6. When I see a blank page/canvas: I want to tell a story, not necessarily a fairy-tale
7. Cats or dogs? May I choose dinosaurs?
8. Tea or coffee? Both, sweet with milk
9. Simple or messy? Messy, simply
10. I'm dreaming about: a lot of light, no clouds

Olga's blog is THE place to observe! You can also make friends on facebook.

So now I hope you will leave a kind comment and welcome these two exceptional Artists in my Creative Team.
I think that you can't wait - just like me - to see their Art here soon!

Lots of hugs!
