You may or may not know that as well as being the person behind this website, writing tutorials and how-tos for arts and crafts projects, I make my own art.
I guess it makes sense… it would be kind of weird if I spent all this time talking about all kinds of creative stuff and then didn’t do it myself, right?
If you’ve followed any of my arty tutorials, you know that I don’t really go in for highly realistic techniques. I love the expressive and the abstract, and so that’s what I’ve been working on.
I find it really freeing not to worry about fine details. It’s actually helped me loosen up a little during my creative time and not be such a perfectionist. And that can only be a good thing for someone like me!
The techniques used in this kind of abstract art mean the exact results can be hard to predict. At first I thought I might have a few control issues with this, but I learnt to relax and let go… eventually! Now I actually embrace it.
If you’re looking for an abstract pop of colour to go on your wall, take a look at some of the art available to buy in my Etsy store. I’m working on more all the time, and trying to make pieces in a range of different sizes too.
All the canvases come finished with a gloss sealant and are ready to hang. They’re also signed and dated on the back.
Thanks for checking out my art and supporting me and Birch & Button!
