📣HOW TO FIND YOUR VOICE AS AN ARTIST:
This is one of the hardest but most important things to do as an artist. Your voice is what you’ll use to market, sell, and share the why behind your work with others... But how does one actually find what they want to say about themselves, their art, and why they paint? 🤔
Well I’ll tell you: you find your voice by mimicking others. 👏🏻 In the same way we learn to read, write, and paint, finding your voice is done through observation, mimicking, and trial + error. You must act on what you think connects with you before you’ll know if it doesn’t! So without further ado, here are my top 3 suggestions for finding your voice:
1. Make a list of the top 5 most influential moments/events in your life. Write down why the impacted you and the feelings behind them. How do these affect the way you paint / run your business?
2. Think about the problem you want to solve with your art. Describe it in detail and write up a description of the person who is looking for the solution you offer.
3. Identify what obstacles stop you from being confident in your art + yourself. In what ways can you show up and share anyway?
Dive into your creative process thoughts and mull them around in your mind. Your voice is deeply engrained in you and WILL align with your core reasons, I promise you have one that’s as unique as you. BUT you’ll only find it by consistently looking for it and testing out what you think may be it. I’ll go more in depth on this topic in my stories later today! So drop any questions you may have below!❤️

Вот что получится, если взять украшение, макро-линзу на телефоне и включить свет настольной лампы 💗
Спасибо, @soroka.me - эти серьги потрясающие 💕
This is one of the new designs we are doing for the end of the year. It´s called SUPER BLOUSE CHECK BLACK ETHNO and is a sophisticated Jerseyblouse tailored by us with lots of neckline varieties done by tapes, relaxed falling, black square, hand-drawn scribble animals and zickzacks in white and black. It represents the new kind of style we are looking for and how we as a brand are developing lately. Of course, as all our products. This is handmade in Berlin and you can find it in our online shop or in our atelier in Berlin Mitte
Swipe or read below for information if you’re coming to my show tomorrow!! 🍊✨💗 “Fruit and Feelings” — my first performance art piece — is tomorrow night at The Taylorton, located at 2101 S Preston St which is across the street from Zanzabar!! (Doors at 7, show at 7:30!) Just a few reminders: - I would like this event to be as sober as possible, no alcohol will be available at the event space. - Please enter in the BACK through the garden gate, not the front door, to be respectful of Jordan and Lauren for letting me use their space and the pup that is nervous about strangers. - There will be time after the performance for sharing thoughts, feelings, reactions, and any fruit/food themed thoughts, writing, or song you might want to share. - No pets please unless you have specifically arranged that with Jordan and Lauren prior to the event. There will be food involved in the show that is not safe for dogs to eat and I want pups to be safe.
Thank you for the support!! 💗✨

Encouraged by his grandmother, Kuu Yukio started to create Papercutting in 2017 and post them on Instagram.
Inherited from his grandfather, with highly skillful fingers, he creates elaborate and fine paper-cutting artworks, mainly "曼荼羅" Mandala.
How many days until Christmas 2019? Santa says 40 sleeps! 🎄 Looking for inspiration for our local Habitat for Humanity Gingerbread House Contest and Silent Auction. Found this traditional example a while back at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT. What should I make - traditional? whimsical? magical? ❤️💚❤️
When there's nothing in your mind, pieces like this come out. Today I prepared myself to do whatever come to my mind and not panic. I was actually trying to test some beautiful paints sent to me by @sakuracolorproducts (no, it's not sponsored post don't worry 😁)
I realized today sometimes not having a plan is the plan actually. Sometimes not having a schedule is the schedule we needed.
SWIPE 👉🏻 to see my the first Pomeranian that I stitched back in 2015! I remember being so proud of Dez’s portrait when I finished it. Malia’s portrait isn’t finished yet, but I couldn’t resist doing this comparison!
There is about 4 years and 600+ pet portraits between these two embroideries. Going by conservative time estimates, there is also about 6,700 hours of practice between them!
So here is proof that you can be good at anything if you just put the time and effort into it and have a bit of patience. We all have to start somewhere!
ALSO, fun fact, I sold Dez’s portrait for $80 and at the time I felt like I was on top of the world! 🙏🏻💜
