ArtPopper Welcomes Caroline Ashwood.

April 19th, 2016

ArtPopper Welcomes Caroline  Ashwood.

ArtPopper would like to welcome Caroline Ashwood to our select team of creative and talented artists.

Caroline is a full time artist from Yorkshire in England. Her studio, Soar Works is where she gets "physical with the paint and canvas".

Her work has been described as visceral and spontaneous, her painting relying entirely on her instincts. Caroline sometimes uses her hands to work the paint around the canvass surface, continually moving the artwork back and forth to keep the colours flowing.

Through her work, Caroline is constantly exploring the relationship between colour, light and form in order to discover a visceral impact in the luminance, shapes and hues of mother nature.

Welcome to ArtPopper Caroline.

Artpopper Welcomes Jayne Evans

Introducing London artist Jayne Evans.

Jayne graduated in Graphic Design at Swindon College of Art and Design. She now paints from her garden studio in North London.

As a major creative influence for her work Jayne uses her subconscious mind, moving between beautiful, lyrical, dream inspired paintings and vivid, surreal, dynamic Pop Art.

Jayne is inspired by fairytales, literature, film, graphic novels and music. She is fascinated by the power of the imagination. Her mixed media paintings interpret her subconscious experiences in strong, visceral images, capturing the enchanted world of dreams and fantasy.

Welcome to ArtPopper Jayne.

ArtPopper Welcomes Lee Stuart

Lee Stuart has lived in Scotland for the last 16 years but originally from East London.

ArtPopper Welcomes Lynne Reeves

Lynne Reeves is an artist who thinks outside the box. Her work is influenced by both the 70's and the psychedelia of the 60's. Lynne also loves the Art Decor style and often creates in an 'off-the wall' Folie Bergere' style.

Lynne creates using pens and crayons adding colours with anything that comes to hand. (feathers, leaves, dried acrylic paint, cosmetics, old teabags, oil, pastels, etc etc). She subtlety adds pastes and gels into the mix into a melange of creativity.

Lynne calls her style Big Colourful Hair Art, a style she discovered when doodling with her grandson.

Yes, Lynne's art is all about thinking 'outside the box'.

Emerging Artists - Some Advice.

September 17th, 2015

Emerging Artists - Some Advice.

Here's some advice for all you emerging artists out there who keep asking me, “How do I get noticed when I'm just starting out?”

Firstly.

You should try everything. At least once.

Join all the online art communities and social media sites you can. Seek out open calls for emerging artists from art galleries, exhibitors and art magazines. Enter all the art competitions you can find. Exhibit your work in online exhibitions. Submit your work to your local art associations and committees.

You will learn a great deal from doing these things. You'll start to get noticed.

Secondly.

Pay nobody to show your work! There are so many “pay to show” art sites around nowadays. They're scams. They are not worth the time of day nor your time, your energy or hard earned money.

Don't think “maybe this is my big break” or “who knows who I might meet” or “the exposure!” The chances of any of those things happening are about as close to zero as you can get. The problem with almost all of these “pay to show” sites is that the only people who ever visit them are like you, emerging artists.

If an online gallery really wants to promote you then it's because they believe in you and can sell your work. These galleries will show your work for free.

Yes of course they take a percentage of the sale proceeds but only after your work SELLS!

Thirdly.

Create something every day. Even if it’s just a drawing. This will keep you ‘in the groove’ and stimulate the creative part of your mind. I produce something creative every day, normally scribbles in Photoshop but at least it's something.

Fourthly.

Try things that are outside of your comfort zone. Like painting sunsets? Try painting a pop art portrait, or something surreal or abstract. Have you always painted BIG? Then do something small. Think Fabergé egg, create small as small can go.

Finally and most importantly.

Always remember you are not like any other artist, not in style nor in technique. Appreciate what you have done so far, as an individual. Look at your progress.

Have vision. Look at your art. Look at where you are. As an artist.

Your mission? To get where you want to go. So start planning.

And that's right.....you are amazing, believe in yourself.
