‘The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.’ – Pablo Picasso
Cherryblossom Tears is my little corner in which to daydream about art and nature. My blog is about art and my projects, which include sculpting and resin pieces, embroidery, art journaling, painting, sewing, and altered arts.
I began my blog in 2012 as a way of cataloguing my work. Five years later and it has become a reflection of my creative life; a dairy, tutorials and commentary on art in modern life such as city graffiti, galleries, museums and contemporary artists and art movements.
For me, art is about the process. I like to experiment with materials, ideas and styles. I am a tactile person who loves pattern, colour and nature. I also love to challenge myself; to try new things, even if it is a failure to start with! No one became good at something without trying. Making things gives me a sense of purpose and fulfilment and inspiring others brings me hope.
