Benin Bronze Leopard Head

Hello all! I hope you are well?

I have mostly been looking for new areas to move to, and I am happy to say that I think i have found the perfect area!! It only took 2 years of searching lol.

I will share more details when I actually move though!!

I recently updated my Artefacts Art Journal with this new painting of a Bronze Leopard Head, it was made in the Kingdom of Benin, West Africa sometime around the 17th century…

I spotted it at the British Museum along with a number of other Benin Bronzes, I made a video on the whole of the African Galleries a few years ago which I have linked below…

Life Book 2018 YAY** All Change Is Good

Hey all! I have finally started Life Book 2018!! YAY it was a delayed start whilst I launched my greetings cards and my new paper hospitality products.. so pleased I completed this!!

This bear presents a very good message that ALL CHANGE IS GOOD.. change can be hard especially when it takes you out of your comfort zone, and initially we want to put out heads in the sand and avoid all discomfort. But its amazing how the act of change itself can be really nourishing and fortifying in the long-term, especially when it is done in consistent little steps :)

Painting video with voice over -‘Inner Strength”

Hello everyone, I hope you are well?

I finished adding a voice over to my painting ‘Inner strength’ which was completed a few months ago. This painting features a solar plexus chakra and in the video I explain why I have used this symbol.

I hope you enjoy the video :)

Finding Peace – Music/Art video

Hello!! I decided to make a new format of painting fast forward video which is more like a music video. I used to mix live visuals at events when I started my creative journey and it was fun to incorporate some of thos clips into a painting fast forward. The music is ‘I Saw You’ by Black Sun Empire

I’ve always loved Drum and Bass music, mostly because it is hectic and chaotic, which weirdly enough makes me feel more relaxed..  lol

As a little bonus here is one of the first videos I ever produced! It was filmed at a warehouse party callled the ‘Ministry of Unsound’ which was run by a freind, we had some amazingly wonderful times there!!

Getting stuff done :)

Hello everyone! I hope you are well? I feel that I am finally on top of things after months of planning, preparing and creating.

I managed to create and launch a new website for my paper designs! It will see me expand from offering digital cutting files to providing finished products to the hospitality market. I am sooo excited!! :)

I also redesigned my website www.joanneseale.com to include new sections on my paper designs and my new greetings cards!!
I’ve been making greetings cards from my artwork for quite some time but have never made them available for use, more details will follow in a later post.

TBT** Ostara carrying the springtime in her hair :)

I made this painting several years ago when I had just starting painting, it was part of a Life Book 2014 lesson taught by Tamara Laporte, I made my version into the goddess Ostara and she is carrying the springtime in her hair!! I love this painting so much, I might even turn it into a greetings card!! :)
