Heloooooo… again

Hi everyone, it has been a bit tumbleweed here because I sort of switched to Instagram https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/ however I will be updating my blog, website and youtube channels over the next few weeks.

Life has been very hectic as I prepare for moving home.. I found a new area to move to and possibly a new property.

Hopefully…. all going well I will be able to share more details with you over the coming months… fingers crossed..

I am soo behind with my online art courses that I will be dedicating much of the early part of this year to completing my Jane Davenport courses and actually doing Life Book 2018 as I think I only made about 2 paintings from the whole course… terrible..

I’ve also been streaming video games on Twitch.. I started gaming in 2014 when someone introduced me to The Elder Scrolls – Skyrim.. and well what can I say.. I’m now a gamer.. if you want to keep up with my gameplay and chat etc, please hop over to https://www.twitch.tv/cymarin_twitch

Also having changed jobs 2 years ago I am currently working in a new part of London which has completely refreshed me, so much so that I started a new website dedicated to it.

Please head over to my new site Wonder London Life to keep up with my adventures in London!! https://wonderlondonlife.com

I also started a paper design site called Paper Hospitality Designs.. which you can find here https://www.paperhospitalitydesigns.com

So yeah, I have been really busy hence my no show on this blog but rest assured.. times they are a changing.. lol

I will be back!! Soon!!

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 :)

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 :)

New Painting** I Am Whole

This painting started out as a Life Book lesson on Frida Kahlo, but it sort of went in its own direction. I will be aking a video to explain this painting in more detail in the next few days.

New Painting * Rise From the Ashes

Hello everyone, I finished another Life Book inspired painting which I’ve named ‘From the Ashes’.
I painted it to explore the situations we can sometimes find ourselves in, when going through a hard time in life, we can feel destroyed, burnt to the ground in a pile of ash on the floor.
I wanted this painting to show how we all have the ability to rise from the ashes and renew ourselves, it takes courage, self-love and determination, but it is possible.

I talk about this more in the video linked below.
