Hello everyone! I hope you are well.
I’ve been managing to work on quite a few new paintings and paper projects recently, its so nice to be in the flow of creating again, it took quite a lot of effort to get back on track but hopefully it will be a smooth and interesting ride from here on in.
This painting was inspired by a Life Book 2018 lesson, I love the texture in the painting the curved forms and earth tones. I can’t say i’ve ever made a painting like this before but would like to make more!

Hello everyone! I hope you are well.
Hello, I’ve been sharing news of some great things that have been happening in my life over on Instagram and Facebook, so thought I’d also share those posts here :)
Firstly!! As you may know I am a bit of a secret gamer.. lol I started playing games in 2014 and was instantly hooked on The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim, I then went on to play Mass Effect 1-3, Dragon age 1-3, The Elder Scrolls Online, The Witcher and so on.
These are all massive RPG games that you can easily sink 100 or more hours into without ever getting bored. So when one of my favourite games developers Bioware release a new IP called Anthem I jumped straight on it.
What I didn’t expect was them to feature me on International Women’s Day in their Twitter stream. It really meant a lot to me and I’m hoping that Anthem will go from strength to strength as it really is a fun game
Secondly – I was approached by a well known film company who wanted to use some of my work in a soon to be released feature film directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Love Actually) whoooo!! its sooo exciting!!
And lastly! I managed to reach over 200 sales on my Etsy shop this March.. this has been a total ride and all I can say is “Follow your dreams” because “Everything is Possible” :)
Thats all for now, but I will be back soon with a fast forward video of myself painting ‘Girl Riding a Lion”
Hello, how is everyone today? I hope you are doing good!!
I recently finished this painting that was inspired by a Life Book lesson by Effy Wild! Although it looks nothing like the actual lesson…
I wanted to show how we all have an inner light that can either be hidden, or we can let it shine brightly, enhancing and illuminating our daily lives whilst also shining on the lives of others.
Sometimes this can be scary as we can be afraid of opening our true selves to the world for fear of disapproval, however one of my teachers, the amazing Lisa Nichols!!
Put it so perfectly when she said, ‘When your light shines too brightly for some people, just hand them a pair of sunglasses” I love that sooo much. :)
Here is a quick speed paint of the artwork which was originally posted on my instagram here https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale/
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!!
Hello everyone, I’m back with a new Watch Me Paint video.
This one features my recent painting called ‘I am whole’ and I talk about what’s been happening in my life and ‘wholeness’ :)
I hope you enjoy it!!
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 :)
