I’m Iris, a London-based mixed media artist. I live in the heart of Bloomsbury with my beautiful family (husband, 2 kids & 1 cat).
My passion is art journaling for self-expression and self-discovery. My art practice is an extension of my wish to get to know myself better and through it find a deeper connection to others. I like to share online about how I live my creative life. I love using art and words to convey and understand my feelings as a human. In this I deliberately include the experience of difficult or ‘taboo’ emotions and times when being creative is a struggle.
Through sharing authentically (and walking the talk, so to speak) I hope to inspire my students to look further and go deeper with their art, irrespective of whether they are a beginner or more experienced, so they can follow their inner creativity and get closer to their true selves.
In my spare time I like to sing in my choir, go roller blading, play video/board games and find the perfect gin cocktail. I’m currently obsessed with: my junk journal, cadmium red deep, fluorescent pink, wall paint, brayers, a 7H pencil and my red Prismacolor pencil.
Here is a look at Iris’s style:
