Moniker International Art Fair

VERY excited about visiting the Moniker Art Fair at the London Docklands in October-and it’s my birthday so extra cool! This is much more of an urban Art Fair than most, nice and gritty with live street art around nearby locations!!

Ive visited Brick Lane for The London Tattoo Convention, the venue is amazing, love the intensity of it, despite the fact it’s flooded with light- perfect.

I love the juxtaposition of that urban style freedom of expression and traditional subject matter, I’m a big advocate of Bruce Lee’s theory of  “Using no way as way, having no limitation as your only limitation”- a concept that is notoriously harder than it seems to take on board, but I will continue to endeavour to try nonetheless.

Take my painting Amaelia, featured above- is the background created from the absorption of “urban” style freedom, or the manifestation of the energetic frequencies of a present soul energy? In my experience it could easily be either, but I enjoy painting with a complexity of message or as development tool- but also simply just because that’s what my painting has ended up being through simple enjoyment; I relate to and love pieces for the feelings they ignite in me- but also that the image pleases me and matches my colour scheme;  I enjoy using certain materials because they are relevant to the subject matter and have been carefully chosen, and also sometimes because I’ve just been gifted something I’ve never before used and I’m excited to try! None has anymore importance or relevance to me, as they all inspire an energetic reaction in the creation and the viewing of the final piece.

I’m not planning to exhibit this year- but watch this space for next?

    1. Hi, Thankyou! Sorry for the late reply. I’m pretty new to using a website and blogging, so much appreciate your support. It has been a busy year moving locations, a lot of organising, and have finally written my first book ‘My Beautiful Office’ so will have a lot more time to share my experiences, so please stay tuned!
      Best Wishes,

    2. Thankyou! I’ve customised it myself, from a set theme, then made some tweeks to improve on it. It’s so nice to hear you like my blog, after a busy time I’ve not been on as much as I’d like, but have some inspiring events right now that I’ll be sharing here very soon*)))

    1. Thank you for the kind words, it’s been a busy year but will be posting a lot of new and exciting stuff very soon. After attending the MindBodySpirit Festival at the NEC with Animistic Art it’s been very informative for new ideas, and meeting interesting people. I also have a new book to release so will be very active here with so many great things going on..Cheryl

    1. That’s great, so glad to be of help, and for you to bookmark my page! I will be sharing more features and news very soon!*..

  1. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    1. Hi, Thanks so much for your advice, I agree. I’m relatively new to this and really appreciate your input. I have just written book ‘My Beautiful Office’ which has a lot more in images and illustrations and considered in terms of spacing..I was so keen to share it, it wasn’t well thought out graphically. I certainly will go back to the blog posts and include more pictures with some time on my hands now for some editing. Again I really appreciate your time*

    1. Its great to hear from you and it’s been helpful, and thank you so much for book marking my weblog. Have some exciting things coming up so will sharing those soon!

  2. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually rarely do I encounter a weblog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    1. It’s a great to hear you like my page! I hope to now be sharing a lot more of my experiences, with a lot of exciting new things happening right now. I’m about to release my new book, and after a 3 day show at Birmingham National Exhibition Centre, it’s been wonderful to receive so much support for my art, idea’s, spiritual work, picking up on many animal guides, which was quite unexpected!
