Hellooooo : )
Woooooooshhhhh what a roller coaster of a week. Right lets start at the beginning Tuesday saw the start of my freelance project with ArtWorks. The theme is healthy living under the topics body image, emotional wellbeing, physical aliments, diet and exercise, spiritual health and mental health. I am predominately working with older muslim women and some teenage muslim girls. The whole aim of the project is integration between two generations. Via skill sharing so I am getting the younger girls to teach the older ladies how to use computers, the internet and Microsoft word changing fonts and colours on texts and images. In return the older ladies will show the girls how to sew and do certain embroidery techniques. The groups will explore a theme though mood boards with a view to make a paper mache bodice. Which we will decorate with textile type embellishments I will demonstrating textile techniques such as knitting, free machine embroidery, textile encapsulation among others. Here are some examples of my work which I have shown to the group. Hope you like : )

So as promised a new artist HUMAD YASIN!!
His work consists of paintings, detailed drawings and fun canvas peices. His most recent work consists of writing peoples names or messages in their own respective language. I find his work bright and refreshing his use of of colour is imaginative yet thoughtful towards the subject matter or text. Humad finds inspiration from music, culture, literature and his friends.
Check out some of his canvases really hope you like them : )
P.s If there is anything thats you would like done or painted then if you get in touch via email I will pass on his contact details, he has no problem posting work out to buyers.
