Inspired by Martina Voigt Schmid - a series featuring artists whose work inspires me to develop my own

My ‘Inspired By’ posts began as a way to explore what makes me tick as an artist, what I’m drawn to, what makes my heart sing, what I might want to try out in terms of marks or colour combinations or compositions. They are also a way for me to share the work of artists whose work I love. I don’t advocate copying other artists instead of making our own work, however inspiring they are to us, but I do believe that we can learn from each other on our solitary artist journeys. This website is dedicated to the philosophy that you have a significant and unique offering inside you, waiting to be released. I created a course to help you with this very thing, which you can find by clicking here. May you be inspired to bring forth what’s within you!

I’ve been following Martina’s blog for quite a while now. I love her paintings!

She is actually the editor of a parenting magazine in Germany, but trained as a painter.

I love the colours, the thick lines and the flattened perspective.

And of course the mixed media collage elements!

I’m so inspired I don’t even feel the need to say very much! Must be a first.

I might have to try a few of these techniques though.

Got class to do first though. (ClassES actually.)
