NEXT Creativity Awakening Seminar to take place at Chester Art Centre on 21 February between 6:30 PM and 8 PM (onwards). For those who couldn’t attend the previous ones there is still an opportunity to get creative ! 🙂
Theme of the night: Overcoming FEARS (of rejection, failure, reproach).
This time we will focus on fears, insecurities and uncertainties.
‘Why do you want to paint? Why are you spending all this money on crafting materials? Have you got nothing else to do?’
The answer is very simple: because it makes us happy! There is nothing wrong with wanting to make stuff, being creative and trying different things. Unfortunately, so many of us are too scared of not being good enough, not finding appreciation or feeling we would have to ‘justify’ our desires to others around us.
Stop feeling guilty and sacred. Embrace your creativity – whether you are secretly writing poems (and then hiding them), or would like to take on acting/painting/photography/knitting/wood carving (or ANYTHING creative!).
Join us for an informal seminar based on a chapter from my course, meet like-minded people with the same difficulties and find the ways to change the things you want to change.
We DO have SOLUTIONS! 🙂
Looking forward to seeing you there!

Pretty much everyone who has ever visited Chester Art Centre will have met me – I am usually the one hosting art exhibitions, organizing stuff, running around and figuring things out. Most of you will have asked me at some point if I did any art myself and I will have answered, “I do a bit of art photography, but I don’t have much time to do my own art because I’m always so busy”.
Well, actually, I have been doing quite a lot of art photography in the past couple of years as it turned out! In between the exhibitions, my 2 businesses and everyday life I have managed to snap away somehow. I have been doing some group shows now and again but not solos. And now this is finally happening! I have decided to celebrate my Birthday in style, with my art exhibition preview, to which you are of course invited! It’s hard to believe that the gallery will be filled with my own pictures next month as I honestly couldn’t imagine that I’d have time to plan everything and to do it properly. As a matter of fact, I don’t… :). But I’m doing my best with the time given…
‘Labyrinth’ is an exhibition showcasing some of my favourite pictures. I tend to dislike a lot of my photography and always think that I could have done better. I will let you know if I ever do – but for now, you are welcome to come and see my crazy world captured through a lens of a camera and printed on the finest quality Giclee printer (which we’ve got right here!) as I see it every day. I hope you will like it or at least find it interesting! My exhibition will run from the 10th until the 19th of October.
A special THANK YOU goes to Bryn Sutcliffe and Mark Edmonds, who have been encouraging me to keep doing art (sometimes even forcing me slightly – Bryn! Naughty!). You most probably have met them too – Bryn is our artist in residence and master framer and Mark exhibits his beautiful art with us, sometimes helps around the gallery and paints our walls from time to time! They have been incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about my pictures and without them two, I probably wouldn’t have had taken that many photos and definitely wouldn’t have been exhibiting now. Love you guys! The rest of Chester Art Centre crew have been fantastic too – cheers everyone for your support and for believing in me! 🙂
So, yes, it is happening. Save the date and join us all at Chester Art Centre for a few Birthday drinks, Italian nibbles and some arty photos on the 14th of October between 5 PM and 9.30 PM! I really look forward to seeing you there.
