BOOK YOUR SESSION DISMISS MESSAGE

My name is Iris, I am 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. I love inspiring people to look further and go deeper through art, so they can really follow their inner creativity and find a deeper understanding of themselves.

I love making raw and emotional art that is about process more than result. When I make art I want to feel something, and it is so gratifying when my art evokes feelings in others.

You can often find me at my art desk pursuing my many arty interests like art journaling, abstract painting, playing with art supplies and making mini journals.

Currently my favourite art supplies are: fluorescent pink everything, cadmium red deep, off white & teal paint, Daniel Smith watercolours in Lunar Black, a brayer, black fineliner and red pencil.

Expressive Mixed Media Journalling

As creative entrepreneurs we often would like to ‘let go’ and follow our intuition more, both in our personal life and in business. While this is a beautiful concept, it is something I have often felt frustrated by because it can feel scary and like it doesn’t fit in with the more transactional nature of business or being successful. In this workshop I will guide you to let go and work from intuition in a creative context. We’re going to explore through art that which we want to call into our personal and professional lives. Art is a wonderful playground where we can practice things like: being brave, letting go of expectations, making bold choices and making mistakes. We will address some of the blocks that often come up (‘I’m not very creative’, ‘I can’t draw’, ‘I don’t have time for creativity’), try to understand their function and honour them without letting them control us.

I want to demystify what art for self-expression is and what you can do to get started so you can get the most out of it. Not to create someone else’s art or to simply ‘create something pretty’, but for you to create YOUR art and express what YOU want to express. We all have it in us, we just need a bit of knowledge and encouragement to allow it to come out.

We will focus on practical knowledge and techniques that will form the basis of being able to ‘let go’ and let your inner voice speak. We will explore some of the more popular art supplies, learn about colour & contrast and get our hands dirty so we can make fun and colourful art journal pages.

I will be bringing along my completed and in-progress art journals and sketchbooks for you to get inspired by and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions about supplies, techniques, inspiration, style development etc.

"I attended Iris’s workshop at Jodee’s Tepee Weekender 2018 and soooo enjoyed it! I am a self-professed ‘non-arty’ person. The most involved I get in art is sticker books with my children and cleaning up glitter!!! To be honest I was a bit nervous about the workshop but Iris was fantastic! She really made me feel I could just have a go and enjoy it without the pressure of getting it ‘right’ or ‘perfect’. I loved the pieces I produced and they are proudly up in my home office. I would highly recommend working with Iris, not only is she a fantastic and inspirational artist she is also a lovely lovely person." – Emma Dredge

This workshop will help you bridge the gap between your inner creativity and your conscious self so you can access all the magic that is inside you and bring it into everything you do.

Working With Me 1on1

I would love to work with you in a private workshop session!

Each 1on1 will be completely bespoke and tailored to your individual needs. We will liaise beforehand via email and a Zoom call so I can get a good idea of where you’re at, what you’d like out of our session and how I can help you take things forward.

Coaching for creative entrepreneurs

Does the mention of business planning, productivity and social media strategy make you want to hide your head under the covers? When you run a business that is based on your creativity, it can be easy to spend a lot of time on the right brained activities and forget about all those important practical things that need to happen in order to drive your biz forward. 

I can help you with this! I have been running a creative filming business for 12 years and more recently have turned my passion for art into a business. This uniquely positions me to help you bring the creative and the practical together. I’m an analytical thinker and I will help you get clarity where you feel overwhelmed! We will work together to identify your goals & what might be holding you back. Then we will put together practical and attainable steps so you can start achieving those goals. I will help you get excited about productivity and hold you accountable so you can get your message and offering out to your ideal clients! 

Iris helped me identify areas in my business that would improve my productivity and then helped me decide which systems to put in place to enable me to track things more effectively. I’ve found it has reduced the amount of time I need to spend on the business tasks which leaves more time for making art! She has plenty of fantastic ideas, gained from her years of experience running her own creative business. Working with an artist who understands that sometimes we think differently was really helpful – I’ve tried many ways of tracking and planning my business in the past but Iris is the first coach to understand my needs and offer ideas that suit my creative (and somewhat undisciplined!) mind. I look forward to working with her again and recommend her highly for coaching if you are an artist or crafter. – Natalie Day

Self-expression & self-discovery through art

How can you use art to discover more about yourself and express that which you really need?

Similar in subject matter to the group workshop but with the opportunity for us to work really closely together with a completely bespoke learning trajectory in a more intimate setting.

Recommended if you are ready & willing to be truthful with yourself and open to having big discoveries. This might get emotional!
