Just over 2 years. Most days, either doing art myself or learning from other artists online such as YouTube tutorials.
Acrylic is what I would normally use, sometimes I would use watercolours. I enjoy painting landscapes.
I wanted to relax and keep my mind focused on something creative. Also, to stop my mind from thinking negatively and have a way of escaping negative aspects of life and living
I draw inspiration from other artists and the environment. Sometimes I like to paint about politics and things that have affected me in my life.
That we can help in raising funds for the project and help people who may not be interested in art. We get to practice our art whilst helping those in need. It’s extremely helpful as it has provided a space, safe environment and art materials. Since Covid-19 I have had nowhere to paint other than the cemetery and park. It’s so nice to come to the project and socialise with others.
I painted a flower as homage to the death of George Floyd. A woman helped me with my oyster card and my benefits at the council, so I drew the picture for her to say thank you. The dead leaf on the painting was to represent the loss of George Floyd.
It’s been wonderful. It has been so great having
Guan here and creating together, he helps me when I get stuck. I enjoy having
him to talk to and the social aspect of it all.
Anything I see I try to turn into art. Yesterday I made a necklace out of a butter knife handle.
Meeting Guan, a wonderful artist at HomeLess Made who has become my friend. I get my inspiration through people; it helps to push and encourage me.
Relaxation, it keeps my mind calm. Even when I don’t have a paintbrush, I will use my hands to paint with. I get a sense of achievement the more I paint. I do not want to give up on art, I want to do it till the end.
