TOME Shirt

Created a little bit of magic with Artisans River Bennet and Leanne Thomas.  How can one have so many creative’s around them?! I can't believe the magic we created in only a few short moments on a Tuesday afternoon. Riv came over for tea and talk with mum and I. Talking all things art and design, overwhelmed and in tears about the
creativity that comes from this world.  

Brands like Gucci and Celine are leaving us all jaw dropped as they roll out more and more originality. People like Frida Kahlo and Henri Matisse stepped out and created something different and are now heroes both in and out of the art world. A close friend, Lois has a million of the most timeless ‘little black dresses’ in every colour and cut – we are in conversation over Insta direct about what we are inspired by and always daring each other to dress more how
we really really want to.
Creativity is all around us. 

Riv and I took these photos in my back garden, I then handed them to mum who added something special. I think the flowers are a perfect expression of the outburst of creativity that is all around us and coming at us from all different directions. It can be a lot to take in and almost make us feel like we have to compete and be the best. “All eyes on us” kinda thing. But really, living that way seems like it takes away the true artist in us. You aren’t able to truly speak for yourself.

...I love how Erwin McManus translates this in his book The Artisan Soul,  “The only art we create is that which authentically reflects who we are. Our soul is the material for all we create”
