Today it is my pleasure to introduce the next Lulu Art Design Team Member for 2017.
Introducing Idiana Clausell from IdianasCreations. Idiana is known for her beautiful mixed media artwork using embellishments and 3d objects. The texture in her artwork means that you not only want to view her work, but touch it also.
I asked Idiana to tell me about herself and asked her a few questions over a virtual coffee.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do.
I have lived in Denver CO for over 10 years with my amazing husband and our cat TicTac. I love everything about all crafts and diy. I am always snapping pictures and thinking about my next project. My style is whatever I feel like doing at that time, from shabby chic to steampunk. I like to think outside the box and create on the spot. My hands always have paints, inks, and/or glue on them no matter the occasion.
How/when did you get interested in art?
Since a child my mother was always doing some sort of craft. Just watching her and wanting to learn more sparked my interest.
Can you remember one of the first things you drew or painted?
In my art class in high school I remember was a sunset scene with watercolours. It was not my best!
What’s you favourite piece of work that you have created?
I did an altered liquor bottle with crackle paint and a ton of embellishments. It turned out very shabby chic and elegant.
Do you have a favourite artist?
I love all different types but I get my inspiration mostly from Anna Dabrowska.
What’s the best thing about being an artist?
Creating anytime I want to and customising everything. I also enjoy it when others like my work and want to learn.
Do you like to have music playing while you create and if so, what kind of music do you to that inspires you?
No I am usually watching youtube and getting inspiration from other artist.
What is your favourite thing that you often include in your work?
I love adding a splatter of colour as the finishing touch.
What do you like to do when you are not creating?
Cooking is my other hobby since eating is not considered a hobby. I love food and trying new flavours and from all types of cultures. Learning to make .
What are your favourite products to use?
Liquitex inks and pouring medium. Anything Prima and Ranger. Also random embellishments I find.
Do you have any tips or inspiring words to share?
You do not make mistakes on art, you make art out of mistakes.
Do you have any upcoming online or offline classes where we can enjoy learning from you?
Not at the moment.
Where can we view your work?
