Today we celebrate the ladies! Women of all sorts, from all backgrounds and all places. What does it mean to be a woman these days?
✧ Beauty within
And the list goes on... today we celebrate YOU ❁ Be proud of yourself and enjoy being in this beautiful moment in time, full of possibilities.
I do believe that women should be celebrated everyday, not just this one day which is why I’ll be highlighting women from all over in my posts and stories throughout the month of March. Who knows, you might just see yourself!
Sending warmth and strength to all you fierce and loving women out there!

Hi all art lovers! I'm back to talk about FORM ... which is the 3rd element in the elements and principles of art and design. If you missed the previous 2 posts over the last couple of weeks I touched on LINE and SHAPE (pop back and have a read if you like). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Unlike SHAPE which is flat and 2 dimensional (like a shadow) FORM is 3 dimensional, like the bird I drew above.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
SHAPE = FLAT
FORM = Dimensional⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Form takes up space and can give an artwork a sense of depth. Sphere’s, cube’s and pyramids have form and can be made to look like buildings, cars or any other object that has a place in the world, or the world of your imagination :) Sculptors would be particularly interested in form and how their 3-D objects exist in a space.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Henry Moore was a famous English sculptor who created semi-abstract sculptures. They are beautiful organic forms that look different from each angle you view them from. He would have been very interested in how FORM interacts with space, other objects, and the viewer. Check out his pieces like ‘Large Reclining Figure’ and ‘Double Oval’.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, keep your eyes peeled for any public art sculptures that may be close to where you live or on your daily commute. Stop and check it out the next time you pass by.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Artist Heidi Denessen doesn’t remember a time when she wasn’t creating. A mixed media artist, she makes masterpieces on canvas and fabric transforming the later into apparel that embodies the Whistler spirit. She embraces natural and recycled materials for her locally and ethically made clothing line. A savvy artist who has built her own business around her creativity, Heidi’s art is available at local markets, her online shop and the Gift Shop at the Maury Young Arts Centre."
