SNEAK PEEK : THE TABLE
First of all, welcome lovely people,
This is my first blog post ever, and I am so excited to be embarking on this journey, which I have dreamt about for years .. and I’m even more excited that I am sharing it with you guys 🙂
So the journey I’m going to take you on is all about making your spaces beautiful.
Why? Well, I believe with all my heart that when our surroundings – those spaces where we live, eat, sleep, work in – are well taken care of, we take better care of ourselves, and by extension, those around us.. it’s all about Love.
As those ‘special few’ who have signed up for my newsletter already know, the first part of this journey will be a series of art prints which I will be releasing very soon (if you wanna be the ‘special few’ sign up here).
These art prints, which are limited edition, are of original paintings which I have been very carefully crafting especially for you.
The artwork was inspired by my dressing table… I don’t often study my dressing table, however I was stuck at home during a snowstorm with no place to go so I used it as an opportunity to spend some quality time with my sketchbook (a bit nerdy I know).
I love unique pieces of jewelry, tribal pieces, patterns and random everyday objects, which are plentiful on my table.
When I developed the series of “snowstorm sketches” into a body of artwork, I used collage techniques, and lots of “found objects” I collected or kept when I recently moved house. I always wonder if I can give an object a second life before throwing it away.
You’ll notice an Arabian influence – this is inevitable, as my roots are Arabic and I love using the local natural olive soap – the wrappers of which frequently make appearances in my artwork. You’ll also notice some strong tribal elements from one of my favourite necklaces, I really enjoyed working with these geometries and they inspired me to create a few patterns too.
You’ll notice a raw feeling to my work, also inevitable as I spent a good chunk of my creative life in Brooklyn, New York, and love the grit and the rawness of the city…
I carefully finish the edges of each and every canvas I work on, and often use torn paper or ripped fabric in my compositions and mix them in with layers of paint, discarded objects, and sometimes 80’s style earrings (I was an 80’s child and had a very.. ummm.. “vibrant” collection of earrings)..
So, without further ado, here are a few “sneak-peeks” of the work I have doing…. I have 3 days to go to release the collection, (and we know God is in the last-minute details)!
Of course, I would love to hear your thoughts, and if you would like to receive exclusive offers and be the first to know what’s happening at SandiStyles, you can sign up to be on my list of the special few here.
Here’s to a Beautiful Life.
Cheers for now,
