As an Artist I work intuitively (in mixed media, acrylics, fabric, collage, stitch etc) and become deeply immersed in the process of creating my colourful, many layered 'visual stories’. I am drawn to the use of symbols (birds, cups, stars, ladders etc) to create dreamlike visual narratives. My sketchbook is an essential tool and I will have many of these to help share and show my process. I tend to work on many canvasses at once and I will be creating work during the open studios.
Creative Journaling Sessions
My art journalling sessions provide a space for your inner artist to come out and play – without worrying about the outcome. Art journalling is the perfect place to get started, find inspiration, explore, and get unstuck. I provide the prompts and materials - and you have complete permission to get as messy as you like. No drawing or painting ability is required. We use mixed media collaging techniques and combine writing with colour, drawing and painting. I offer an intuitive, layered approach, where you respond in each moment to your creative impulses. Being playful and having fun!
Art Journalling Can:
- Allow you to feel totally grounded, present and alive - bringing joy back into your life
- Set you free creatively as you make art without attachment to the outcome
- Take you into a calm, meditative space.
- If you do have a creative practice, it will break you out of your mould and expand your creative boundaries
- Clear out your busy mind so that you can be more productive in your work
- Help you generate ideas to solve challenges and get innovative - perfect as a team-building exercise!
What people are saying about Get Creative
"Wild Art Journalling with Moyra literally opened the doorway to my creativity that had been locked away for years and allowed it to flow like an inspired author ready to write the book of their life! This powerful process unblocked and made manifest my deep desires expressed on the pages of my journal and each week felt like a new chapter to dive into. I felt very inspired and guided by Moyra's gentle wisdom and passionate creativity."
“I just wanted to have fun and feel inspired while not under pressure to produce a work of art. I have found a home amongst a group of women who clearly love to leave whatever at the door and allow Moyra to guide us into a world of lines, squiggles, splodges, words, colours, dreams, meditations, visions, and doodles, which somehow get transported onto the pages in ways totally unique to each person, which is a wonder and a delight. There were no right or wrongs although I made many happy mistakes. If you are uninspired, bored or stuck, or lively, inspired and raring to go: come, join us - its not to be missed! Joyful, freeing and liberating.”

“I absolutely loved taking part in the workshops, it was everything I expected and more! Whilst I don’t consider myself to be naturally creative, I love using creative activities and techniques to inspire me and generate ideas for things I’m doing in my life or my business. The time flew by and I was nicely surprised by the results I got with different art techniques. Moyra is brilliant at facilitating the sessions, creating a really lovely relaxed atmosphere and encouraging loads of playfulness and expression with the art techniques. I would highly recommend Moyra’s Art Journalling for anyone looking for a bit of inspiration, relaxation and creativity." - Andrea Anderson, coach. www.aka- success.com.
"Moyra's superpower is holding space for the other to access their creative expression. Her gift is in her timing and non-dictatorial way of suggesting direction while seeing and encouraging the other...Moyra creates these delicious books that are full of creative explosions. A really cathartic and wholesome way to spend a morning that will help unblock and motivate you to bring more creativity and expression to your life."
