In March 2016, my Mum Joan Hudson and I created Yoga Spirit Art — an Etsy art shop, where we sell art prints designed by us both — influenced by yoga, meditation, and nature.
I have a degree in Fine Art, a background in creative communications and and I’m also a qualified yoga and meditation teacher. My Mum is a Yorkshire based artist, Fine Art & English graduate and ex art teacher. I see Yoga Spirit Art as a combination of passions and can’t wait to watch it evolve.
Our work is a mix of digital typography designs, illustrations and paintings — which are all available as giclee prints on Hahnemuhle matt fine art smooth bamboo paper, and as printable digital downloads.
And on that note, I’ll finish with a quote I like.
The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case. — Chuck Close
