Hi guys, it's tuesday again so that means I've a new artist to share with you today...and though I feel like a judge on X Factor when I say 'I can't believe she's only twelve years old' it's true she is - talent knows no age limits, nor does following your heart =)
Tell us a little bit about yourself & what kind of artist you are.
Hi! My name is Maedhbh. I am twelve years old and I am in a family of four. I do mixed media art and sometimes I art journal. I also do things like DIY's and I like to use recycled materials.
What is the biggest challenge you personally face as an artist and how do you overcome it?
The biggest challenge is probably where I live and the small amount of supplies available, compared to America where you might have more supplies available. It is also hard because materials are quite expensive so I have to save up for a long time to afford certain ones.
What do you love most / least enjoyable about your art?
My favourite part of art is probably making things that turn out just right. When you make something that turns out just right you feel great! I don't like when you use a lot of materials and a lot of time and then your project doesn't turn out looking so great!!
Do you ever lose your mojo, and if so, how do you get it back?
If I ever lose my mojo I stop doing art for a few days and look at Youtube tutorials and read blogs for inspiration. Then I go back and try some of the things I saw. This usually helps me.
Tell us where can we find out more about you & your art?
You can find out more about me and my art on my blog.
I am also on Youtube as Maedhbh Spain.
That you for sharing Maedhbh, I'm so impressed with your work and sincerely hope you carry on with your art through the coming years. I had a comment on a video today (yes I do read the comments that come through, though I may not have the time to respond to them all) saying 'if you ever get married please don't stop doing this' and I literally thought 'why on earth would I do that?' It seemed the most bizarre thing in the world to me but I think some people do think that art eventually needs to give way to 'real life' and while sure we have responsibilities I hope Maedhbh that you will surround yourself with people who know it is important to you and never seize to follow your heart in your artwork as you get older =)
