Inspired People – Ivana Pinaffo

Artists are inspired people. But what makes them create what they create? What lights the fire that produces such wonderful work? Here are a few questions that will hopefully inspire some answers.

I’m excited to post this, the first of the return of this series. And we have a fantastic inspired person under the spotlight – Ivana Pinaffo, an artist of stunning talent with a love of colour that draws me in like a moth to a flame. Her work is vibrant and beautiful across a plethora of subjects. Iā€™m really happy to have her here today. Thankyou for sharing your inspirations, Ivana!

Last night I sat down and played with some cut up paper and some inktense pencils (still love them). I can’t show you the entire piece (though it isn’t finished yet, so not really much to see anyway) as it is for another challenge which has a specific reveal date, but here is a sneak peek.
