Saturday morning and browsing Lego art

Saturday morning and browsing Lego art

Due to my own home renovations and having a week shopping for bricks and mortar .. yes there is an art to both! I stumbled across Lego bricks, more specifically Lego art. No doubt it is a medium for the fanatical and Lego-passionate, not one for me but no less...
I’m an art bag lover!

Creative inspiration

That Creative Feeling is an artists blog for creative inspiration by Australian sculpture Dina Goebel.

In starting this blog I wanted to capture what feeds me as an artist and hopes it inspires you to give it a go!

About Dina

“Women are looking for alternate ways to express themselves and satisfy their creative needs but often don’t know where to begin.”

Dina Goebel 2007

This is exactly what motivates me … helping others feel inspired about art and craft in their home.

Most of the public have no confidence to even begin being an artist! This blog, established in 2012, aims to enable women to experience the joy of creative inspiration in their own homes by role modelling the artistic possibilities within everyone’s reach.

Generally my work has been nature based, my creative inspiration comes as a suburban householder concerned about our natural environment.

For 7 years I did work full time as an artist and will return to the studio after my corporate career. In the meantime my artistic expression has never left me, be it in this blog, renovating my home or creating and exploring my own artistic style. That is because,

I AM ALWAYS THE ARTIST, Dina

Woodcut art .. master craftsmen on so many levels

From the most famous Japanese wood blocks, to the modern artists of today ..woodblock art captures a unique simplified yet knowingly deceptive complex art medium. A lot of conflicting words in that sentence but try making your own wood block art .. it is so... read more

Is this the new wave of pop-art?

Over the past year I have commented on the rise of urban art in today’s modern art movement. Drawing its roots from graffiti and street art, I wonder if we are seeing a new form of pop art emerge? During the 1960s pop art came to fruition. Pop-art was (and still... read more
