Enjoying winter arts in Australia

Enjoying winter arts in Australia

Whilst Australia doesn’t have the volumes of beautiful snow as in other parts of the world, it does make the most of its own unique winter. Sub-zero temperatures and thick misty mornings creates a wonderful atmosphere for the arts. Painting, photography, crafts,... read more

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.

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

The art of Tree sculptures

Tree sculptures … what a beautiful way to bring nature into our busy working lives, rather than being ‘out in the sticks’, bring the sticks inside to you! Personally I find my daily schedule stops me from enjoying nature and I forget to hug a tree.... read more

Embroidery art, tapestry art shakes off Grandma

Contemporary textile art, embroidery and tapestry art certainly continues to shake off the Grandma version we recall in Op-shops. The word ‘embroidery‘ comes with baggage; more often than not it evokes images of crocheted tea towels and twee cushion covers. But over... read more
