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

Felt art .. who knew?
