Staying in touch with art… by Kiara Timm
It all started a year ago December 2020, the birth of the ‘Art Studio News’ newsletter; the idea to provide positive art news, keeping the good vides going as well as bringing people together through the arts.
Through this year, every monthly edition has been unique and special, aiming to provide something different each time. The section ‘Meeting a local Artist’ has been a treasure to learn and to get to know different talented artists. Their unique style and creative mind has offered the opportunity not only to learn about their art but also provided a source of inspiration in many ways.
To all the artists who have been involved in the newsletter in their own way, thank you for your support. Keep creating as art is the ‘food for the soul’.
To all the readers of the newsletter, thank you for keeping reading it, sharing it and for your positive feedback. You have all been a driven force to keep it alive and going. It would not have existed without your support.
May your upcoming holidays be inspiring, creative and special. As always, stay well, stay positive and enjoy your reading!
Meeting a local artist…LOUKIA MAVROMOUSTAKI!
Thirsty for life and creativity, Loukia Mavromoustaki is a self-taught artist who never gives up learning! Loukia’s passion for the arts started in 1994 when she first took Ikebana lessons. This Japanese art of flower arrangements has been an inspiration as well as a spiritual process which brought her closer to nature. Nature and human creativity are brought together into one!
Loukia always loved walks in nature and Ikebana brought her even closer to nature by getting to know the texture and the feeling of various flowers as well as the seasons when they are in bloom.
She discovered that by creating, it filled her heart with joy and peace and that influenced her into wanting to explore and learn more about arts and crafts. This also led her to start taking painting classes from a well-established, prominent artist and teacher. She took art classes for 7 years (1996-2002) while during that time she participated in a couple of group exhibitions.
Painting helped her to notice the different colors in nature and even more! Loukia started painting landscapes and particularly themes involving the sea as she grew up next to it.
Parallel to painting, she started doing dried flower arrangements and handcraft creations. In 2000-2001, she organized her own handcraft exhibitions. Her unique creations have been admired by many as she keeps them authentic with natural materials.
What makes her art special is the process and the love she puts into each one of her creations that connects her with the viewer through nature with its colors and elements.
