I spoke to Artist and Business woman Salpi Markarian about her creative process, where she finds inspiration and how she finds balancing her businesses with art and motherhood. Salpi's art is a reflection of her life's experiences. With an eye for design and interiors, Salpi chooses her colour palettes based on what she feels a particular room needs; hoping her art will form rich connections with others and bring a powerful meaning to people's homes.
Charlotte Keates invites us to step into her detailed, idyllic interiors and calming architectural scenes. Here, the viewer can choose to occupy the space themselves, from the inside looking out or from the outside looking in – like a scene in a movie. Charlotte’s work is inspired by travels around the world, and seeks to explore the ergonomics of a space and how humans act and react to architectural spaces –making you want to jump in, explore and relax.
