Stimulating and Inspiring

“I spent an hour in Smiths looking for an inspiring magazine and was amazed at the plethora of choice that was available.

After browsing several magazines I chose Be Creative. I have just finished reading it and found it both stimulating and inspiring. I especially loved the articles by Michelle Mischkulnig, Val Hughes, Lynda Monk and Leslie Morgan - I greatly admire their skill, talent and originality.

I have just begun to experiment with mixed media and love portraying beautiful landscapes; I feel I have gained wonderful ideas from reading these articles and am raring to get started on my next project.

I love the fact that all these artists are not hindered by conventional ideas but are free to experiment with whatever inspires them. Thank you!”
