Escape Pod Emulation – Julie Palmer

11 December, 2017

Here is the final Escape Pod Interview for 2017! Find out more about the back story at Escape Pod Emulation! This month I’m welcoming Julie Palmer into her very own EPod! Read on to find out what Julie would take with her …
The first item I would take with me would be my Bible so that I could connect with others through Christ.
I would also take a Paper journal with me, to hold my thoughts together.
My Paintbox – a must! So many endless possibilities with watercolour!
Definitely a Cushion, for a hug!
And my last item would be a Mirror, so I could talk to myself for company!

Julie Palmer produces and performs in Prayerscapes, which is a musical landscape of scripture, poetry and song set within stunning orchestration. Listen to refresh your soul, to bind old wounds, and to connect with the eternal!
Find out more about Julie’s artistic and music skills in the latest Prayerscapes album, Dwell

Escape Pod Emulation for Claudia McGill

10 April, 2017

Today I’m extending a warm welcome to artist Claudia McGill. Claudia is the second artist I’ve interviewed as part of my Escape Pod Emulation series!
What would YOU take with you in an Escape Pod? Here are Claudia’s five items …
The card game Izzi. Endless variations, challenging, and yet very calming to play.
My pens and sketchbooks, which I keep in one small bag, ready to grab up at any time.
My favorite house plan book, Authentic Small Houses of the Twenties: Illustrations and Floor Plans of 254 Characteristic Homes (edited by Robert Jones), which is a reproduction of a catalog containing plans for small houses for people on a budget. Floor plans are like candy to me and I never get tired of looking at this book.
A copy of either The Terrorists or The Laughing Policeman, by Maj Sjowall/Per Wahloo, whichever comes to hand first. I love this whole series; the characters are old friends to me.
A pair of scissors. I can cut out things I draw and turn them into collages, or, I can cut up words and phrases from the Sjowall/Wahloo book (after I read it) and do collage poetry. Lacking glue, nothing will be permanent, so I can recycle my components. If I do something I like, well, I’ll make a note of it in my sketchbook.

Epod Emulation for Elisa Choi Ang

16 January, 2017

Here is another Escape Pod Emulation! A warm welcome to artist, Elisa Choi Ang!
The first of my items to take with me in the escape pod would be my Bible, as to me, it is the only book that matters.
Second would be my laptop as it is where I produce and store most of my work – that is also very important to me.
The third item would be my Art Tool Box as that is where I keep all the art materials I use that I need to make my art.
Fourth would be my wallet containing money that I may need to purchase things with once I reach civilisation again.
And my fifth item would, of course, be my mobile phone, not to call people with, but so that I can take photos!
Elisa Choi Ang is an artist who loves to empower people to make art inspired by their stories. She encourages others to sketch their lives in pen and paint in watercolor.
Elisa now has 2 classes available to participate in at her Online Class (see above link!). Now available is Sketch Your Life 2: Infuse Your Art with Creativity and Imagination This class inspires you to make your artwork engaging and personal to who you are as an artist, by exploring the techniques using one’s creativity, imagination and artistic style..
Come back next week to see the paintings Elisa has produced for me!.
