Are you a creative person? Are you able to be creative in your job? I discovered that beautiful Ioana here is incredibly creative during this Königstein artist photoshoot.

I’ve wanted to photograph an artist for a while, so when Ioana got in touch, I jumped at the chance to work with her! She needed behind the scenes images and product shots for her website, to launch her business online.

This skilled artist actually has two roles, the other is as a Compassionate Emotions Coach (look out for more on that in a later blog post).

I’m always fascinated by any creative person’s methodology or workflow, so watching Ioana create was almost hypnotic.

 

Art as therapy

 

Ioana has a background in directing theatre and has created several productions. Originally from Romania, this adept abstract artist relocated to Germany 7 years ago.

Her passion for art developed as a form of therapy – a desire to explore and understand her own emotions. She is fascinated by the impact art can have on people’s inner experiences and she believes it can have a therapeutic effect.

Ioana pours not only paint, but also her heart and soul into her artwork. She is a true creator. I loved documenting both her beautiful pieces, as well as her creative process.

The technique she uses is called ‘chaos pouring’. She starts with a blank canvas, pours a mixture of different coloured paints on it, and then blends them together with a combination of a hairdryer, a blowtorch, her breath and even her fingers!

Her deeply rooted curiosity about her own emotions led her down the abstract expressionism path. You can see from these images that her skill comes naturally.

The results are vibrant and mesmerising! I could watch her create all day. It was as therapeutic for me as it was for her!

You can see from the smile on Ioana’s face in these shots, just how much she enjoys creating these pieces. And she enjoyed our session too,

Here’s what she had to say about working together:

“The experience I had with Clare as my photographer was astonishing. She squeezed in two photoshoots on the same day and did not feel like rushing through it.

Instead, she impressively captured my essence as an abstract artist and Compassionate Emotions Coach. Her flexibility regarding the photoshoot schedule and ability to make me relax in front of the camera was what I needed most in this session.

In addition, our collaboration until the meeting and after was and still is lovely. She is present and supportive; you can feel she wants you to succeed.

I wholeheartedly recommend Clare as a photographer. I can vouch for the fantastic collaboration you will have.”

Thank you so much Ioana for choosing me to photograph you and inviting be behind the scenes of your creative process. It was a genuine privilege and joy. You can check out Ioana’s website here and her Instagram account here. I can’t wait to see her future creations.
