What is Intuitive Art?

What is intuitive art, Print Ark Blog

While all artists create using their intuition to an extent, there is a branch of art now being recognised specifically as intuitive art.

We are very excited to have a talented intuitive artist at Print Ark and wanted to take a closer look into this wonderful  area of creativity.

What is Intuitive Art?

Christina Cerqueira creates stunning original works with watercolour paint that have the ability to connect with something inside her admirers.

Intuitive art means different things to different artists, and each artist will interpret it in their own way. There isn’t really a hard and fast definition of intuitive art.

How to tell your personal story with a Bohemian Home

I was going to title this blog ‘How to create the Perfect Bohemian Home’ but then I realised that if there’s one thing boho is not, it’s perfect! Boho is creative, inspired and spirited, and does whatever it wants, so you can’t really try to perfect it, can you?

There are no rules with boho design because it completely flies in the face of rules. So, this article is definitely not about rules or perfection, but we have gathered some tips and guidelines that you could follow in your Bohemian home design (if you wanted to – it’s completely up to you!).

What is Bohemian home décor?

Bohemian style comes from the French word for ‘gypsy’ and embraces all things unconventional, free-flowing and eclectic. However, there is a difference between free-flowing and just ‘thrown-together’ or ‘messy’. How do you find that difference?

Easy Winter Styling Tips for Your Home

Easy Winter Styling Tips for your Home, Print Ark Blog

Winter Styling for your home can feel like the time to get out the heavy drapes and extra blankets, while all of the fun brightly coloured items get put away until summer comes around again.

Winter styling doesn’t need to be sombre or heavy though, we think it should be no less bright, with soft furnishings and little décor touches to celebrate in the warmer months.

The idea of winter styling is to fill your living space with things that make you feel comfortable, warm and happy, and that kind of wrap you up in a lovely big embrace when you trudge in after a cold or dreary day.

Here are some of Print Ark’s favourite winter styling tips for 2019 (that we think will last much longer than just one season or one year!)

Charity Auction Feature Image

This year Christmas feels more than a bit special to us. It's our second Christmas at Print Ark and we've had a great year helping  creative businesses be discovered by homeowners looking for unique wall art and decor.

But, this Christmas is particularly special because we're doing something different.

For someone different.

Over the last couple of months I've been gathering donated gifts from Australian small businesses (and an awesome New Zealand business too!) and last week we launched our first Print Ark Charity Auction, with 100% of the proceeds going to The Bandari Project, a charity in Tanzania.

Why them and why Tanzania I hear you ask?
