About thecreative.blog


Martina of thecreative.blog
that’s me!

I’m Martina, a mid-thirty girl who can’t live without art. And I don’t.

I’m a professional art teacher, but I work as product director at an online publisher.

I started this blog as I want to share my passion for art and creative processes for you.

I’m starting an art-related business this summer and you’ll get a view right behind the scenes. Also, I’m doing lots of art activities with my kids, and I’ll share those with you as well.
There is so much information in my head about business, publishing, psychology and art, I want to share all this with you as well. I just have to get all this wisdom out of my head and into some blog posts or documents for you. Those will be epic!
And then I’m so curious, I spend a lot of time at exhibitions or online at artists websites or Instagram. That’s why there’s a category for curated art. Please keep in mind that I’m not a professional art critic. My opinion is totally subjective and as I like art taken with a grain of salt, you shoudn’t wonder if you find some funny sidenotes or weird stuff on my page. That’s intentional!

I have a background in approaching art with kids and art education as in the concept of Buschkühle/Urlaß and Kettel. Joachim Kettel was my teacher at university and he even made me publish a book, together with my friend and fellow student Kristina Penava. It’s called “Bizzli Munk” but is not available at the moment. (Don’t be sad, maybe I’ll publish another another one in future).

Other things I’ve done in the past: I have a diploma as a multimedia producer by SAE Munich, studied business informatics and I worked for almost ten years in market research before I started at my current company eight years ago.

I’m a (hobby) blogger for years now, this is my second blog about art, but it’s the first time I’m writing in english. English is not my native language, so I hope you’ll just ignore my typos and funny grammar mistakes (or let me know in the comments section…). They are not so intentional 😉

I hope you’ll find lot’s of inspiration for your personal live as art lover and I’m looking forward to get in touch with you!
