Let’s get together!
My artworks aren’t complete when I put the brush down. They’re only complete when YOU, the viewer interacts with them.
It’s often impossible for you to be in the same room as me. So I’ve thought long and hard about how to offer you a space in which to really dig deep into the insights into my creative process. This subscription will be the closest thing to being in the studio with me while I’m working on my art!
Come into the Studio
I invite you to share what I experience as I make my work: To slow down, explore, experience curiosity, and to play.
Every other month, I’ll share with you a customised digital sketchbook to ‘have and hold’ - at least virtually! Each sketchbook will be brimming with rich visual documentation of my creative journey over the last 14 years.
You’ll also get multi-media journeys into the stories behind the work. Much more in-depth than the limited versions I share on social media or my blog!
Over our 12 months together we’ll explore a story: How I went from the ‘artist who thought she wasn’t an artist’ to find my creative voice. And then on to develop a unique style of working that bypassed my inner critic and detonated my creative blocks.
Through this exploration, you’ll get to enjoy an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the approaches I use to develop my artworks.
And you’ll enhance your understanding of the many mini-practices that help to drive our creative process!
Why this subscription is DIFFERENT
Please, not another dull PDF
If you’re picturing reproductions of existing sketchbooks in PDF format, think again! These beautiful books are as close as possible to a tactile experience. Explore this special layered, scrapbook-style via an amazing page-flip experience.
You'll also receive a host of audio and video media as well as written notes to enrich your experience and complete your understanding.
Don't just 'support' me
The ability of art to transform us constantly amazes me. This transformation occurs both when we experience the power of other people’s art and when we explore our own creative process.
I hope that, as well as enjoying this journey for its own sake, it will also inspire you in your own creative process - or in your life in general.
“On at least two separate occasions clients were brought to tears because they were so moved by this work. There is…a strong narrative attached to the imagery and…bags of symbolism that permeates every facet which resonates with collective and personal experience.”
Jason Noble, Words & Pictures Gallery
Is this subscription for you?
If you love my art, the subscription will help you understand much more about it.
Or if you want to improve your own creative process, this deep-dive into mine will give you invaluable insights.
And, of course, when you purchase a subscription you'll be supporting me in continuing to make the work. And making a small artist very happy!
What will I get each month?
6+1 = 7 Digital Sketchbooks!
Every other month you’ll get a customised page-flip sketchbook with a different theme. Each book will be brimming with rich visual documentation of my creative process. The book will gather ideas from different pieces, to show the development from sketchbook roughs to finished artworks. You’ll see how motifs recur in the work or how a body of work developed over time.
Some editions will focus on my latest pieces. Others will be retrospective editions to help you make sense of my creative trajectory and navigate your own!
You’ll be able to read exclusive notes about my idea development and process. Again, as well as insight into my work, this will also give you ideas for how to develop your own body of work.
I’ve learned to maintain my creative routine in diverse - and often very small (!) spaces. Join me in these ‘studios’ via videos and snatches of audio.
My best insights into the creative process come when I’m working on my art - not surprisingly! I’ll be sharing these spontaneous creative thoughts and reflections via short voice recordings.
- Art ideas Trello board
- Secret Pinterest boards
I use both Trello and Pinterest to store inspiring ideas for my projects. I’ll share both of them with you so you can peek into my mental process as well as get ideas for how to stimulate your own!
Who knows what other bits I might throw in as well? Maybe some limited edition postcards direct to your door…we’ll see!
Who is Cherry Jeffs?
I’m a mixed-media artist specialising in one-off artist’s books. I use my work to explore the boundary between 2D and 3D to create tactile, elastic spaces where magical encounters unfold.
Many of the characters in my work have wings or take flight in other ways - reflecting how the creative journey has the power to lift both the maker (me!) and the viewer (you!) out of the mundane and help us transcend our perceived limitations.
I have a degree in Theatre Design from Wimbledon College of Art, London and have worked and exhibited as a designer and artist in both the UK and Spain. I currently split my time between the ever-changing seascapes of Devon and the perpetually intriguing landscape and culture of Andalusia.
For the past five years, I’ve also worked as a creative coach to empower artists and other creatives to grow wings and take to the skies.
My artwork is to be found in private collections across the world.
How do I access the material?
Every month you will receive an email with links to the latest material.
You can choose to view, stream or download the content as you wish.
At the end of 12 months, your payment subscription ends, but you’ll get lifetime access to all the materials. Additionally you’ll unlock access to a private online library where all 6 sketchbooks are beautifully displayed.
All this for only £5 per month
If you pay the one-off yearly price of £60* (approx $80), the subscriptions works out at only £5 (approx $6.66) a month.
But I understand if you can't pay up front. So the monthly price is still accessibly priced at just £7* (approx $9.35) a month.
*Gumroad is legally obliged to add VAT to this price if you're purchasing within Europe
What if I have a question that is not answered here?
