t'ART online: December Edition
I’m Beth, and I love life drawing. After I was diagnosed with ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 2017, I found drawing helped to improve my mental health, and gave me a sense of accomplishment.
I began attending life drawing classes in person, but I struggled because of my fatigue. So, when I found out there were zoom life drawing classes, I was overjoyed! My favourite is called Fat Life Drawing, an inclusive class that believes, as I do, that all bodies deserve representation.
In 2020 I bought an iPad and started to learn digital drawing. Now it's my favourite way to draw. I like the way you can use whatever medium you want, which means you can experiment with ease.
Drawing is a hobby for now, but one day, I’d love to earn a living from it. And I hope through my Instagram @drawyourwayhome I can encourage others to enjoy the benefits of drawing too.

I'm a 19 year old photographer and artist, who loves to explore all types of art in a variety of forms, including sexuality and Feminism. All forms of art helps people come together and explore each others emotions and understanding of the world, and how we should all respect eachothers human rights and freedom.
Celine Anne O'Donovan
Celine is not a new writer, but she is new to sharing her work. Her poem “Eden” expresses the period in which she detangled her feelings of rejection after a significant breakup from her views about herself. In the last few years, developing her relationship with her “self” in the context of romantic relationships has been a priority for Celine. This is something which she feels is central to the queer experience and, by extension, to much queer art.
Outside of writing, Celine is an environmental and humanitarian lawyer, living in London.
Cormac Mc Ateer
Cormac Mc Ateer takes a uniquely imaginative approach to portraiture. An eclectic range of influences from Popular Culture to German Expressionism inform a charged, expressive style. Jaded, awkwardly placed subjects stare out from garish Pop landscapes and give Cormac's work a haunting, plastic quality. Surfaces are worked over with frenetic energy with paintings often ripped up and assembled into new ones. Finding poignancy in the cartoonish, finding spirit in the grotesque, rediscovering naivety within the synthetic, the surfaces of Cormac’s paintings are unusual places, where the contradictory can merge and find a brief, strange harmony. Cormac has previously worked as a commercial illustrator, animator and Art educator before committing full time to his own practice.
