Inspiring art: Tempest

While she is perhaps most well-known as a belly-dancer, I love the art of Tempest, especially her pictures of animals. There is a beautiful sense of deep earthy spirituality behind her work that I respond to very strongly. I adore work with depth – it makes my spirit sing.

A print of this image “Strength” has a prominent position in my studio, because I love it so much:

Tempest also has a fabulously intelligent dance blog, Tempest’s Teapot, which provides food for thought for more than dancers.

And if you like steampunk, do check out her new project SteamWomen, which celebrates the female artists and makers in the steampunk scene.
