Ever wonder how many of us have those inner voices of angels and demons contradicting each other? You know the kind of thing - 'A glass of wine is good for you' versus 'Go on, finish the whole bottle', or 'A biscuit with that cup of tea would be nice' versus 'The whole packet would be even better'. Here is an insight into what happens in your everyday decisions making. Credit to the amazing Mike Wilks.

There is no better way for us to celebrate Women's International Day than by sharing the work of a talented female artist. Whooli Chen offers limitless creativity in her work. Her surrealist universe seems to be ruled by the unconscious mind where floating objects tell us a story “I like adding elements of surrealism in my works because it represents more room for interpretation”. We love her delicate style, calming colour palette and the whimsical spirit of her work. Whooli’s keenest strength lies in her untouchable finesse and sheer skill of application. She has the power to move even the most stoic of humans.
