A glimpse into my summer makings:
Breathe - Sometimes it’s the small moments of tranquillity and vulnerability that are most real and meaningful in a modern life. A breath of pure calm is captured here with mixed media on cradled wood panel. Collaged with paper, ink, paint and beaded lace.
Garden Story - A story of growth, truth and finding her way in the world. The whimsical “her” portrays my journey of soul-searching and finding my path. Mixed media on cradled wood panel. Collaged with type, paper, ink and paint.
A simple and soulful art journal entry expressing the combined sorrow and happiness that solitude can bring. Acrylic paint and ink in a handmade art journal.
Taking time to celebrate a soulful state of mind with vivid feminine colours and a girl who symbolizes me. Collaged with paper, hand-illustrated words, ink and paint.
I discovered the pure joy of creating tiny 3 x 4 inch art blocks for the youngsters of some of my favourite friends. It is one of the most rewarding kinds of art to do because the inspiration comes from these energetic, happy little souls. I would love to expand my business and do more custom pieces for tiny hands.
Sketching is soothing. Everything and anything that comes to mind or inspires me, I try to sketch it.
And finally, making my own stamps has been incredibly fun. Use lino block and a lino carving tool, and voila! Thanks Danita for showing me such a simple and rewarding tool.
