From my heart to yours πŸ’ž

"What Does Your Heart Say?" is a mixed media creation combining hand painted sea rocks on a round (light-weight) concrete frame.

Each rock has been chosen with love from the sparkly shores of a secluded Sydney beach. It is a breathtaking spot to meditate, relax, swim, unwind & look for treasures.

The central sea rock in this creation poses a question that is so important in life "What does your heart say?" So often we live out of obligation, habit & a sense of duty. We can get to the ends of our lives never having fully lived the fullest expression of ourselves. It is in asking or dear, wise heart, that we can be led in the direction of our dreams.

A simple way to connect with your heart is this... Allow yourself a few moments of quiet time- no phones, no distractions.
Close your eyes gently and take a deep breath in...then let it go. Sigh if it feels good to you.
Spend a few moments just like this- simply breathing in & breathing out.

Let your day go, let any worries, doubts, thoughts, and fears pass over you like a cloud. The only place you need to be is here now, in this beautiful quiet moment.

When you feel ready to place your right hand over your heart space. Feel the warmth as you make contact with this sacred part of your being. 
Now ask your heart a question- whatever you might be struggling with at present or something you would like to shine a light upon. You might say "Dear heart what would you have me know today?" Now listen- do not try to judge or dismiss what comes up. Simply listen. Continue this dialogue as long as you feel is necessary, breathing in & breathing out. 
When you feel ready to open your eyes. You may like to jot down what was revealed during this brief interaction. Trust your heart, listen to it & over time you will learn to operate out of this space with the most beautiful results Xo

As you can see, this is not only an artwork, but an invitation to journey inwards to access profound wisdom & unlock your truest hearts desires πŸ’«

It measures 15 x 15cm (6 x 6") & has a hook on the back, ready to hang.

It is also signed with a special message on the back. DM for inquiries & heartfelt commissions. 
Made with love πŸ’•

Forever learning, forever growing... In art & life & what a beautiful experience it all is. 
Yesterday at the Hazelhurst I felt like I was surfing on waves of gratitude, inspiration & love. I was able to truly connect to the spirit of my business which is to 'inspire & uplift' - through art, energy & words. 
To see the delighted faces as people saw my art for the first time, to chat to budding young artists & encourage them, to connect with loyal return customers, catch up with old friends & meet new ones was SUCH a joy. 
So often as an artist it is a solo journey in the studio creating, exploring & then selling art online. You can miss human contact. Chatting to people face to face about all things art is invaluable. The conversations inevitably spill over into life experiences, hopes & dreams. It feels like sacred & healing ground to be on. 
Today I am absorbing all of the goodness & feeling excited about the future. I am wishing you a magnificent week ahead- FULL of dreams coming true πŸŒ πŸ’ž Xo
