If you feel peace in your heart, you know you've made the right decision ♡ 
I am a big 'embracer' of change. If something is not working, the permission to change things up is a beautiful gift we can give to ourselves & others. This can even mean revisting ideas of long ago & revamping them- the possibilities are truly endless!

I did a beautiful meditation today by the sea. When I opened my eyes I realised I had company! The energy emanating from this feathered friend felt both curious & peaceful. A sweet moment ♡

Do you guys meditate? I've been on a 40 day personal practice & am finding the benefits incredible including deeper sleep, less stress & the ability to step back from it all with clearer perspective. Solutions to problems are effortlessly cropping up & I feel more focused creatively. I'm planning to make this a daily exercise from here on in ♡

Sending you love & light-I would love to hear your thoughts Xo

"When you're sensitive you're alive in every sense of the word in this wildly beautiful world. Sensitivity is your strength. Keep soaking in the light & spreading it with others." Victoria Erickson .

This 'Bloom Mandala' sold yesterday to a beautiful, kindred spirit who like me is very sensitive. We connected through the common bond of how it feels to energetically sense & feel things so deeply. She mentioned it felt like such a cross to bear at times & whilst I agree I also gently reminded her that the world needs more sensitive souls to help heal the planet & share the light ♡ Today I'm celebrating all of the sensitive people in my life including myself! ♡

The idea for these nature artworks came just after a beautiful meditation by the sea. I looked down & saw a little sea stone & was curious to see how it would look with a design on it.

These artworks ended up being some favourite pieces from today's art market. The round one with the hearts was bought by a beautiful couple with a sleeping newborn in their arms. I felt so happy it would soon be in their home ♡

I was reminded how special it is today to connect with people face to face with a shared love of art & life. So many beautiful conversations were had & new friends met! Feeling totally grateful right now♡♡♡

Pre market madness! Trying to decide which artworks will come along for the Cronulla twilight markets today. It's an incredible feeling to stand back & look at all of this colourful art created at various times in my life. Each one shares a story, a feeling, a hope & a dream. Art will have my heart forever! Made with love ♡
