My eight year old daughter & I love to rush down to the waters edge to watch the sun rise over the sea. Everyday is different offering new colours, cloud formations, weather patterns & feelings. We never regret making the effort. It's breathtaking every single time to watch that beautifully luminous globe of light begin her ascent. These are some highlights from our recent adventures Xo

A seek peek into a heartfelt project I'm working on right now. It is not a commission, proposal or even art for sale-this is 'healing art' for my own Heart & Soul. Layering papers, drawings & words have helped me since I was very young to process life & explore what is next. Sometimes the answers come in these quiet moments of creativity πŸ’«πŸ™πŸ’ž

Things close to my heart right now: Guiding my daughter through life with as much love & light as possible. Giving myself more permission to just be. Kindness... always kindness. Trust that it's all unfolding exactly as it's meant to even when I'm not sure how. Creating art for beautiful lightworkers in the form of cards, book covers & other illustrations. What an honour this truly is ✨

Hands down the most beautiful part of my creative journey has been collaborating with like minded Souls on heartfelt projects. This image is a part of a series of spiritual teachings to be released later this year.

Dreaming of the sea & exotic destinations today. I would love to take a year off & travel the world, homeschool my daughter, meet people from all walks of life & see Mother Nature in all her glory. First stop Iceland which is pictured here...omg that water! Anything is possible right? πŸ’™πŸŒ¬οΈβ„οΈπŸ’™

There is something so soothing about textures upon textures. That is why I love pushing the boundaries & creating art on fallen tree bark, sea rocks & other interesting gifts from Mama Earth. The more gnarly, imperfect & unusual the shape, the more it seems to appeal to me. It suggests a life that has been lived to the fullest. Yes to that! ✨

"Future So Bright" is an artwork that has been on an interesting journey. It was a breakthrough painting for me as I freestyle painted the outline of her face with an ink dropper (trickier than it sounds!) She was once facing a male face but this didn't feel right to me. I sat with it for some time & felt compelled to white him out & instead have her focusing on her own dreams. This felt good! I added some silk flowers for fun & voila this piece felt complete. I am all for love but know the importance of holding space for our own personal dreams. This piece is honouring all the dreamers out there. We need you Xo

"Simple Abundance" was a painting that flowed through me onto the canvas with such grace, ease & urgency. Some art wishes to be born into the world pronto! Bold brushstrokes & vivid colour conveyed exactly how I was feeling that day, that there is beauty in simplicity in art & life...That abundance can be found in tiny moments- a fullness of feeling, an appreciation for what is working rather than dwelling on what is not. This is the divine dance. .
. 
Why do we overcomplicate things at times I wonder? Stepping out of our own way & working with this mysterious force called life is where the true magic happens πŸ’ž
