Wink!

Here is another installment of my Wink! project. Today I share the next 4 pages of the 365-day art challenge I set myself a the beginning of the year! I am still going strong and enjoying every day but the meaning of the word “challenge” has become crystal for me because there is only soContinue reading “Wink!”

Daily Tarot Card

I have been intrigued by the Tarot for as long as I can remember: A series of cards with colour and images representing the many stations of human life, that we read using both our knowledge and our intuition to find the message to a question. I recently retired from my chosen career as aContinue reading “Daily Tarot Card”

Celebrating 100 days!

Today marks the 100th day of my 365-day challenge “Wink”. I am really stoked to have made it this far, as it takes some serious dedication to complete a project that involves creating something, every single day. So far, I have learned a lot about myself and my process, and feel that I have comeContinue reading “Celebrating 100 days!”

365 Day Challenge

Here is some progress on my “Wink” project, which consists of reading a Tarot card every morning, doing research to learn about that card and then drawing a sketch based on that inspiration (and the whole series is also based on my well-used cup cozy). At the end of the year, I’ll be putting all theContinue reading “365 Day Challenge”

Weekly Photo Challenge – a Face in the Crowd

There is a theory that says every snowflake is different – not as if we could ever compare every snowflakes to each other… The same can be said about every Face in the Crowd – each unique even though it is said we all have doppelgangers out there! Snowflakes float through the air individually, eachContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge – a Face in the Crowd”

Staycation = Art-Vacation

Everyone’s idea of a  perfect staycation may differ, but whatever your idea is, I strongly suggest you try it some day. First off, no matter how you choose to spend it, it will be spent where you live and taking advantage of your local attractions, your home, your family and your favourite activity (mine isContinue reading “Staycation = Art-Vacation”

365 day challenge – Wink

In 2017, I had the opportunity to meet a fellow artist who shared their sketchbooks with me and I was deeply inspired by what I saw. I thought it was a great way to bank my visions and grow as an artist as well as an excellent opportunity to experiment. So as I mentioned inContinue reading “365 day challenge – Wink”

Goals for 2018

Goals!!! I like to think everyone has them, and I believe they are a tool for growth and creating your dreams. Goals are how I choose to live my life by – Not resolutions as I find them easier to stick to, of course this is just me…. As we come to the end of theContinue reading “Goals for 2018”
