Make Life Your Masterpiece

Since September I’ve been exploring creativity with Jessica Outram and her “Creativity Coaching Canada” business. She has offered so much insight and content for me over the last three months; but the most valuable lesson I have gained is understanding that art really is my life work. Not just painting, but writing too, and expressingContinue reading “Make Life Your Masterpiece”

A Covid-Style Christmas…

It’s November. Normally, at this time of year I’m a few weeks away from my annual Christmas Market, or preparing for other art events. This year, it’s looking a bit different. With all events cancelled, sales now are shifting to online “venues.” Orders now have to be shipped, or pick-ups and drop-offs arranged, which takesContinue reading “A Covid-Style Christmas…”

Expanding On The Arts

There is something about the crisp air of September that always helps clear my head, and get me motivated again. Since August I have been working on a few custom oil paintings, and playing around with some merchandise from previous works. Tote bags, mugs, and the 2021 calendar are a few on my list ofContinue reading “Expanding On The Arts”

Nature, Art, and Life Inspiration

Yesterday was the first day back to school for a lot of kids. A great time to get back into routine, and for myself it’s the perfect time to regroup on business. Today felt like a fresh start, another new beginning (of many, in these life cycles). It is so great to be able toContinue reading “Nature, Art, and Life Inspiration”

Hello 40!

40. You are finally here! I have been excited for this landmark birthday since I was 25… It seemed to hold so much promise, excitement, and wise-woman-wisdom. It has seemed mysterious and so far away. But before August 25th arrived, I was struck with a few trials and tribulations that made me reconsider my excitement.Continue reading “Hello 40!”

Adventures in Art | Summer 2019

Summer has just begun but holy moly with a bang! At the end of June I wrapped up a huge custom painting, which was fun but also very challenging (it was a surprise gift, so very little communication was made during the process). I was  happy  to  hear  it  was  a hit! Then at theContinue reading “Adventures in Art | Summer 2019”
