This is our space to grow together
I wanted to create a space where I can slow down and feel at ease while sharing. My intention is that the healing energy that I infuse into this space will pass on to you.
Think of it as distance healing through art, words, images, and magic.
As I sit here typing, I am reminded of my beginnings. It all really started with a blog back in 2006. I had no idea who I was as an artist. I spent years creating with my hands as a dollmaker, I attended art school and fell in love with digital art through Illustrator and Photoshop, and dabbled with painting in a realistic style, but I didn’t have a style or a sense of purpose with my art. At the time, I was still dealing with Lyme disease and its aftermath 6 years later. I was depressed and longing for a purpose. That is when I discovered blogging and a world of art and expression opened before me. I remember finding these magical blogs by artists like Kelly Rae Roberts and Susannah Conway and was in awe of what they were doing. I decided to start my own blog, which is funny because I had never written anything really, and had no art to share. I only had a calling or what I like to refer to as the gentle whispers to create it.
I thought that I could write about other artists that inspired me and see where it led. The blog turned into a personal journal about my struggles, illness, and search for art. It opened up doors within me and began the slow and steady road to creating art that resonated with how I feel. It took a while, but I got there.
Here are some of my early pieces of art and products with Lenox, Moda, Madison Park Greetings, and Studio M. I believe this is from around 2012-2013. My work has evolved since those early days. Art is a constant evolution. It changes as you grow and I’ve grown a lot since then.
It feels good to be back at my beginnings and I’m feeling inspired by this form of connection. It’s a nod to the days of the past that were slow lived and we took our time with things.
