• She has a Gypsy Soul and a Fairy Spirit

    16 October 2017 / Art, Inspirations

    Armed with all the love and mischief gathered since before her birth in 2015, a trio of pictures was created around the words her mother posted at the announcement of her birth.  This was a gift for my god-daughter’s first born.  One of Lotti’s many superpowers is her love of nature and the sense of freedom she oozes.  Fun and natural…

  • What comes from the heart

    12 August 2016 / Art, Design

    Some charitable acts are driven by love.  A beautiful person made a request to help a friend for a good cause with no other stipulation than that she liked the Happily-Ever-After-Hearts that I had recently completed for a wedding. On further enquiry, we established the dream catcher was a favourite part. I set to work on some initial sketches using the…

  • Happily Ever After Hearts

    14 March 2016 / Art, Design

    A beautiful invitation arrived and plans were made to attend.  However as the date drew closer we were unable to attend & the bride-&-groom-to-be would not accept a monetary gift for their wishing well in our absence.  So what to do? “Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile” Franklin P…

  • Love is a four-legged word

    26 February 2016 / Art, News

    How does one pay tribute to a special dog?  For eight years I have known him.  He was already 10 when I met him.  Dexter has been the guardian of good energy and unconditional love enjoyed at our Wednesday group of wonderful friends for several years.  Year in, year out, he has been a cherished and loyal participant…

  • Do Artists have Rules?

    15 January 2016 / Art

    They say that rules are meant to be broken.  As an artist your creativity is always spiked by doing something different.  It is in the discovery of new ways to look at things that our imagination is stretched. There are many techniques that can be employed to achieve this such as using a frame to see things…

  • Making of the Chakra Series

    14 December 2015 / Art, Design

    If you have ever attended a yoga class you will recognise these little gems.  Chakras are said to be energy centres that align the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and beyond if you count the auric field.  They offer the perfect balance within the body for tapping the…

  • Nothing like a Good Scare

    14 September 2015 / Art

    They say that we should banish fear and negativity as much as possible in our everyday lives. In a world where the unknown is regularly banished in favour of what we can understand and control, we run the risk of leaving nothing to the imagination. “Fear has two meanings: Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything…

  • Can Art Change You?

    12 August 2015 / Art, Design

    When a person creates art, or when they experience other people’s art, they are making a connection. More than just about the making of art or the simple seeing of something new, art is about the meaning we seek both in ourselves as well as in our connection with the world. Sometimes we would like…

  • Listen to Mother Nature

    15 July 2015 / Art, Inspirations

    I’m constantly in awe of nature. Not just in its capacity to create and control life on this wondrous planet but also, in the little things. Those moments when you notice the leaves changing colour on the trees; raindrops glistening on the window; a butterfly  fluttering from flower to flower; blades of grass dancing in the wind;…

  • How to become an Artist

    15 June 2015 / Art

    Hello and Welcome to my very first blog on my new website! When I first tell a person I am a visual artist, I am often met with great interest shortly followed by “Are you a starving or a thriving artist?” “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” Vincent Van…
