Before the Creative Process
Why the ‘Why’ Matters
Think of your ‘why’ like the flame to your candle, like the mojo to all your creative undertakings!Read more
During the Creative Process
Do It Before You’re Ready
Dreams and creativity or plans to exercise and take better care of ourselves are often added to some imaginary ‘first of the year/next month/ when things’ slow down list.
And so we wait.
Inside My Studio: The Dream.Love.Paint Cottage
I have grown my studio to reflect me and my dreams.
It is not based on what a proper artist’s studio ‘should’ have. (Who wrote those ‘rules’ anyway??)
It is and will always be reflective of my changing dreams and desires.
Let’s head inside so you can see what I’ve chosen and why.
I hope you are inspired to do the same for yourself. Create a magical space, one that reflects and supports YOU in your creative endeavors!

Imagine — In Gratitude for Artists
A world without.
We would still have grand beauty no doubt
For there are the canyons deep and turquoise reefs
And the falling of nature painted leaves
And the dance of swallows in a murmur

And let me tell you, the rewards are so worth the pivot.

Whatever wisdom, creativity, and faith is mine—-I will use it to its fullest extent.
Knowing that when I use what I have been given, my Source, will amplify and increase….with more wisdom, creativity, and faith.
I do not wait for more to begin my journey, to live my life, to use my gifts.
I EXHAUST what I have knowing that this is how it works.”
