Creating art and staying connected in today's world

  Dear Readers, As concerns about the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 increase, I wanted to talk about what is happening in my studio and what I'm doing to care for my clients during this time. My plan is as follows: Working remotely, connecting digitally: Because my studio is in my home, I have all the resources and tools I need to continue creating art. However, as art shows and upcoming exhibitions have been canceled, I currently can sell my art only through my website and Etsy. I'm hustling from home and I'm here to support you with the best service you’ve come to expect. Your health...

New Work: Someone I Loved

  First loves leave vivid memories because of the intense emotions. If your first relationship was anything like mine, you'll have mostly tender thoughts, but also some sad memories.

Drawing inspiration - or being a Copycat?

Inspiration Self Improvement

Drawing inspiration - or being a Copycat?

Drawing inspiration is a good thing. And important for all artists, no matter if a young painter or a more experienced artist.   But at some point - especially when the artist starts selling their work - I feel one has to slowly start finding their own creativity instead of copying only other artists, that they maybe look up to. And it’s a big difference whether a budding artist copies someone’s style to improve their artistry and learn more about their own creativity. Or if a selling artist copies someone’s work to make a profit and selling their pieces. And...

Two techniques to kickstart your creativity

  If you can't find inspiration to get your next painting or art piece started, I have two different suggestions for you to kickstart that inspiration and get your creative juices flowing. Check them out in the short video here:   This is a video that I created for the audience of our Facebook page "Artsy Broads over 50".  If you haven't done so already, join us- we are building a supportive Facebook community that celebrates female creatives in their "mid-life".  Here we can laugh about ourselves, share stories, inspire and motivate each other, network with other kickass artists and help each other...
