Although my life might seem picture perfect, I struggle with depression. Art and the beach are a huge form of meditation for me and help me release my worries. To be able to share those feelings of happiness and aloha with the world through my art is an indescribable feeling and is now my sole purpose to create.

I share this not to gain sympathy but to hopefully use my platform as an artist and influencer to help others. If you are suffering from feelings of sadness or anxiety please seek help. You are not alone. Sending you all love and aloha 💕

It's been a while since I posted and honestly I forgot for a sec that it's good to post WIP's and developmental stuff too.
So here is something different I've been thinking up lately; a superhero character! 😲 he is known as "Society" and he just wants to save us from our angry, divided times.

Last Summer around this time I was prepping to reveal a body of work that was different from what others were used to seeing from me. I had been appreciative of the illustration and mural work that I had been getting but I wanted to do even more. I at one time felt I needed to continue solely doing the illustrative style because people enjoyed it and while I enjoy drawing I also have other important aspects of my life that I want to be expressed. Those aspects are the intersection of Bisexuality & disability in relation to my own identity. Those were things I was always teetering around with my work but my show “How Nice” was the pedal to the gas that really started me trying to move my art in a direction that was truer to myself and well being. I wanted to get out of my own comfort zone while challenging my existing audience to new ideas and ways of thinking they otherwise might not have been exposed to. Doing that is scary and exciting. Sometimes as artist’s we get so pigeonholed in one direction that it scares us to grow + move forward. Making good art though isn’t about style though to me, it’s about telling stories and sharing ideas regardless of medium. I was able to surround myself with so many amazing people who were just encouraging of me when I was just so scared to move to a new direction. I saw a therapist (and still do) which helped me work through things. I started taking care of myself. All of these aspects lead to a drastic shift in my work that was the show “How Nice” at Murmur. It’s almost been a year since this show debuted and my life has really changed. It has given me more opportunities to express my assets in life through illustration, photography, video and performance. It hasn’t all been great though - I have lost clients, I have lost people who couldn’t understand what I was doing & I needed to spend more time taking care of myself this past year. More now than ever telling our stories are important. Creating “How Nice” taught me that I am not alone and if I am not alone, neither are you. #art #photo #photography #artisticprocess #illustration

Some days are ugly. 😕 Abandon ship! #artisticprocess #artistsoninstagram #silkpainting

Archetype essential oil blends are happening! Priestess, Queen, and Warrioress prototypes here. ✨

It felt so good to get into the truly creative part of the business. I meditated, burned sage and palo santo to prepare my energy. ✨

I was really flowing, but I let my partner interrupt me to talk about booking flights. Oops. 🙈


I realize I need to set boundaries around my creative time. ✨

If you’re doing creative work, do you set boundaries when you create? And do you have rituals to set the space for creating?

A lot of my artmaking involves layers. If you've seen any of the paint, cut, collage pieces in my feed, this is especially evident. Working this way allows me to think on several dimensions at once while also being completely 100% focused on one thing at a time which probably sounds like a big conundrum, but makes total sense in my brain. So when my brush is moving, I am 100% in that, I have a vague idea to start, but then I let the intuitive process take hold, and if my hand moves somewhere different, or the paint behaves in a way I didn't expect, I go with it and react to whatever is happening in real life, having already let go of the original intent or idea. Then, I pause. Now is the time to curate, to decide the next step towards the vague whole. I decide on a next move, another layer, and then once again, I dive deep into the intuitive process until it's time to surface again and see how close I am to the shoreline before the cycle continues. And this is how it goes until the end on almost every piece. Maybe this is a lot of people's process, so it might seem really simple, but being able to articulate it is new for me.

Yesterday, I was packing and moving my books, and I realized I've been in this super complicated love triangle my whole life between creative writing and art. I have always gone through phases where I focus on one or the other completely, then shift, back and forth, and back and forth. Each time they get longer. So I guess I have been working on layers, just as I do in my art, hoping that one day the whole can come together in some way. But in the moment, I'm diving as deeply as I can without worrying in the slightest of the whole. .

Postcard 5 of 20

Fifth postcard of the series ^}^ As you can see I continue working with watercolour and ink. The lightness of the media made me want to do a bird. It looks like I am going more and more the figurative way, but that might change, or not?

I am be posting 20 handmade postcards.
Ask me if you see one you would like and I might send/give it to you. ^)^

My mojo is back and I’m loving it. I have had a lot of other things on my mind lately, so painting took a back seat for a couple of weeks. Now I have decided that I can’t do everything and I’m choosing to do the things that are important and that I love. I feel calmer and more relaxed as I let the unimportant things disappear from my daily thoughts. This is my latest abstract landscape and I’m loving its progress. .
