Quiet Creative Session of Hearts, Abstract Birds, Color, & Fairy Wings

This weekend we had a very quiet Creative Session, but no shortage of creativity! Lots of imagination, hearts, color, wings, feathers, abstract shapes, fairy wings, and coffee, of course! I didn’t get as many photos as I hoped to, but here are the few I captured:  

Creative Session: The Healing Power of Art

Hafa adai! This weekend I had the special honor of leading a Creative Session focusing on the healing power of art. Art has a natural way of being healing, simply through the act of creating. The creative process is something that happens in everyday life… You have an idea, or see something inspiring. You have …

Jellyfish Painting Party Full of Colorful Creations

The Easy Way I Got Started Painting With Acrylics

One of the most common questions I get asked about painting is: What supplies do you use and where do you buy them? I am writing this to save myself from repeating my answer over and over. I mean, I don’t mind, but this will be much more helpful, for me and you. So, painting …

Midsummer Musings and Random Photo Adventures

A collection of photos from random adventures and musings over the last month. A little behind-the-scenes look into my wonderful wacky life including beach trips, night-out selfies, cool little shots of nature, piling slippers onto our cat, windy wild hair, bonfires, surf sessions and sunset skies.

When you don’t like the design on your shirt, PAINT OVER IT!

So I had this shirt that said “L.A.” in a skeleton design. I don’t really have any connection to L.A. whatsoever, so walking around repping it feels weird. But the shirt is comfortable, and whatever. Anyway, I decided to throw some gold paint on it and see what happens. I am very happy with the …

2015 Electric Island Festival: A night of music, art, lights, dancing & people!

EIF was AWESOME!!! An epic night to remember (my sore legs are reminding me just how hard I danced that night) full of music, lights, art, dancing, and all around badassery.

Creative Inspirations, Chilling, & Summer Adventures in Cool-Mom Mode

A Burst of Painting Creations: Abstract Water, Floral, & Wave

The other day, I had one of those bursts of painting inspirations, and blasted out 4 pieces in 24 hours. This happens every once in awhile, where inspiration meets urge and opportunity. Piece after piece, the motto is “paint, paint, and paint some more!” These kinds of days are so satisfyingly exhausting, I love them …

Create Your Own Art Space, Even Under Challenging Circumstances

You can create art in just about any space if you get a little creative. When I got back into painting in 2007, it was not an ideal situation for creating art, or so I thought. My boys were 2-years old and 8-months old, and I was overwhelmed with life. We lived in a small studio space …

Pulled Out My Old Portfolio and Found These Gems

I recently found my old portfolio from college (was that really almost 15 years ago?!), and pulled out some old gems. These were from my “Drawing 1” class, using pencil, charcoal, oil pastels and pen, not particularly my favorite mediums. I loved sketching though, I’ve been sketching and drawing pretty much since I was able …
