I believe color tells a story when words cannot. I believe my story can sometimes only be told by paint. I believe in the healing power of art. I believe our tears are holy. Sacred. Tears can cleanse and wash away the dirt of the soul. And sometimes my tears come out in paint. Maybe if you sit and listen, you will be able to hear my story through these paintings. And maybe. Just maybe. You will recognize your own story in mine. (All of these originals available here.)
I know. It’s about time. Is it really April already? Oh my! Time to dust off my little blog.
This last year has been a journey for me. I have so much to share about depression and anxiety and loving yourself and health stuff and well, I just don’t even know where to start. So you will forgive me if it takes a bit to all come spilling out? I know it will. I have been writing and creating up a storm. Before we get into all the story telling, I just wanted to share some new pieces with you available in my Etsy store. The art has just been pouring out of me. There is a lot of new good stuff in there. So please check it out.
Here are some fun new one word prints that I have created.
Hey all!!! I just wanted to let you know that I now have my calendars available for purchase in my Etsy store. I know a lot of you buy one every year. So I just wanted to let you know that they were available. I don’t have pics of the actual calendar yet, but they are available for pre-order. I included mostly paintings this time around, with little to no digital art.
You can purchase one here. Thanks so much for all the great sales this last week or so. I am so grateful for all of you who do purchase my products. This is one of paintings included in this year’s calendar.
In light of all the health issues I have been weeding through this year, Emmanuel just feels more significant to me. As my body to continues to heal and slowly get better, I feel all of my expectations falling away for this holiday. I can only do what I can do. And there is a very deep grace that has settled into my heart. Each day is a moment of asking myself, what do I have grace for today? Everything else is simply not important or needed. I don’t know about you, but I desperately need Emmanuel this year. God WITH Us. Maybe you feel that way too? I made this print as a reminder to myself. But maybe you need it too?
It’s now available in my etsy store if you are interested. It’s a smaller size and hopefully a more accessible price. I think it would also make a perfect gift.

Hello friends! I just wanted to share with you a new painting available now in my etsy shop, prints and the original. I think it’s my newest favorite. I took an older painting and revamped it. I think I am just in love with the colors in this painting! I can’t wait to continue in this vein.
Hello everyone!!!! I am super excited to share an awesome book with you today. I am so happy to be a part of her big book launch. I love Traci so much. I have always loved her teaching style! I love her loose free style of creating. I had the honor this last month of reviewing Traci Bautista’s book Printmaking Unleashed. I had so much playing with Traci’s Printmaking Unleashed Kit! If you want to find out more about what I created with the techniques in Traci’s book, head on over to her blog and read all about it!!! And check out all the fun patterns I created from her book.
