single 5 tips pic

I’m a traveling artist, a gypsetter, a rarebird.
Every picture I post is designed to reflect this combined aesthetic,
into a single visual message.

 I’m launching a Free Brand Clarity Course for Artist!
Yes, I get a lot of questions about how I’ve been successful on Instagram and the best ways for Artist to make money?  So I thought it would be the easiest and most helpful to put those answers in a Free Video Course…

Gelliplate Layers- Video

Today I was working in the studio on layers…creating a rich depth of color and texture in my work…

One of my favorite tools for this, believe it or not is the Gelliplate…

I decided to create a short video to show you how I do it….

My biggest tip to create rich texture and color in 2-3 pulls is to begin with a dirty plate, (one in which you left old paint to dry from a previous session)…this is 50% of what makes this technique successful…

Enjoy❣

  
Much Love and Peace…

Pages From My 365 Days Project…

I started this project on January 1st of this year…the purpose was to bring focus and direction to my time in the studio….

I must say that this project exceeded my expectations…l found more inspiration than I was able to create or translate into other media!  Plus the added bonus of beautiful richly textured journals….I’ll do a year end reveal…

Until then here are more page compilations from the past few weeks…

Enjoy!

Creative Conversations – 2-17-15 – “Dehumanizing of Humanity”

“Dehumanizing of Humanity”

This Conversation starts with me talking about my 365 day Journal.  Journaling for me is a way for me to process lots of things in my world.  For some artist it’s about creating beautiful things, others it’s political expression, or women’s issues however, my art work is about raising consciousness.  My own first and then hopefully the viewer will explore their own cosmic reality and accessing their higher greater self.

In this Creative Conversation I will explore some of the topics that I think about, which informs my artwork, and my healing work as a Reiki Master and a Creativity Coach.

Love and Peace

Creative Conversation – Introduction

Creative Conversations…..

is a new format that I have begun to share my thoughts and ideas about the world we live in and how I’m interpreting events in order to remain my most creative self.  I have found that with all of the worldly forces that continue to press in on our personal space and time, trying more to dominate our very being , it has become essential to employ techniques and gather understanding in order to survive and THRIVE…

Please join me for these chats…and join in as well!
