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!

365 Days In The Life Of A Journal – Introduction

I want to share with you a personal challenge that I began this year to create meditative art daily in a journal for 365 days…

I’m calling it “365 days in the life of a Journal”

Please join me by creating your own journal it can be artwork, photos, writings… any way you are inspired to communicate with yourself … the most important thing are the internal dialogs because I believe that they keep us awake and aware of our world around us…

Also you can begin at any point in the year and continue forward…it’s not about the number 365 but the challenge to do something daily that adds to our personal awakening…

 

Peace and Love
