See My Art That Made It Onto TV!

Fresh, Fun and Funky with a bit of Ferrero Rocher! I've been dabbling with a new style.  I'm still using my gold spiral patterned backgrounds but the subject matter has changed slightly. Although I'm still (and will probably never give up) painting my poppies onto these backgrounds, I'm experimenting with contemporary form.  It's given me... Continue Reading →

Expressing Dis-Ease Through Painting and Poetry

Forest Scenes From the Studio I'm SO getting back into painting my tree figures at the moment and it's about time too! After the guided meditation I went through at the beginning of last year (2014), that showed me a myriad of these images and profoundly nudged me in that artistic direction, I'm actually taking the full-on...

Astonishing Ways to Make Your Home Look Like a Luxury Retreat

Boring Is as Boring Does — Are You Showing Yourself Up? (Photo's at the end of blog) Have you ever walked into someone else's home only to feel that something is amiss?  They have a nice house, perhaps even nice furniture, but something is definitely lacking — you look around you and all you see...

De-Stress with Free Colour Therapy for You and Your Family

Feeling a Little Uptight Lately? I sure have been!  That's why I started doodling again (sounds rather dubious, doesn't it?). I used to draw fantasy pictures when I was younger (in my teens) to relieve anxiety or tension and it really worked.  I found myself reverting back to it again this week and it really...

Painting Pink Floyd — Soldiering Through the Minefield of Emotion

Avoidance and Pain "Sometimes our garbage makes the best fertilizer." I just want to express from the get go that this has been one of the most difficult paintings for me to bring into manifestation.  I started off this journey with hopeful optimism which soon turned into pain, anguish and avoidance.  I literally avoided my...

The artwork above and below come from an interesting article I picked up from the Fast Company website (click the link below to take you to the article). 100 Years Ago, French Artists Predicted The Future With Eerie Accuracy  I think some of the images were indeed, very strange, but some were eerily smack on the...

Welcome to my Wonderland!

I chose a Wonderland theme for my site because I feel like I am skipping down that proverbial 'Rabbit Hole' —  I want to take as many people down with me...that sounds rather ambiguous now, doesn't it? If you are new here or would like a recap on who I am and what I'm about,... Continue Reading →

Bizarre Contrasts: McDonalds and Karnak Temple, Egypt!

This is my continuation blog from last weeks post, Come Journey Through Picturesque Egypt With me (click on link to read). I mentioned in this blog that I had something surreal to show you — the clue is in the McDonalds sign.  We stopped off for lunch and had a view of Karnak Temple, which is approximately 5000...

Come Journey Through Picturesque Egypt With Me

I can't quite put into words what my recent trip to Egypt meant to me, so I decided to lay it out visually instead. Seeing that today is my 'art blog' — I have selected some of my 'prize' shots to hopefully tantalize and awaken the curiosity in your travel taste buds... Experience Beyond the Realms of Comprehension Although it... Continue Reading →

Confessions of a Tree-Hugger

Branching Out With Trees I love trees.  Any kind. They are captivating, calming, beautiful, mysterious, life-giving (not only converting carbon-dioxide into oxygen but housing many a life-form), shade-providing and gracious. So many poems and great works of art have taken root around trees — they certainly capture the human imagination. To cut what could turn out... Continue Reading →

Painting the Windows of the Soul — Eyes

Look into my Eyes There is nothing more captivating than looking into the eyes of a living creature.  So much can be said without words when you look into someone or somethings eyes. They are said to be the windows of the soul and for good reason — eyes are so expressive.  And it is... Continue Reading →

Heaven on Mother Earth…

The Dream of a New Beginning in 2012 A few weeks before the end of last year I sat down at my easel in deep thought.  I wanted to attempt to paint a picture of how I would like to see the New Earth.  What is my ultimate Utopia?  What does it look like?  What... Continue Reading →

Ignite Your Creative Flame!

 The search for purpose or meaning in our lives is rooted in the deepest feelings that stir within. To find our unique spark, that will ignite the flame. That which burns to give birth to creation. For it is creativity that leads us to fulfilling our dreams and stokes our fires. A world without creativity would be... Continue Reading →

Why I love to paint flowers…

When I paint a flower I feel an overwhelming bliss - an excitement to capture the beauty and magic of what I see and feel when I am in their glorious presence. I am never happier than when I have a house full of flowers and the scent hangs on the air. Or when I am in my garden... Continue Reading →

Fun with Fruit and Vegetables!

As promised, I am continuing with the unveiling of my Vege-Tate Gallery in today's Art Blog. If you missed out on last weeks blog — here is a recap:  How many carrots does it take to screw in a light bulb? Here are the last of the designs (for now — I see this as... Continue Reading →

How Many Carrots does it take to Screw in a Light Bulb?

I'm not too sure what the answer to the joke is...perhaps none as they were all rooted to the spot? The Vege-Tate Gallery — Beginnings... My idea for a Vege-Tate Gallery grew into full blossom when my husband and I decided to try and plant a vegetable garden around the back of our house. This... Continue Reading →

Christmas Gift Ideas…Part 2

A little bit of silliness never went astray! Over the past couple of months my husband and I (no, I am not the queen) have been trying to plant our own vegetable garden.  This is not as simple as it would usually sound as we live near Cape Point and have baboons for neighbours.  And...

Gift Ideas for Christmas…Part 1

Part 1 - Getting an Idea As unbelievable as it is, Christmas is starting to loom over the horizon.  I don't even want to go into the fact that time is definitely speeding up because it is of no actual help to us when we start to think of the panic and mayhem of the... Continue Reading →

I live in Cape Town, in the False Bay area.  We are privileged to get the annual migration of whales to our seas every year round about July/August.  It is such... Continue Reading →
