❝The joy is in the play...❞


My goal is to document and share my work in this space in order to inspire others to add art to each day. I work in a lot of different mediums, often simultaneously. So the blog is about my creative experiments. You'll find art journaling, drawing, painting, mandalas, doodles, patterns, sewing paper, acrylics, gouache and index cards galore. And creative prompts! So it's a mix-tape of all sorts of stuff.
