Greetings and thank you for visiting!
As a child I could usually be found with my nose in a book, endlessly daydreaming of far-off destinations, times gone by and magickal kingdoms. The seaside has always been especially enchanting to me. I enjoyed imagining my own fantasy world then. Now I live in it! And paint whatever or whoever curiously appears in my imagination. Sometimes whimsical, sometimes mythological, sometimes dark. I am inspired by nature, the metaphysical, and sacred places I have visited.
I am entirely self-taught. Years ago I did take a drawing class briefly; but apparently my work was so dreadful the instructor admonished me never to pick up a paintbrush! I unfortunately took that advice to heart and many years went by before I was brave enough to try again. After much trial and error, and the destruction of many erasers, I decided to paint whatever catches my fancy! Even if I begin with an idea or short story I’ve created, I never know exactly who or what will materialize on the paper until I start drawing. Posting the stories along with the artwork is something new I have decided to try. I’m interested in all things magickal and the natural world. My quirky sense of humour often appears in my cartoons and dark art.
I am new to blogging. What I enjoy the most is the opportunity to communicate with people all over the world. We may look different from each other, dress differently, worship differently. But our hearts are all the same. We all seek love, acceptance, peace and interaction. Let us celebrate our unique qualities and sentient spirits!
