Having a little fun...

... to cut and paste and paint and scrape.  So much fun, in fact, that I think I'll make more!

A bit of newness...

... and more to come.

A painting that my daughter requested, and definitely one I had fun doing.

It's been a bit of a journey over the past couple of years.  I had to take a step back from my artwork to re-evaluate things and figure out where I was going and what I wanted to do.  It hasn't always been easy and a lot of soul-searching has been involved.  But in the end it has paid off.  I think I can finally say that I'm revitalised and that's what I definitely needed.

And so I'm working on reconstructing Chichiboulie.  I had to let it go for a while in order to get my bearings.  I haven't yet figured out all the details of where I'm going and how things will look in the end, but I'm definitely getting there.  One thing is for certain, I will be basing my work more on original paintings and one-offs in order to keep the creative flow and expression going.  I know there will be obstacles to working this way, but in the end it's where my heart lies.

I hope you'll visit my shop on Etsy as I update with new work for both children and adults.
