Freedom In Felt – My Filzfein Felted Collar

For years and years and YEARS, I've been searching for a felted collar that I could feel embody the wyrd person I am and which would accompany me on my evolvement from a broken human being to a secure, courageous, spirited woman.

It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

I have just realized that it’s been a week, A WEEK since I last posted. That was not intentional, the last seven days were just everywhere and my routine was thrown off-kilter. Today I'm going to let you know about the things that have been getting conjured up creatively and what’s been going on in other corners… Continue reading It’s Been A Heavy Day, But I Have Things To Tell

The Kid Who Loved The Dark – The Groke

If, like me, you grew up in the 90s, it's more than likely you watched Moomin, the Japanese-Finnish-Dutch animation television series, also known as 'Moominvalley,' 'Tales from Moominvalley,' and 'Adventures from Moominvalley.'

January’s Self-Portraits

I berated myself for not taking more risks, for not exploring dozens of new editing techniques, for not refining the techniques I'd… Continue reading January’s Self-Portraits

Making A Self-Portrait In An Hour

I set myself a challenge today - to try and create a self-portrait in an hour. This is something I'd never attempted to do before, nor even thought about doing prior to this morning. Considering I can sometimes take the best part of a day to create a single portrait that I'm happy with, creating… Continue reading Making A Self-Portrait In An Hour

May Your Hunger Guide You – Words For Creatives Going Forward (Part I)

May your hunger guide you through nights wilder still. Nafre. I thought I'd start this post off with a quote from Nafre, a ridiculously wise friend of mine. Last week he signed a message off with 'May your hunger guide you through nights wilder still,' and I've been using it as a source of creative… Continue reading May Your Hunger Guide You – Words For Creatives Going Forward (Part I)
