New art and New beginnings

Its been a while since my last post but something has occurred to me and that is I missed posting. Its a documentation of my life as an artist, not only do I owe it to you the reader, I also owe it to myself to show up and document and show the world. So whats been happening.........

Evolution is in the air for me, I've been busy creating and finding my voice. I decided to stop fighting and gave myself permission to create whatever came at me. Sometimes creating can feel forced if you feel you are expected to do a certain topic, style etc. 

 I love to create animals and other such topics but I had an itch, urge, whisper or whatever you want to call it to create ladies and fairies! I used to love drawing fairies when I was a little girl, maybe I'm just not done with the topic. When I think of fairies I think of tinkerbell or some other kind creature. Although being kind is a great strength, I also wanted to show other facets such as their strength, power, humility and as the queens and fearless ladies they are.

I also got inspired with my writing and wanted to combine the two in some way. It felt right it felt natural and so Ive decided to run with it. Here is some of the work I have been creating.

She looked into the distance and saw the light. She was no longer afraid to embrace it.
