To be perfectly honest, this project has given me more than I could’ve hoped for. Over the four years that it took to create, (avoidance, maybe?!?), I healed so many past traumas, many of which were beyond my own conscious awareness. I’m happy to say that I’m not the girl that started this project anymore.Continue reading “Inner Child Artist Oracle is prepared to go live! But does it do what I say it does?”

How Inner Child Artist Oracle Came To Be: The Progression of the Process is Sticky Sometimes
The deck started out small, and was meant for personal use only, but it transformed itself many times as I went along. It soon became huge and MESSY!!!

Inner Child Artist: The How’s and Why’s
These are my drawings in response to the cards in my Inner Child Artist deck. It’s hard to say which I prefer: the initial imagery or the elicited imagery… Inner Child Artist was created over the many YEARS I spent teaching elementary art. Much of the imagery is from art projects that I facilitated andContinue reading “Inner Child Artist: The How’s and Why’s”
Characters just fall off my brush!
This is a video of my artwork from 2016 to present.
“Baby, you’ve been prolific!”
Although I always try to see the good in other people, sometimes it is necessary to defend yourself with truth. The proof is always in the pudding. According to one person, (whom shall remain unnamed and unseen): “Since when do you work?! You’ve been busy sitting around and doing nothing while your husband works hisContinue reading ““Baby, you’ve been prolific!””
Commissioned Worker, I am…
Hey Guys! I love drawing people and I have gotten good enough that I am able to catch a likeness to them. When I show people my work, I always get asked to draw for them. It is flattering and it is a lot of work! But, I do like it (as my work!) andContinue reading “Commissioned Worker, I am…”

IMPORTANT COOPTYLEW UPDATES!
Artsy Tarotist I draw and paint the cards to learn the meaning of them, and by doing this, I learn the cards in such a way that it’s not memorization, but it is actual learning and integration of the new knowledge. I definitely suggest researching the symbols on the card and then trying to drawContinue reading “IMPORTANT COOPTYLEW UPDATES!”
