Work in progress 🌊🌊🌊 things are happening, shifting and changing. A huge part of making these paintings is the unknown. It takes days for the final results to come through. So I’ve been taking lots of time to sketch and daydream up my next set of paintings while I wait for the layers to morph and dry.
Here’s sending you 🤗ENCOURAGEMENT and JOY!
The gorgeous delphinium symbolises cheerfulness and goodwill, as it reaches and reaches to the sky ☀️! .
Also, if you happen to see scorpions 🦂 roaming about your home (hope not), they’re supposed to cure scorpion stings - but please don’t take my word for it❗️

MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOLKS! Sunday, 8/19 at noon @withwildhearts_co and I will be opening up our collaboration pieces for sale! There will be six pieces available between both of our shops. Be there or be square 😉
“Tyranny in a Hard Place,” today’s art spotlight. The artist arranged the pieces “according to what felt most pleasing.” Do you have your tickets for the art show? Tickets available on our website. Link in bio.
Do you have an event that you want to remember forever? A wedding, baby shower, anniversary, graduation, job promotion, orrrrr anything that involves a good bouquet of flowers?! Hit me up. Let's turn those blooms into a lasting memory. Currently turning @valerie.wolf's florals for the @broadstudios opening party into scarves for all my babes. Can't wait to share the result! 💃
This earth, this land, brings forth in me a desire, a life force, a sensuous being that is buzzing with sexual energy and wild longing.
Be it from stroking petals soft and deep, to filling my body with the scent of leaves ripe with volatile oils. From watching the pollen erupt onto the air in golden clouds, the fruit getting plumper and juicier with each passing day, the hum and buzz of life, of creation of birth, sex and death that is held in each pore of each being I rest my eyes on. I long to taste it all to have its juices running from my chin down my arms, to tickle each of my cells with mosses, lichens and seeds.
And I realise that this huge and powerful surge of energy could be seen as purely sexual but actually it is more than that, it is creative and brings with it a need to create, to grow, to embrace life and suck it of its juice, it’s medicine and it’s once in a life time experiences.
This feeling, this desire does not appear in concrete boxes or on street corners.
This only comes when I step out and touch, feel and come together with the wild. This feeling is my wild untamed spirit, my animal body coming home to where it belongs. Amongst growth, rebirth, beauty and uninhibited magnificence. This feeling is bliss, happiness, wonderment and lust for embodied life, it is an addiction to feeling with all my senses, with my tongue, my heart, my eyes, my ears, my fingertips and my longing. It is the outer wild singing to my inner wild and bringing it out to play. ...................................................
