We are quantum beings and every path traveled, untraveled, and every moment is infinitely branching out in the multiverse. Whatever you want for you life is ALWAYS possible and the truth is that it IS happening in one of those multiverses. So why not make what you want out of life happen here in THIS reality? . .

My artistic space, aka my sanctuary! I love curating my spaces to feel ultra personalized and a reflection of who I am. On the occasion I misbehaved as a child and my poor mother, whose patience I regretfully loved to test, would ground me to my bedroom for a day as punishment...but I secretly ENJOYED it! Oh you mean my wonderful room with all my toys, arts/craft supplies and beautiful nature artifacts I’ve collected?! Sure mom, great “punishment.” Point is, my room has always been a refuge and a space I enter to recharge. I fall into the category of introverts who can keep themselves occupied alone for hours because I have a myriad of creative hobbies and have no problem being alone. ✨🙏 .

This whiteboard wall was always empty at work. One day it hit me and I realized I should fill it up with something beautiful! I got into this intense flow of bliss and ultimate creativity! I had visions flash before me and I kept on drawing. Hours literally flew by, I lost all sense of time and I was floating in my own universe, spiraling out from the core of my being. When the muse awakens ✨

How to stipple a gradient 🖊✨ Swipe to see the whole thing! Supplies you’ll need: - 6B or 4B pencil
- HB pencil
- Fine ink pen, 03 or 05 (micron)
- Paper - Patience :) If this is your first time creating a gradient, try it out first in pencil. You will get to practice shading before moving on to pen since making mistakes in pen can’t be fixed so easily. I used 6B & HB graphite. 6B for the dark, HB for the light. I have an example, swipe to see it! Once you feel comfortable understanding shading dark to light, start stippling! I outlined a square, even for someone who has been stippling for 11 years, I need an outline! It helps me stay within the lines so my work looks clean. Crack out a fine ink pen, I’m using Sakura Micron Pigma. You can find them at your local art store or Amazon. Begin by starting with a more saturated grouping of dots on one end and then spacing them further apart on the light end. It’s okay to go back and forth at certain parts if you realized you missed a spot. Patience is key when stippling, there really is no way to rush perfectly spaced dots 🤷🏻‍♀️ I wish it could be easier but it’s not! I think that is why this process is so beautiful. Stippling really asks you to sit down and focus and slowly, carefully complete an activity! I hope you enjoy my favorite style of art. Thank you 😊
