To Infinity & Beyond My Dreams

"Nothing is real but dreams and love"

Well this month has been a little bit of a rollercoaster! I have been preparing for my upcoming show at the Hills Secret Garden Festival and madly painting (and majorly stressing) to get all my girls in shape for them to swing in the breeze as they hang in the trees......

Magic, stars, nebulas and my dreams are inspiring me this month, and my lover Luca is my rock and my support system (sorry for being a crazy artist psycho).

Make sure you purchase your ticket for the Festival soon ~ they are quickly selling out! I am so very excited, I can't wait for you to meet my new girls. Hope to see all you beauties there! 

Visit or the FB page to purchase tickets.

PS- my lovely friend Samantha will be hanging her gorgeous creations (in the photos above) from Adorn Felt Finery in the tree's of the festival as well....I modeled for her last year and I am in love with my peacock top she gave me. Such a beautiful woman and beautiful works.

Impulsive Voyages of Discovery

A thousand dreams within me softly burn."
~ Arthur Rimbaud

These past weeks have been filled with surprise, determination and fulfillment. Everything is changing, but with that comes evolution and excitement.

I have been sketching out some more lovely ladies, with two that I am particularly enamored by already...Helena had her gold leaf crown created and some girls are now hanging at the Organic Market and Cafe until March.

I have been reading and absorbing and laughing and crying and playing and giving until I have nothing left to give, and it is all starting to pay off. I of course am filled with doubt and a critical inner voice, I have to learn to pass through this stage and be happy with every outcome, even if it is completely different to how I wanted it to be. I have my dark moments where I am unhappy with my work and what I am doing, but have reached a certain state of peace and calm serenity (this will most definitely change closer to the deadline of the Secret Garden Festival)....

Well here they are then!
