Peek a boo!

Becs from catching sun dust invited me to this blog tour, what a lovely name, you can read more about her name on her about page. I was a little distracted with a lot of work behind the scenes! But I'm so happy to introduce you to her go over to her and read her answers to the questions!

So, let me dive into the question of this tour.

What am I working on?

My new adventure is right around the corner! I will share the link of my website this Wednesday! I'm over excited, on to a total new adventure and at the same time old trusted things I learned in my life. Exploring who we are. How we want to feel. Who we want to be.
Becoming visible. Being brave and share my artwork with the world.
My clipart shop is ready to share with all of you!

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

We all are unique!
Just being and owning who we are makes us special. My artwork and brand is infused with lots of light and white! I love space.
I think the important thing is just to stay true to our self and who we are. To stretch always a little out of our comfort zone and grow into the direction we desire.
Never stop dreaming up higher versions of who we want to be and feel into our body what feelings resonate with us and make us feel the way we desire.

Why do I create what I do?

Creating is a big part of who I am.
We express us with what we create. How we create our life and what we surround us, defines who we are. We are free to choose, when we let go of fear and exceptions. We can be who we desire and lots of little decisions are what makes the big change!

How does your creating process work?

I just go with the flow and try to push myself into unknown territory every know and then. Feeling a little stretch and uncomfortable is the way we grow. I love to push myself against the borders.
To create freely I love to set up a clean space, clean my home from old energies and clutter. Making space for the new to come. I'm often inspired by colors and feelings, they are the guides of my artwork.
Flowers and nice little things inspire me and influence my work.

A sketch a day, Week 10

Sketching, daily, this little time has emerged into my day and has become something I just remember doing.
A habit.
Some daily calm time for myself, following my word of the year, create.

A sketch a day, Week 8

Still sketching, little progress, and sometimes I feel like making one step forth and two back again. It is the daily practice that makes a difference over the long time. I'm now so used to just take my pencil into my hand and do it. This habit has melted into my day.

We all are artists!

Since my newest adventures brings me straight back to art and being an artist (I avoided everything in this direction, since I just suffered so much in art school and felt my creativity being suffocated) I thought a lot about what it needs to be an artist. With a pair of fresh eyes, a bunch of confidence and knowing how I am, I have now a whole new point of view.

Does it really matter if one is talented?
I don't think that it is the most important part of being an artist. I think firsthand it needs dedication to do it daily, to express your feelings and emotions from deep inside you, being vulnerable and ready to show who you are.
This needs confidence and courage. Every day. And there is one very effective thing that helps us get into this place, get in any place we ever desire.

It is practice.

We learn by doing, we move forward by creating and expressing.
There are so many reasons to hold back and hesitate. There are so many fears, pressure and expectations we put on us. We are afraid of being judged, by them around us or by our own self.

I truly believe, that everyone of us is creative. We are all creators and we are the ones to shape or life into the form we desire.

We long to express our self, in so many different ways, because we need to define who we are. We all want to know, what makes us the very person we are. So we seek to express our self, far not only with things we learned to call art, like painting or drawing.
There are so many aspects of expression and just being shapes us into who we are and become.

We have the freedom to decide and become the person we want to be. It needs a little bit of dedication and braveness to follow up with what we imagine our highest own self to be. How we imagine our self to be and then start take action in this very direction, we will become.

We all seek for attention. We want to be seen. We want to be heard. We want to have a confirmation in what we do.
Because we are searching who we are and this attention is like a sign on the road, the outside view to show us if we are on the right track and go in the direction we imagine for us to be the best.
