What I love about Valentine’s Day: so many people open their hearts and send love to others AND themselves.
What I hate about Valentine’s Day: the love fest stops when it’s over.
😍I try to practice self love every day. That sounds cheesy, but it is transformational. It’s simple but magic.
I am not surprised at all that my practice manifested this whole self-love portrait project, which has raised over $100 for @athenian_pw and made huge soul changes in dozens of women in our community.
P.S. I know what you gave your sweets for Vday!! (I feel like I hold this secret for all of these women in the community).
My heart feels SO FULL that you honored yourself (and trusted me), and had a portrait made.
100 percent of you revealed that the process was more transformational than you ever expected.
So I ask that we keep the love fest GOING! Don’t stop now—that’s the whole problem with Valentine’s Day! Share your painting with your most trusted and inspiring women friends. Frame it and whisper words of gratitude to it every day.
And if you haven’t gotten one already, do it!!! You wI’ll be so enamored with yourself afterward. 🥰

Drawing mandalas is fun but my latest obsession is drawing fairies. 🧚♂️ 💚
At first it felt strange and really uncomfortable to step out of my comfort zone. I still feel this every time I start a new fairy drawing. I have to start by doing something that’s not very familiar to me. I have to work hard and I fail so many times before I get it right. .
But eventually I get it right. I have a long way to go before I’m where I want to be (and probably by then I have a new goal in mind) but I’m still better than I was the last time. Every time I learn something new and it’s so exciting to see it on paper.
I know you might miss my mandalas but right now I’m so eager to learn more! 💗 Before I finish a picture I already have something new I want to draw, a new pose, a new detail, a new colour combination. .
I’ve enjoyed this journey of growth and I’m happy to see you on this path with me! 💖
I started this business almost 3 years ago, sitting on the floor of my bedroom while breastfeeding my daughter. I breastfed her constantly for over 2 years, during this time I got very little sleep. Art became a necessity for my sanity. Even just a few paint splats on a $3 canvas felt so nourishing. I have always been an artist and I had some success in the late 2000’s, but between growing older, working 9-5, marriage, a house and a baby...art had faded into my background. It felt like this old dream I once had...that was not attainable. I felt not good enough. I would scroll on IG and sit in awe of all of these incredible artists...I was blown away mostly be their courage. Courage to not only make the art—but also to share it with the world. I truly couldn’t imagine. The thought scared me to death. In 2015, I began to routinely see an energy healer. I started to intensively work on my trapped emotions, old traumas, and overall spiritual well being. I left no stone unturned. The floodgates opened. “This is within you to do” was resonating deep within my heart. I kept hearing it over and over. I knew not how or when...but I knew I was going to attempt to make the kind of art that I saw within my Soul and share it with the world. I had a lot to learn. I needed time, patience, vision,...an open heart. And so I began. I didn’t worry about perfection...I just did what I could. Done was better than perfect. I began sharing my words, my stories, my life, & my heart. I became vulnerable in a new and safe way. I never planned on that, but I am so thankful my life has unfolded like this. Here I am today, feeling like I am finally making the art that reflects my Soul. And I am just getting started. ✨ Sending you love to reach your dreams 💗 This video is the underpainting in Raw Umber oil paint by @zenartaupplies 🕊 Muse is @elizabethrsawatzky 💜 Music is “Pure & Simple” by Sacred Dance 💕
Seven of Cups
🗝keywords: fantasy, illusion, wishful thinking
💧When upright, the Seven of Cups highlights the importance of sentiments and images that come to mind during moments of reflection and contemplation. Such imaginings may reveal our wildest desires but they may not be grounded in reality. Many possibilities seem available, making it difficult to decide which path to follow. At some point we must stop daydreaming, soberly assess our options, and make hard choices. Otherwise we risk wandering in a state of confusion or unreality, like the fictional character Walter Mitty.” Excerpt From
Llewellyn's Complete Book of Tarot

A Poem Of Self-Adoration From The Jungle:
Caressing every inch of my smooth skin with fingertips, feeling the electricity vibrate each cell filling every pore with the frequency of love. Jungle love, the soundtrack to sacred sensuality. She opens. Trusting energy rises and races through and out. Caressing. Stroking. Breathing deeply the way that comes without thought - purely present feeling only. The waves of pleasure ripple thru- a bird responds with approval. The jungle is alive and vibrating the Radiance of love. I am the jungle. I am love. I am selflove. I am love. 🔥artwork: @alexisrakun
She was a galaxy,
not one planet,
she was a forest,
not one tree.
She was an ocean,
not just one river.
But the world had taught her to close and be as small as could be.
But she woke up one day, longing for that little girl. Who knew she was living in a small corner and not her entire inner world.
And so she slowly unlocked each door,
deciding she wanted to play,
no longer hide…
And that girl was finally free, the one who carried a dancing universe of galaxies, forests and oceans inside. ~S.C Lourie
