Making a Living Making Art: The Best Retirement Plan!

We artists have to see our career with a long-term vision.As crazy as this may sound, by choosing to make a living from my art I feel that I am preparing for my retirement. I’ve been painting for 20 years and I have sold way over 50% of what I created.If we work seriously, diligently, regularly, passionately, not only our technique and talent get better but also our list of collectors and fans naturally grows.I am confident that when I will be 80 years old most of what I will paint will sell and that’s the best retirement plan I...

Dear Kali

Dear Kali

Kali is by far my favourite goddess!Raised as a good Catholic girl I was not allowed to express anger or any uncomfortable emotions for that matter. Left to cry as a baby, told not to cry as a child and not to speak back as a teenager, I learned to bottle up sadness which slowly built up into repressed anger. Kali teaches me that expressing my anger, although terrifying, can be purifying. Women have an especially difficult time with being okay expressing their ‘inner Kali’. Society in general ridicules angry women, somehow we hold the image...

Breaking The Ocean

Breaking The Ocean

We are stardust, intelligence and order; gold formed from the dying stars only to fall from the firmament to the birthing earth. Particles condense and a journey unfolds.  We are all naturally interconnected; it’s so vast we cannot grasp or understand. Ours is a story so archetypal, so universal, yet so profoundly unique and precious. First and last breaths are like bookends of the story. Childhood repeats itself in the joy of seeing (our) children. Small troubles can feel like a storm and can even become one! It is often because of our...

Eye in the Universe

The power to create illusions is vastly more significant to understand than to understand reality. J. Krishnamurti Last year I was at a 10-day meditation retreat. One evening I was overcome with the idea that someone had committed suicide in one of the cabins. I saw all the signs, it all made sense in my mind to the point that it became so real; I didn’t sleep all night, I was sweating and panicking waiting for the waking hours to alert someone. When I reported the news and was told who was sleeping in that cabin and that everything was...

Why I am optimistic

Why I am optimistic

This painting called Integral Map 1.0 talks about our human evolution. We are certainly going through interesting times. The only way I can relax and be with the turbulent flow is by looking at the current events on a larger scale. We do need to change our habits and behaviour on a global level… and unfortunately, most of us were not going to change without sh*t hitting the fan. We are actually quite fortunate so far, it could be much worst, most of us still have an enormous variety of food on our table. Even if this lasts 18 months...

A Successful Solo Show

She Flourishes exhibition is over and I am celebrating its success!My show had ‘best sales in 10 years’ for the gallery, my workshop there had a waiting list (first time it ever happened at that gallery) and the response from the community was amazing.

He said he’s never seen anything like it...
