Raven and Crow Series

Raven and Crow Series

I love creating in a series. Across a few pieces, I can find a colour scheme that I enjoy and problem solve design challenges while finding some variation and interest between the pieces.

In this time lapse video, I share the making of a mixed media Raven and Crow series. I used wood cradle boards in various sizes and created 7 pieces at one time. Each piece has its own inspirational saying.

Follow along and create your own series combining images and words that resonate for you. I downloaded royalty free raven and crow images from Pixaby. This is a fun, relaxing way to create inspirational art you can hang on your wall or give as a gift. The wood cradle boards are ready to hang and are a nice hard surface to collage on to. 

Arts' Medicines- Why Making Art is Healing

Arts' Medicines- Why Making Art is Healing

With many expectations surrounding us from multiple sources—work, children, and spouses— life is stressful, fast-paced and overwhelming at times. It can be challenging to remain grounded and focused on the real priorities of life. Many of us are exhausted and/or experiencing depression and anxiety. These challenges are a part of my life and I suffer with anxiety on a regular basis. Making art is an effective way to bring balance, feel energized and restored.
