December Round-Up | Free Beauty Found on the Internet

I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is all around me if I have my eyes open to it. Sometimes I find it as I am going to sleep knowing all of my kids are home, watching our children become their own beautiful people, getting my studio ready for my creative wintering season, strapping the Christmas trees to the top of our car, prayers being answered (and even when they are not), and reading a book during my …

An Artist in Paris | with Julia Muller

In 2018 I knew that 2019 was going to be the last year I led overseas art workshops for the foreseeable future. As much as I loved gathering, teaching and traveling it was the most deep knowing that it was time and I had complete peace about my decision. Then 2020 changed all of our worlds and I was not only grateful that I didn’t have scheduled trips to cancel but it also was a reminder how much I had …

Inspiration is Everywhere | What I am Reading,Watching, Listening to, Learning and What Encourages Play!

I know we just had the November Round-Up but I wanted to share more of what I am reading, watching, listening to and learning etc. There is so much beauty all around us and we have to be choosy to make sure that what we consume (watch, read, listen to, learn) feeds us in beautiful ways. BUT the other message I am writing about is about not just being a consumer of all the beauty. Sit in the quiet. Be …

November Round-Up | Free Beauty Found on the Internet

I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is all around me if I have my eyes open to it.

Of course that last …

  I believe spaces should be used well, beauty should not be saved just for company and home should reflect the hearts that live there and not just the trends we see around us. I am not a designer but putting home together has been my heart for as long as I can remember. Once I became a wife and mother I had to make a choice to either have my perfect space or create a space that was perfect …

Book of Soul with Erin Faith Allen | Instant Access

As I was growing up I dreamed of being an archeologist. I had a deep love of history, stories, and the idea of uncovering what was hidden. It was not until I was a working artist that I found it surprising that so many of the other artists that I admired also had this same dream as a child. I find it beautiful to realize that so many of the artists that I connect with create work with layers, stories …
