It’s spring and have been soaking up the beautiful golden rays of sun before the blistering summer weather hits. I just love how the gentle sunlight warms up my heart and soul. I love spring, cause it’s always a time for something new or renewed—fresh new leaves, the droplets of rain left by the passing showers, and the busying little humming birds so eagerly flying by.
Besides taking walks to absorb all this goodness in, have been working quietly with more local boutiques to bring my little “babies” to more communities. Am so glad to have have worked with the following BC stores since the beginning of 2019, all of which are dedicated to bringing lots of real, lovingly made items to people and building up a sense of community amongst everyone: Banyen Books & Sound (Kitsilano Vancouver, the now not only carry my book, How to Take a Wa-style Bath, but my greeting cards as well!), Second Nature Home (Commercial Drive Vancouver), The Handpicked Home (White Rock), Scout & Co. (Steveston Richmond), Spark Art Collective (Mission).
Honestly speaking, I have been out of my element since my relocation over 2 1/2 years ago—yes, am still trying to feel more grounded and “at home” back in where I grew up. Am so grateful of everyone who has made this journey of mine so meaningful.
I have also been working on a new illustration series that I will be sharing with you all in a little while. Since I really concentrated last year on my “bubbles” paintings, I needed to pick up my pen and ink again and reacquaint myself them. Was soooo glad I did! I felt refreshed, and giddy. Am very blessed to be doing art in different styles, whimsical blotted line drawings, calming watercolour “bubbles” paintings, fun small-batch greeting cards & prints, and writing here and there. All of which, nurtures me as a person, helps me grow every day, connects with countless wonderful people, and be a part of something that is way bigger than myself. For that, am forever grateful.
