meet Freya...

She was watching quietly...with her eyes half-closed...Shimmering light through the cracks in the sky came at dawn. Happy she was, as usual, although this time was different....She smiled.
The Spirit of Hare beckons you down a mysterious path. Sacred to the Moon, the Hare embodies intuition, transformation, adaptability and secret Freya

Garden of Whispers

Through the Garden of Whispers she went....The wind was laughing, gently touching her face. Her curious eyes looked around....There She was.

Willow - The Fox...My Woodlands Spirit Animal Series...

Giggling gently, still slightly sleepy after a long night, always finding her way is "Willow". If you happen to befriend the fox, you may be called to use or develop quick thinking and adaptability as she does. Responsive, sometimes cunning, this power animal is a great guide when you are facing tricky situations.
She sees through deception, finding quickly her way around through obstacles and resistance...

Being inspired by a fox totem, you can work at developing the sharpness of your mental skills: Analytical intelligence, power of deduction, observation can come into play more powerfully in how you deal with daily matters or bigger projects.

Fox totem wisdom and the ability to find your way around

The fox as a spirit guide offers good teachings about getting around obstacles instead of confronting them head to head. You might find that you could renew or be smarter about how you deal with areas of resistance in your life or projects.
Having the fox as spirit animal, you may be guided to learn from lessons in a way that may feel like you are being challenged or sometimes even being tricked. To make the most of the fox totem wisdom, keep a strong sense of humor and be smart of the lessons you learn.
The power of the fox is a great support to develop your ability to find the sharpest and smartest solution to any problem. Call on the fox guidance when you feel lost and need help finding you way.

This Little Pumpkin with adorable eyes is...Pola. One of the three beautiful siblings I had a pleasure to take the photo of just recently...When children grow, they tend to be more aware of the camera and run away from it... I tried my best to capture them without interrupting too much their games and play...It is not always the easiest approach, but I like the documentary side of lifestyle photography, natural settings and light. I love to catch on camera their little smiles, whispers, curiosity or just pure joy...soo precious and priceless...

Woodlands spirits...Which animal are you?

Do you remember my brooches? I had this idea in mind for a while to grow, as with my "Kitty-A-Day" project, this is just a sketch, final illustrations will contain crayons and hopefully my beloved watercolors. At the moment I am quite busy with my family life and sketching the ideas out is a way of compromising things a bit and still feel sane!

Kitty-a-day in May 08/31

As month May progress my collection of Kittens grow. I made eight so far, so I am two short but with a bunch of three little Kittens at home it is hard sometimes to keep up with good work ;-). I have some plans for them already, it is hard not to as they are pretty cute. Hope you like them as well.

work in progres....sketches

I keep myself busy lately, ideas flying around like butterflies in the summer. I try to stay low with the amount of mediums I use as I don't feel confident enough to execute my ideas just yet. So.. I keep drawing with my beloved pencils for now, trying to add some color with crayons and hopefully experiment with watercolors as a final touch at some point in the future. Patience..something I need to master as well. Kitty-a-day everyday in May and Calendar Girls seem to be good projects to start with...having more to come. Stay tuned.


An amazing thing about children, kids, babies is they are attracted to water as well as to the fire. It intrigues them deeply and I can't blame them as it is something fascinating and hypnotizing about both. My little girls can't go by a puddle without trying to have a go and a bit of fun. On my walk home from the nursery Matylda have to jump and splash in every, even the tinniest bit of water she sees. I found it quite funny and inspiring. I still can clearly remember myself digging out dirt and making water castles out of the mud. The best play ever, especially if you have some stones around as well. As a result of our latest walk I did a sketch. I still need to work on it and add some dynamic but at first it was this multitude of colors reflecting in that puddle and surrounding that inspired me.

Liliana 04/12

I have to say I am blessed with my family. I am a proud mum to three wonderful spirits, Liliana seems to be so delicate and sensitive, always surprises me with her mature thoughts and carefulness. She loves nature and it gives me a great joy watching her filling up the space with beautiful things she creates around her.

on my table...spring

I have a little illustration (or quite a few) in mind for a while now... I just found out that it is fairly easy to create and idea but to execute it up to ones is a completely different story. I made a watercolor sketch and it turned out I really need to work on my color mixing and gaining my confidence back. It is not a surprise for me (being away from a medium for so long always put some rust on the skills) but in the same time I feel really intimidated by it.

                                                           "(...) You have to work as hard to protect your skill 
                                                                   as you did to develop them(...)"
                                                                                               - Twyla Tharp

Lesson learned the hard way...The most important for me now is that I feel extreme joy and fullness every time I manage to paint in the evening. In that little studio of mine, no matter how tired I am and despite my failures I feel on "just the right spot" and in "just the right time" and that is happiness for me. Being aware of the long journey in front of me, not knowing where my ideas and creative problems will lead me in the end, makes me feel a bit worry and exited at the same time. I hope it will be interesting enough for you to come along and hang around for a while with me here.

Children are the best at the art of exploring present. Somehow, when we get older, we tend to forget how to do this...
