I have been playing with my time creating Luli, nothing serious as i don’t consider myself to be a professional illustrator! Simply just drawing an imperfect, fun loving girl wanting to explore the world!

Hope

“Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314)
BY EMILY DICKINSON
“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

Selah.. “Pause, and think …”

My instinct is to create! Though feelings try to hold me back, it is my creative instinct which does not go to sleep, it keeps tugging at my hearts desire to try again, to action, to never give up!

I feel as if I totally overworked my portrait to the point of not submitting it to the Royal Art Academy this year! But never the less it is not completely dead! The right of my painted face outshines the messed up left side of this painting still leaving me something to work with. Still this canvas has life within its painted strokes as if to say rework me, I can still be the painting you wish to see.

A bit like life in retrospect. I might not be where I want to be in some aspects of my life and with this painting, but at least I’m not where I use to be and I am grateful that I am alive to still be who I want to be and to create and paint for change!

Self portrait in progress

60x60cm oil on canvas…

Me, feeling happy after a few days of anxiety wondering where next with myself in life, as a person, an artist, a wife. Marriage is a wonderful thing but you’re partner alone cannot sustain you, its you as a whole with your own individuality, interests and dreams/ accomplishments that helps to build your life together. You can lOve only by loving yourself first.

Trust

100x70cm Oil on canvas… What started out as a commission spoke to me personally. My first seascape and painting with a palette knife, I had to trust that this painting could work and that regardless of my fears all I needed to do was research on how to paint waves, get on with it and explore my talent which I did.

More Than Just Poetry

“This book carries you through a journey of human emotion, it’s about the feelings that make us as special as we are. Our every being is surrounded by love, hate, anger, hope, faith and so many more emotions that lead us, keep us alive and universally keep us moving. The poems are based on either fragments of my life or the lives of others that I hold dear. These are real expressions of different situations that we all find ourselves in at one point or the other in our lives.”.. T.T

Relentless Joy

A4 canvas acrylic painting…

Relentless: unbending, obdurate, adamant, unyielding.. Joy..

Whilst painting this by feeling I felt like God saying though you’ve made many mistakes my heart still beats for you!

Stop trying to be perfect and just be! Relentless Joy.
