As you may have noticed I’ve been working on a new series of paintings lately. I’ve moved away slightly from my usual style of scribbly drawings to this lovely hand painted look, and I’ve been SUPER excited to tell you more about the project!
So, what has inspired all of this?
Well I’ve always enjoyed drawing subject matter and scenes that are bright and happy, and light up a room. Seeing the positives in life has always been important to me, and I’ve wanted my artworks to express that positivity. Then, last year I ran into some pretty big problems with my health. I’d just gotten married and trying to balance my treatments in hospital, seeing specialists, and running my own business was quite a challenge! But I’m happy to say that I never let it hold me back or stop me from doing what I love. I had a lot of rough days and it’s been quite a journey, but I’ve stuck it out. And although I’m still on the road to recovery, I wanted to do something to celebrate how far I’d come – and to encourage anyone else who finds themselves in a similar situation!
So I decided to paint inspiring quotes and happy thoughts! Some of these were inspired by my husband and friends, and what they’ve done for me. Some of them are simply inspiring quotes that I’ve come across. Either way, I hope that they brighten your day and your home and help you remember something TRUE 🙂 These original paintings and artworks can be found in my Etsy store here.
