I recently made a series of paintings of butterflies that caught my interest. They are part of the things that have kept my mind (and soul) busy. I have always been fascinated by the lightness and freedom of butterflies. They are so lightweight and yet very beautiful.
I enjoyed highlighting the differences that existed in their patterns. I also made Butterfly cards which are good unique gifts to give a loved one this valentine.
As time goes on I would be adding more of the butterflies here. Currently I am offering free shipping on all the items in my Etsy Shop there you would find different types of paintings made with different media and different sizes.
All the best.
have been experimenting with making ACEO art with plastic beads. This is one of the results and there are many more to come. I love diversity. It gives me some form of joy when I make something different each time. It makes me want to go back again and again to my easel. It increases my appetitie for creating.Read More

This is from one of the several pictures I took while on a trip to Shakawe, a town near the border between Botswana and Namibia.
There were children fishing in the small pond but I left them out in this painting. Will put them in the bigger one I intend to do someday.
What caught my attention were the reflections the vegetation at the side of the pool made in the still water. I don't know why I am always fascinated by reflections seen in water.
They almost always look very surreal and still. Qualities I long to imbibe.
Slowly getting into a perfect rhythm. Only wish I could post more often. I will get there somehow and someday.
So much has been happening and I don't know where to start. More of my paintings were featured in several Etsy treasuries by some wonderful artists on Etsy. Still looking to make sales though. I know it'll take time and I'm being patient.
Things have been a bit slow with my blog and the number of times I post has reduced drastically...not that I've ran out of steam or content but just finding the time to post has been very difficult lately. I am pretty sure that I'll soon find my rhythm again.
I recently joined the Etsy Artists of Color (EAOC) street team and I must say it's really a great place to be. Still trying to find my footing but I know I'm going to enjoy being there.
There are lots of ways of getting in touch and connecting with fellow like minded artists and creative people. It's always pleasing to know there are many creative people around.
A place where you are one with nature and get very minimal human contact. I love my walks because I hardly ever bump into anyone I do not want to bump into (sometimes I don't bump into anyone at all!!!). In that way I enjoy a lot of solitude and a quiet time for meditation.Read More
