Painting No.4 - Night Bloom 20"x16", watercolour on watercolour board, 2012 From sea to night, this week's painting 'Night Bloom' was inspired by a flowering garden with buds opening to moonlight and velvet sky. Night has its own magic, a sumptuous mystery and light especially when the moon is shining.... Continue reading

Painting No.3 - Heart Of Pearl 20"x16", watercolour on watercolour board, 2012 A slight digression in my new series of paintings today. 'Heart Of Pearl' was created on one panel and is displayed as one piece instead of two like 'River' and 'Ocean Flower'. These days I feel very drawn... Continue reading

Painting No.2 - Ocean Flower 2 panels each 20"x16", watercolour on watercolour board, 2012 'Ocean Flower' is the second painting in my Deva series. I started the painting with a soft knowing of the colours I wanted to use in the composition and how I wanted the colours to be... Continue reading
Painting No.1 - River 2 panels each 20"x16", watercolour on watercolour board, 2012 'River' is the first pair of paintings in my new Deva series. Each expresses the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energy of an element of nature. I find my vision and inner landscape sewing together my deep... Continue reading
Today brings new cycles - a new moon, a new Chinese lunar year. For some reason it feels like the new year started today and not a few weeks ago. I completed a new painting and this morning I woke up, very excited to photograph it for the website and... Continue reading

I've been exploring this piece over the last few days - gently, slowly, one brush stroke at a time. Sometimes things need to come to life that way. One little blossoming after another. I'm not particularly one for New Year's resolutions, I'd rather have ideas of essences I want to... Continue reading

I'm so excited to start painting after all the rest and revelry of the holidays. There's something beautiful about a new year, new beginnings and the hope and promise of wonderful things to come. So many pictures are coming forward within me, waiting to be painted and over the last... Continue reading
Beautiful list Tracy, I find I lose the wind with resolutions too and setting the intention to come from Love, the heart and joy allows things to flow and unfold exactly as I need them to.

Tracy, just about ready to send out this month's issue. Your altar made my heart swell with peace and beauty. So, so beautiful. I'm always in awe of how you create these focus spaces - the colours and symbols and arrangement. Love To You this weekend and I'm looking forward to seeing the beautiful art that flows through you.

As visionary creators we see beyond, around and within. We look deeper, feel deeper and sometimes this might be overwhelming when what we feel, see and experience is harsh or without seeming beauty. In my life right now I'm experiencing the profound act of opening all my senses to the... Continue reading

"Trinity (The Dawson Family)", watercolour on watercolour board 20" x 16", 2011 I created this smaller commissioned piece for this Goddess and her beautiful family over the last few weeks. It gave me the perfect reason to get some painting done in addition to the FlowerFlame series. I like to... Continue reading

Creating art is an act of Love and expression of the Divine Love flowing through our Hearts and our connection to it. Shifting to the Heart involves peeling away those things that shut us down so that our true embodiment can shine through. When we're in this flow, Divine inspiration... Continue reading
What better way to explore Illumined Creation™ and spiritual art than with creating more art itself?! More fun, more joy - you know how we like that sort of thing around here. As I explore my own path as an artist and what it means to create art as an... Continue reading
Tracy, just wanted to send some loving comfort to you and your husband during this time of loss. Your knit projects look just beautiful - especially when modelled outside in nature:)

The world turns a little differently for us Creative Hearts. Everything is more colourful, resplendent and beautifully intense. We see, feel and sense it all. We are completely switched on and alive! So what happens when we’re not feeling that? What happens when something throws us off course, we feel... Continue reading

This is literally what's happening in my studio right now, in this very moment: clicking away on the computer, finishing touches for A Creative Faerie Year, illustrations for the aforementioned, working on a commission and being studiously observed by Ms. Emmie. I'm just so excited to unveil A Creative Faerie... Continue reading

Dear Beautiful You, Last night I went to bed thinking about you and me and our journey as artists. It seems as if it was just yesterday, that magical day when I first wrote in my journal: 'I want to be free to be, to paint, to sing, to dance,... Continue reading

Earlier this week I shared some thoughts on the process of Initiations and to complete the thread - some insight into what happens after our Initiation. I want to make some points first though: Initiation cave is a place of transition not somewhere to stay. We're not meant to revel... Continue reading

At 1a.m. I decide it's time to go to bed. I take a nice warm shower and wonder around straightening things when - wait - what's that on my table! Open sketchbook page, paint pan awaiting wet brush. . . can't let that go to waste now can I? (this... Continue reading
