Welcome and thank you for visiting my blog Babybluesnowflake!
Originally, I initiated this blog space to undo my writer’s block and my resulting fear of the blank page.
However, as it turns out, I ended up using it for my creative recovery and exploration not only by means of words but in particular by means of images.
A huge big thank you to my followers and visitors for liking, commenting on and sharing the contents of this blog!
You are the light that shines on my artwork. Without you, my art is like the moon on a new moon night: cast in darkness.
As for me
I am an artist, coach and an aspiring writer and illustrator of picture books with a bachelor’s degree in media and communications, sociology.
Besides participating in the awesome Friday night colour fest #colour_collective on Twitter,
I’ve written a children’s picture book titled ‘Miah and the Moon’ and am working on the storyboard, dummy book, and illustrations. Synopsis: Miah is a Moonchild on her first mission. She must ensure the happiness of all the moons in the Milky Way galaxy. All seems well until Miah discovers that compared to the Sun Earth’s Moon feels insignificant.
My inner balance is maintained by means of yoga, meditation, contemplation and a daily dose of laughter (very important happiness ingredient!).
…dedicating my entire time to art, I used to be a full-fledged IT professional (webmaster, web designer, system engineer and IT business analyst and requirements engineer) and also worked as an editor for an internal IT magazine, internal comms and various finance publications for international corporations. Still today, all things technological make my eyes twinkle. Once a geek always a geek?
But apart from my professional and academic background, I’ve always been simultaneously engaged in creative pursuits like singing, dancing, acting, painting, illustrating and writing.
No matter how analytical and technical I can get, I’m a creative. Doing ‘arty farty’ stuff comes naturally to me and makes me happy.
It’s high time now
to swish, splash, write, draw, paint and illustrate away,
because remember to do what you love,
every single day!
