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 am also working on a series of paintings (acrylic on canvas) under the overall title ‘From the Old to the New Paradigm’ (taking me longer than anticipated) – a portrayal of the transitional and transformational times we are living in using images to capture old paradigm realities as well as new ones on a social, emotional, psychological, and spiritual level.
My inner balance is maintained by means of yoga, meditation, contemplation and a daily dose of laughter (very important ingredient!).
…dedicating my entire time to art, I used to be a full-fledged IT professional (webmaster, web designer, system engineer and requirements engineer) and an editor of an internal IT magazine for an international corporation.
But apart from my professional and academic background, I’ve always been simultaneously engaged in creative pursuits.
Doing ‘arty farty’ stuff always came naturally to me and always made me happy – still does.
It’s high time now
to swish, splash, write, draw, paint and illustrate away,
because remember to do what you love,
every single day!
