    November downloadable calendars

    It’s been a couple of days since November started, so it’s time for me to share the last-but-one downloadable calendar of the Forest Animals series.

    New design!

    The idea to re-design my website has been on my mind for nearly a year, but 2018 has been such a challenging year both on a professional and personal level that I had had no chance to concantrate on webdesign. October has been a good month though, so I managed to spend a little time […]

  • Ginkgo leaves - watercolor tutorial

    Watercolor painting class – ginkgo leaves

    Ginkgo biloba is one of the plants with the best PR. It doesn’t only have healing powers but it’s also beautiful. Of course, the dandalion possesses these qualities too (among several other plants) and yet it was ginkgo, which became so iconic that almost anyone can recognise its leaves. The butterfly-shaped leaves seemed the perfect […]

    October downloadable calendars

    October has dawned on us with a really autumn-like, gloomy day, which I could not celebrate better than with a new dwnloadable calendar.

    5 lessons from nature for beginner and advanced creatives

    Illustration variations: Beauty and the Beast

    Here’s a question: what is the first image that pops into your head when it comes to Beauty and the Beast? Am I wrong if I say that 10 out 10 of you thought of Belle’s yellow evening frock? It is interesting to see how some stories have such iconic imagery that they practically burned […]

    September downloadable calendars

    I’m a little late, as September is already here and there has been no downloadable calendar. Sometimes I feel I say this too often, but I’ve been buried under a mounting of tasks, plus I’ve been moving house. But I’m slowly starting to see the way up, and will resurface soon, continuing to blog. Would […]

    Back to school: 3 downloadable name label stickers

    Not long ago I realised I hadn’t updated the blog’s content library in quite a while, so I thought I’d surprise you with some new downloadable goodie. September is always a time for planning and re-planning for me – and of course, a time for school. A few years ago these days I would sit […]

  • Should you go to art school? Pros and cons

    Art school: YES or NO?

    When I walked out of University with a fresh degree in my hand I promised myself that I would never ever attend art education again. Despite all analysis I will probably never find out whose fault it was that I ended up with this unfortunate conclusion, but it is more or less a fact that they […]
