Hello my dears! I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend.
Here is a new design I created using another one of my photos from my trip to Mexico.
Using this pretty one I took of the sunset one evening on the beach, I cropped it and combined it with one of my hand drawn mandala designs layered over top.
I really like the colours of the photograph and I tried to make the mandala look somewhat tropical with the patterns.
I feel like these products would look good in a beach house or somewhere like that. What do you guys think? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
My old Rose Gold Mandala is one of the most popular designs in my shop, so I decided to make a New Rose Gold Mandala for 2017!
This design was originally drawn by hand and then scanned and coloured in digitally.
Below is a sample of how it looks on some of the products:
Anyways, let me know what you guys think about this new mandala design by leaving a comment below! I hope it will wind up being as popular as the old one.
Have a great week everyone!
While this is generally an art blog, those of you who have followed me for a while know that I also occasionally like to share my travel photos with you guys!
Travel and photography are actually related to my art practice because I often use the photos to create new designs either directly or indirectly, and travel in general tends to inspire me creatively.
Below is an example of a product I created using a photo from this latest trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!
And yes, I did go to Cabo last year as well but we stayed in San Jose del Cabo, and this time we stayed much closer to actual Cabo San Lucas at the Hotel Riu Palace. (Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I both suffered from food poisoning on this trip, from the hotel buffet, so while the hotel itself is beautiful I can’t recommend it based on that experience.)
Cabo is a fairly short and direct flight from Vancouver, and generally cheaper for me compared to other beach locations, so it’s kind of a no-brainer. I will definitely be back to Cabo but will find somewhere else to stay next time.
Anyways, here are a few highlights from the trip:
We went out bar hopping one night and hit up Cabo Wabo, El Squid Roe, another random bar and La Vaquita (a cow themed night club!). It was super fun, I definitely recommend it if you’re there. It is very easy to just walk between the different bars/clubs and quite an experience.
So, I hope you guys have enjoyed seeing these photos from my latest adventure, please let me know what you think about them and the products I made by leaving a comment below!
Also, if you would like to know anything about Cabo San Lucas, or the hotel I stayed at or whatever, feel free to ask me and I’ll do my best to help!
Today I am sharing a new version of this Zen Doodle design I drew a while ago. I decided to see how it would look in this blue and gold colour combination. I think it turned out pretty nice! What do you guys think?
Also, I have been working on some new mandala drawings! Here is a little sneak peek at those:
Make sure you are following my blog so you can see what I create with the new mandalas!
Well that’s all I have for you guys today, let me know what you think about this design by leaving a comment below!
I hope you all have a great week.
2 Gold inspired designs are available in my stores now!
These are recolours of previously made designs. Both were originally hand drawn and then scanned and digitally coloured and arranged.

Sorry for the briefness today, life has been a lil hectic lately.
