Something in me keeps saying “let loose, let loose, let loose...” ... just let go. And this is what came out. . This piece also inspired by another Bellingham artist @quinnarie 🧡 . . . #watercolor_art #abstractartists #bellinghamartist #bellinghamart #localartist #abstractart #abstractdrawing #mixedmedia #momartist #justletgo #loosepainting #watercolor_art #momoffour #twinmom #mombreak #artistoninsta #intuitiveart #intuition #arttherapy #justkeepgoing #artistherapy #feedmyspirit
I’ve been having so much fun creating this varied edition by messing around with different color arrangements! I love how luminous the gold ink is against the black paper. 🌲 These prints will be available at the Arts & Ales Holiday Market at the @aslandepot this Saturday from 2-8! If there are any leftovers I will put them up in my shop next week. • • • • • • #printmaking #linocut #reliefprint #linoprint #blockprint #printspotters #printisntdead #instaprints #process #carving #printmakersofinstagram #get_imprinted #pnwonderland #pnwcreatives #northwestartist #bellinghamart #inkonblock #buylocalart @artyinc
It’s often the little things that bring back the biggest memories. I remember having little trees just like these for the village my dad would put up every year at Christmas. He’d also hang the tie-on red velvet bows and the metallic mini presents (you know which ones, right?) on the tree. I doubt he still has any of those since his taste from young single bachelor to old married man has changed in the last 25 years. Surprisingly, the little trees, metallic packages, and velvet bows are all still sold today. I picked up the trees at work because I was continually drawn to them. Now I just have to decide where to put them! . Only 14 more days until Christmas, can you believe it?! What are some little things that remind you of Christmas? . #merrychristmas #flatlay

Only 15 days until Christmas! . This year I tried my hand at making some ornaments with my @officialcricut and I am SO excited about how they turned out! I even made extras to give away to friends and family! . The little red ornaments are from @michaelsstores. I chose these woodsy silhouettes from Cricut’s selections online to match my adventure theme. White matte permanent vinyl was used for the tiny 1.5 inch decals (I can’t get over the details there still are even as such a small size!). I pulled each decal off, applied it to the surface of the ornament, added some ribbon on the top, and I was done! The hardest part was only deciding how large I wanted to make each decal! . What crafty things do you guys do during the holidays? . #creativityfound #makersmovement #handmade #madebyhand #bellinghamartist #creatives #bham #bellinghamart #bellingham #seattlecreatives #pnw #pacficnorthwest #pacificnorthwestliving #pnwonderland #washington #thegreatpnw #stayandwander #adventure #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #getoutthere #keepitwild #liveauthentic #optoutside #cricut #michaelsmakers #cricutexploreair

(Coming tomorrow the final original paintings of 2018!) This year my body of work has taken me to new places, as I’ve explored new experiences and personal growth my art process has mirrored those changes. I’ve learned to lean into the unknown. Try new things, and trust myself during the journey. — I hope you enjoy these last 8 paintings. They are my small way of closing a chapter and welcoming what comes next. —- Tomorrow there will be 4 vintage framed FLORALS & 4 vintage framed ABSTRACT LANDSCAPES. — Thank you again for all your incredible support and for being the most incredible collectors!!
Happy Hanamus!🕎🎄🕊 Every year we enjoy the rituals of both rich traditions. Happy final night of Hannukah, to all of you angels, and my son in particular. He’s away from home & holidays this season, and we’re all homesick about that. 🕎🕊 #Hannukah #finalnight #festivaloflights #missmyson #tgforfacetime #jewinBankok #angels #angelsinacrylic

This week as been a real storm mentally but the skies are clear and the ground has been a crystal wonderland everyday. It reminds me of the magic, even in the mundane. Always grateful to be alive, serving, teaching, sharing, meeting new people and growing! . . . . . . . . . #borage #eatyourgreens #frostymornings #goldenhour #BellinghamArtist #evergreenstateofmind #omdem5mark2 #olympus #adventurevisuals #bellinghamart #wildernessculture #ournaturedays #gameoftones #pacificnorthwest #liveoutdoors #justgoshoot #aov #artofvisuals #exploreeverything #theoutbound #mindfulness #awesomedreamplaces #thatpnwlife #rei1440project #meetthemoment #moretoexplore #lifestyleoverluxury #beherenow #meditatedaily #om
“Uncontrollable Divide” | acrylic on paper | 9”x12” | 2018
12/6/18: I wasn’t feeling very well today so I decided to doodle a fun piece that has been rattling around in my brain ever since I chatted with @sarahsdarkartsandcrafts about the idea of a “skunk-bat” to make myself smile. I also made him “making Christmas” Nightmare Before Christmas style 🦇🎁 I always get taken away with drawing any embellishments like twinkles- oh well, I still like how this little cutie turned out✨#dailyart #doodle #makingchristmas #bellinghamartist #nightmarebeforechristmas #instaart #bellinghamart #pnwartist #pnwart #seattleartist #seattleart #localartist #localart #illustrationartists #illustration #illustrator #childrenillustrator #inkart #artoftheday #artdaily #childrenillustration #illustrationart #artistfriends #artfriends #artistcommunity #artistlife #penart #artistsoninstagram #illustagram

I most definitely do not know a lot about the art of watercolor. I have never taken a class. I watched a video on the basics on YouTube and that was it. But I think that’s the exciting thing about art. There isn’t always a “right” way to do it. You interpret the way to do it in a way that makes sense to you. . Like when you learn to write, you’re given examples on how to hold the pencil, but ultimately, you form the habit of writing because of how comfortable it is to hold it in your hand. I’ve learned how to use the paints and the particular brushes to the means of how I understand they work and what is comfortable to my hand. So I figured I’d show the two brushes I like to use (so far) with my watercolors. @winsorandnewton Round 4 for larger aspects and Round 000 for fine details. . . . #watercolor #winsorandnewtonwatercolors #winsorandnewton #illustration #paint #creativityfound #dailydoseofpaper #makersmovement #handmade #madebyhand #bellinghamartist #watercolorpainting #creatives #bham #bellinghamart #bellingham #pnw #trees #seattlecreatives
I finally got the chance to create a project I’ve been dreaming up for a while now! I cannot believe how cute they turned out! . Although I may not get as many free chances as I’d like, I love spending time outdoors. Growing up, my dad took me on many outdoor adventures - hikes, camping, skiing, snowshoeing, you name it! I find comfort within warm sweaters, crisp air, and snow-covered trees. During the holidays, I’m always reminded of the excursions we took together, and cannot wait for the few free moments I get to spend outside this coming season. These ornaments, along with the majority of my apartment’s decor, are markers to remind me to feed into my adventure. . I put my @officialcricut to the test, and made some tiny vinyl decals to place onto these little red ornaments from @michaelsstores. More info to come over on @niccumart ! . #michaelsmakers #cricut #merrychristmas #flatlay
My, what big ears you have!
