It’s been hard work and I’ve felt like pulling my hair out at times but having over 20 puppies to care for for the first 6 weeks of their lives has been one of the best experiences of my life. This was what my childhood dreams were made of them and I love these chocolate velvet bundles and I don’t want them to leave ❤️ #choclabpuppies #chocolatelab #chocolatelab #lizlanestudio #puppies #labradorpuppies #mylife #myheart #lifeispoetry #realloce
Practice continues in Labrador Lounge, but lucky for Liz the residents aren’t paying any attention so they don’t notice all her mistakes as she tries to learn a new song 😳😂 #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #choclabpuppies #chocolatelab #ukulele #ukulelegirl #ukulelecover #poetlife #lifeispoetry
So now I must don hardware like I’m spray painting or fumigating the house when I sleep but it’s actually to treat my severe sleep apnea in which I stop breathing in my sleep an average of 35 times an hour 😳 #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #sleep #sleepapnea #myworld
Laylee is extra clingy at the moment, I think she is really missing Uki too 😢🦋 #myworld #myheart #gingercat #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #poetlife #lifeispoetry
Got my Goth White foundation today so I had a little play with it 💜 #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lifeispoetry #goth #gothwhite
My initials for my first and two middle names spell ELM, I love elm trees, trees are a meaningful symbol for me and Sylvia is my poetic icon 💜 #sylviaplath #confessionalpoet #poetlife #lifeispoetry #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #adelaideartist #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #elmtree #poeticicon
Some days I need to remember that I am Good Enough as well as not “Too Much” and some days I need to remind myself on repeat 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #adelaideartist #poetlife #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #lifeispoetry #goodenough #mentalhealth
An illustration sketched for a poem I’d written and now I am planning to use the poem and this illustration to create a digital narrative. Combining art forms is one of my favourite things 💜 #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #adelaideartist #lifeispoetry #poetlife #sketch #createeveryday
Sketches for a tattoo I want to get on my thigh, a pinup like alter ego, a reminder of the woman I aspire to be, confident, comfortable in my own skin, courageous and compassionate 💜 #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #poetlife #pinuptattoo
Just when I think I’ve taken the cutest photos possible they pull this pose out 😍#chocolatelab #larbradorpuppies #myworld #myheart #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #choclabpuppies
I went at my hair like Edward Scissor hands goes at topiary. I diy cut and coloured it attempting an asymmetrical inverted bob, it looks ok in its natural tousled state but it will be interesting to see how it looks when I straighten it 😳 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression #diyhaircut #girlshaircut #lifeispoetry
Emergency All around is Constant chatter and constant natter We sit in silence In Gran’s stark cubicle And wait Watching the women in their teal pyjamas And running shoes And the men in tailored slacks and shiny black lace ups Gran, with her eye swollen like a ripened plum Beep beep beep Beats per minute My grans heart beats Irregular My grans heart beats too much We watch the clock Tick tick tick The nurse checks grans stats But her heart rate can’t be caught The heating is cranked To keep the elderly warm With their Paper thin skin. I have spent too many hours in hospital rooms this year Staring the inevitable in the eye And watching my favourites Succumb to the way of all things 🦋 #poetry #poetlife #lifeispoetry #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression
I wrote this poem a few years ago when my gran was admitted into hospital after breaking her wrist. Tonight Margit, my gran has been admitted into hospital again for some tests due to a swollen eye and irregular heart beats. For Margit with all my love 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression #familyalways #poetlife #lifeispoetry #iamnotanisland
So, I’ve just finished writing/constructing my multimedia essay for Digital Storytelling and a video abstract had to be embedded at the start. It took me way too many tales to try and get it right but here is one of the early ones before I realised the puppies were making way too much noise 😏 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #sounddesign #digitalstorytelling #sonicarts #mediastudent #multimediaessay #poetlife #lifeispoetry #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression
Although it is a question we should be asking one another everyday, today is the day we are reminded. As someone who lives with a chronic mental health condition and as someone who has stood too close to the edge and has even attempted to jump off, just the simple act of being asked ‘R U OK?’ can be enough to break the spell. That seemingly small acknowledgment can be a reminder that we are not alone and when we are reminded we are not alone we are reminded we have people in our lives that we care about and we don’t want to leave behind. This is more than a day it is a reminder to keep connecting with the people we love for the next year and beyond. R U OK? 💜 #ruok #ruokday #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #mentalhealth #suicideawareness #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression #poetlife #lifeispoetry #iamnotanisland #confessionalpoet #poetry
Study is not going smoothly atm, found out one on my major assignments is due on Friday, when I thought it was due on the 28th, have done nothing and now my internet seems to have gone M.I.A and I won’t even mention the level of distraction the 22 puppies in my lounge room are causing 😳 #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #ukulele #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #study #studentlife
Some old wounds that I thought had healed have been opened up over the last couple of days and with it the realisation that someone who had once been very close to me was actually responsible for inflicting the cuts. This poem contains opinions I was subjected to and although I am not young any more and neither are my children apparently some of these opinions are still firmly held onto 😕 #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #poetlife #iamnotanisland #lifeispoetry #poetry #confessionalpoet
This is a dangerous device for those who have deadlines or who need to avoid time wasting and procrastinating 😱💜 #choclabpuppy #choclatelab #chocolatelabradorpuppy #labrador #labpuppy #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression
One of my babies, babies 😍 Not a bad way to spend a Saturday night, a night in having tiny Labrador cuddles! #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #labradorpuppy #choclab #chocolatelabradorpuppy #choclabpup #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression
I used to have this attitude when ever I was confronted with something that made me feel anxious or uncomfortable, I’d tell myself “you’ve just got to get through” now anxiety and feeling uncomfortable are very present emotional states for me , so I realised one day I was doing myself a disservice by trying to just grin and bare a lot of experiences. I decided to try to change my attitude and be present and enjoy as much of it as I could, try to remember why I’ve put myself in that position and the things I like about it. So Yesterday at #LoveLocalFleurieu that is what I tried to do 💜 #lizlanestudio @project_work_life @oliverstaranga #takethechance #adelaideartist #expressyourself #ukulele #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart
And then there was the time that I had an art exhibition with four generations of related women 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #familyways #generationsofcreation #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #selfexpression
Been going through old stuff looking for memories for my Love Local Fleurieu presentation I’ve come across some great old photos, this is one from Art School during the final year 💜 #adelaideartist #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart
Had my first go in the Spatial Studio at uni tonight. I had to get things up and running, isolate the sound and make sure I can route it to the appropriate speaker and make some terrible sounds with nothing but a sine tone 🙉 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #expressyourself #ukulele #ukulelegirl #sonicarts #selfexpression #poetlife #lifeispoetry
Saturday morning and I’m seriously outnumbered by the four leggeds 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #adelaideartist #labradors #chocolatelabs #gingercat #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry
Two and a half years apart but no difference, one is a filter and one is makeup, but my open and fragile artist heart always beats the same 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #adelaideartist #create #createeveryday #fragileheart #artistheart
I’ve never been loved by a cat the way I am loved by this cat, Uki 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #uki #ukulele #ukulelegirl #ukulelecat #reallove #persiancat #lizlanestudio
Rarely am I home alone on a Saturday, so I thought I’d make the most of it and have a play on my electric uke through the amp. And in honour of last night a little bit of Courtney Barnett, I know I’ve done a ‘Depreston’ video before but it’s the only one I know off by heart on the ukulele 💜 #my world #myheart #makemusic #makeart #courtneybarnett #adelaideartist #ukulelegirl #ukulelemovement #ukulelecover #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry
It’s been six years, but I still miss this legend of a dog! Max you were my guardian angel 💜 #adventuresofmax #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #adelaideartist #create #createeveryday #missyou #legenddog #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #poetlife
Today’s creative activity is field recording for my first assignment for Sonic Arts. I am really loving this subject and learning as much as well! #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #sonicarts #create #creativity #adelaideartist #lifeispoetry #beyou #lizlanestudio
My baby came into me today after school and told me she wanted to learn a song on the ukulele so she could perform it at school with a friend, so that’s what we did. I had never even heard the song and V hasn’t picked up the uke in a while. Here is a snippet, it’s very rough but it’s pretty cute 💕 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #ukulele #ukulelegirl #create #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #kalaukulele
Haven’t done one for a while and I can’t remember which songs I have and have not posted, but it shouldn’t matter. Excuse my rough vocals the cough has done a number on my voice but Kurt probably wouldn’t mind the gravel! #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #adelaideartist #ukulelegirl #kalaukulele #create #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #
So I hit the bottom of the rabbit hole yesterday. Luckily it was a very brief visit. After wading through confusion and doubt for a while I finally landed at the bottom and it was just me and my inner critic down there. What am I doing with my life? What is the point of any of it? Why don’t I just give up? But that’s no fun, so I got up dusted myself off and started my climb back up to land of the living 💜 #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #expressyourself #lizlanestudio #beyou #create #createeveryday #lifeispoetry #poetlife
Note to self... I am not too much ... but I am enough 💜 #beyou #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #poetlife #quote #wisewords

The fox, another one from the imaginary friends series. The insight fox offers is sometimes we can benefit from fading into the background and just observing as well as we there is much to be learnt from being one with our environment 📗 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #beyou #lifeispoetry #adelaideartist #create #createeveryday #creativitychallenge #expressyourself #selfexpression
I’ve been so sick all week and not sleeping properly, so I decided to get my creativity on and make myself an essential oil necklace. Raw wooden beads soaked in a blend of eucalyptus, tea tree and Lemon oil in a carrier oil and some fluorite and moss agate beads. #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lifeispoetry #adelaideartist #beyou #lizlanestudio #poetlife #create #createeveryday #expressyourself

Uki is on the roster this afternoon, unfortunately she doesn’t seem to understand that putting her fluffy rump in my face doesn’t help my congestion or cough 🤒😂 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #persiancat #catlove #beyou #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #poetlife #adelaideartist
Not much creativity happening at the moment, I’ve been sick in bed all day with the cats tag teaming watching over me 💜 #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #poetlife #create

This is The Outcast and drawing this character was more confronting than I expected. #createeveryday #creativitychallenge #beyou #create #adelaideartist #draw #expressyourself #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart
Not much focused creativity going on with me the last few days. Went on a road trip to the Riverland with my girls for the funeral of someone very dear to us 💜#happysad #roadtrip #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #poetlife #adelaideartist

Day 4 of the imaginary friend and the insight they offer creativity challenge set by @kerrysmallofferings . This is the obsessed and the insight he/she offers is that obsessing over things and trying to control them just robs you of enjoyment. #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #create #createeveryday #creativitychallenge #adelaideartist #draw #sketch #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #imaginaryfriend #poetlife
Working through some big emotions and I’ve been left home alone for the week, so what is a girl to do? Do my own take on the Risky Business Dance Scene 😱 #adelaideartist #create #createeveryday #creativity #beyou #expressyourself #lizlanestudio #lifeispoetry #nirvana #selfexpression #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart
Day 3 of the creativity challenge given by @kerrysmallofferings. This imaginary friend is the people pleaser and the insight she offers trying to please other people for their love and acceptance is futile and comes at the great cost of self care 💙#creativity #creativitychallenge #create #adelaideartist #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart #poetlife #lifeispoetry #expressyourself #selfexpression #artismymedicine #lizlanestudio
Second day of @kerrysmallofferings creativity challenge. This is my imaginary friend Slatterbug and the insight she offers me is that if we let fear rule we will end up spending our life under a rock and we miss out on the sunshine! #createeveryday #create #creativitychallenge #adelaideartist #beyou #imaginaryfriend #draw #lizlanestudio #expressyourself #myworld #myheart #makemusic #makeart
