As a collector of magazine clippings I am prone to collaging surfaces, such as my sketchbook. Looking at layers of inspiration makes me want to get busy drawing and painting!

Queen Victoria was one incredible lady. Aside from ruling a country for nearly 64 years, she was a mother of 9, a visual artist, and a prolific journal writer. Her passionate, determined nature is clear in reading her diaries. I've been loving the series Victoria, which brings aspects of her younger life to light...plus the costumes and sets are stunning and lavishly inspiring. Happy Victoria Day!

I found this vintage embroidered linen canvas at Value Village and love its textures and cheery colours!
Look at those little pink tulips!

1930s Felt Brooch
This is my great-grandma's floral brooch from the 1930s. It reminds me of Vogue covers of that decade.
