Footprints in the Sand

A lady approached me to create one of my 20by20 canvases, using warm colours and the popular “Footprints in the Sand” story as inspiration.
(Go HERE for a full account.)

While I prefer to work without boundaries, I really do love to step inside a customer’s heart and soul and bring that intention to life. This lady is very religious and caring and lovely and delightful.

After I finished the background, I sat for quite a while with the quote and scribed maybe a dozen sentiments. I needed to think about what that quote meant to her, how it has helped her in difficult times and why she holds that story close to her heart at all times.





And I think I chose the right one because she absolutely loved it.



Thank you Kerry for allowing me to create this beautiful piece for you and trusting me with your story.

“Take Care of Yourself” Guest Designer for Artified

When opportunity knocks, sometimes you just have to put everything else aside and answer the goddam door!

So I answered the call from Melissa at Artified to be her Guest Designer for this gorgeously shimmery Mixed Media Kit.

This is the first Art Journal page I’ve created using papers from the current kit, but the gelatos are from the previous kit. If you don’t have gelatos (available in her store, you can substitute with watercolours or gouache or glaze or watered down acrylic paint.

I have a couple more pages to share next week, so make sure you stay in touch.
To purchase this kit, go to and tell Mel I sent you.

I hope you enjoy the video!!
If you like it, please share it and let me in on the love 😉
