Drawing with a line of wool has become a way to balance my thoughts. It is the simple daily acts that help us go forward in times of stress. What brings you to a moment that makes you smile?

Skill #2 in the path to resilience has been posted. As I mentioned it before one of my day jobs is the coordinator for the Hear/d Art residency at AUArtsSA . I love working with university students create art work that explores their mental health and their path to resilience. I love mentoring emerging artists to thrive in their art practice not just mere survive. It is work that fills me to the rim and I will always work towards empowering of others . I have had the privilege of given this opportunity of@making a difference and I take that seriously . My own art and my own journey have given me a skill set that I hope is of serve to other artists and people in general. Have a listen to the self talk video and share your thoughts and observations.

After our production of Between Us, we thought it was only fitting to introduce you to the outstanding work sagessecalgary does in our community.

I made this style of #postcard eons ago. I was playing around with colour and pattern then threw the text on as an afterthought.
I struggle with quotes and phrases, but I like ambiguous word pairings that can have multiple meanings. I thought the idea of having this written on a postcard was particularly entertaining. Now it seems painfully appropriate.
