“I tried and failed. I tried again and again and succeeded.”
Gail Borden

my art and me, me and my art. i’ve tried many media and styles over the years. sketch, canvas, collage, water color, acrylics … but what i really like is messy art. to give permission to the colors and pieces of paper to talk by themselves.

“You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.”
Margaret Thatcher

my messy pages are like therapy, i let my feelings pour on them. most of them i keep to myself, but a few i post on IG, i share with my friends in there hoping to inspire them. once a posted a collage and tagged art page. someone left a comment saying my page wasn’t an art! sadness took over me and i didn’t post for a while.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

many thoughts later, i understood the problem wasn’t on my page or with myself, but with the person that commented. up and down, resiliency, and time to take the stand and enjoy my art, messy art!

    1. Hi Kirstin, a keyboard is indeed powerful, full of goodness or badness, it depends on the fingers touching it. I got so upset by that comment for a few day. Finally I let it go, and focus on the nice comments and what I really think about my art. We can’t make everybody happy, so at least let’s make ourselves happy! 🙂


    1. hi Lois, i’m so happy to know you feel like this. yes, it is my intention when i made my pages, depending on our moment we find a different message looking at it, secret messages! have a lovely Sunday my friend!
