Inspired by the Rowan Tree

The Rowan tree is a real witches tree. The Rowan tree has long been known for being a magickal tree. It’s has an important role in many mythology and folklore stories.

The Rowan tree is a great protector, it protects against bad luck & evil. It has been used for many years to make walking sticks and magician's staves, as well as Druid staffs and wands.  Even today is is still one of the most sought after woods for wands and amulets. It is believed to help psychic abilities and connections.  If you look at the berries when you remove them from the stick you will notice the pentacle symbol where they were attached.

Technically we don’t have a Rowan tree in our garden, but our neighbours do. It’s in their front yard and most branches overlap to our side. I don’t mind at all, I think it’s a wonderful tree. It’s not a very big one, but it is absolutely a pretty one. It’s also very handy because I have Rowan berries and leaves within reach.

I found solutions for existing problems and I found new problems challenges to take care of. There were awesome moments and not so awesome moments. From happily working on orders to feeling frustrated about situations and problems that found me along the way. 2017 was a eventful year.

Inktober 2016 was awesome!

This year I participated for the second time with Inktober. Every day of October I made an illustration with ink. It is an awesome way to learn and to become better as an atist.

I love to see how big Inktober has become. It is a worldwide event and it really takes over Instagram, Facebook and other social media. It’s fun to watch en see what others make.Lees verder/continue reading

Clay experiments

A few days ago I wrote on Instagram that I like clay. And that is true. I love clay as a material. When you want to make something with clay, you are completely free in what you want to make. It is different than drawing, but it has similarities to. Wherever you have a piece of paper or a piece of clay, you are free to make whatever you like :).Lees verder/continue reading
