I actually started this illustration back in May but I was too busy to finish and post it. Now I finally had time to do so and I absolutely love how it turned out with the colorful galaxy hair. Somehow at the moment I love to play with digital mediums and also combine vector illustrations […]
Today I have a little flashback to July 2022 when the James Webb space telescope showed the first photos of Stephan’s Quintett – five galaxies in the constellation of pegasus. I used yellow hexagon squares for the background in reference to the mirror construction which was quite some fun 😄Also used some of the cute […]
So often we get lost in our thoughts and emotions and forget that they are just a product of our conditioning. Things we learned since earliest childhood from our caregivers and our society. And often we think this is who we are. What defines us. But they are just passing guests like clouds in the […]
Sometimes people overstep our boundaries. It is up to us, to remind us what we deserve and take appropriate action. And that can sometimes mean letting go of those people. Even if it’s hard.

This month I haven’t had much time to create. There was too much going on in my life and lately it took a toll on me so I need to take a step back and take care of myself. Still I wanted to do my habit tracker (since I use it for myself anyways 🤪) and decided to do one inspired by lush summer nights with fireflies dancing in the grass. I played a bit around with digital art and created a midsummer night scene. This time there are also matching journaling cards included.
After my last abstract I wanted to try it out with my usual color palette and chose a photo of the milky way as reference. I admit, that kind of kept me from being open because I somehow tried to make it look like the milky way. At one point I tried to break free from it, which resulted in a rather chaotic painting.
Some days ago I took a class from Denise Love about abstract painting and color blocking. I decided to go for the colors she used in her class and mixed similar colors with my acrylic paints (although I somehow forgot to mix the yellow ochre, oops). Then I just went for it and played around with large brushes, my palette knife and a scraper. And I have to admit, that I really like the result.
