Today we are doing another episode of Create with Intuition, a monthly practice where we explore intuitive and visual art prompts. This month’s theme is “Divergence,” which is the point where two things split off from one another. I find this concept fascinating because it has so many meanings in different fields of study, and […]

Today, I’m excited to be sharing a digital art process video with you, showcasing the incredible capabilities of Procreate and my custom Fiber Art brush set. I’ll demonstrate how to create beautiful artwork with neutral colors and lots of texture. My process begins with diagonal lines created using the felting brushes. From there, I add florals, pieces of cloth, stitching and embellishments to give the piece depth and interest. I hope this video will inspire you to create something today and to explore the endless possibilities of digital art!

This video was requested by Deb from the community – a wispy abstract butterfly made from digital acrylic pour painting and lined with messy black ink.

For today’s tutorial we will be making a forest out of digital alcohol ink which is very abstract and looks a bit like it might belong in a Dr. Suess book! It’s a bit silly and whimsical, and a lot of fun to make. The technique is inspired (with permission) by an artist named Bea […]

Whimsical Abstract Forest


Today we are using one of my favourite techniques for boosting creativity – completely removing color as a variable by using only one color (black in this case). This forces us to focus on other variables instead to make the art more interesting, like texture details. Painting a full moon seemed like a perfect, minimalist […]

You can do any shapes, colors, techniques, patterns etc – the possibilities are limitless! This can be really scary and sometimes result in giving up before even getting started. That is why, in this […]
