"Looking at my life 
I see that only Love 
Has been my soul’s companion 
From deep inside 
My soul cries out: 
Do not wait, surrender 
For the sake of Love."
 - Rumi

In context, quote of the moment:

"You are my imagination come to life."

Thank you Marcella Andre from Antigua!

I'm from Antigua (108 sq miles island in the Caribbean) and we have a historical place called Wallings Dam where people visit for hikes, barbecues, all sorts of things - it's where I got engaged and there is this tree that I just LOVE there. Its a big old mahogany tree. I swear everytime I visit I hug it and it gives me life, and messages, and memories. 
- Marcella Andre

Kiss Me!

"Tree of Love"
It grows and grows
It is drawn and redrawn
because it loves and loves.
~ Andrea Currie, Tree Artist

When I draw I am in a state of flow. When I am in my practice of creating I am mediating, channeling and releasing. I contribute my methods and techniques to be my main source of healing and growth as I am always listening to podcasts, lectures and/or music while my pen dots or ‘kisses’ the page. 
My trees are like kisses and there is a warm remembrance attached to every line, dot and shade; every thought, action and connection is expressed in my metaphor for love. 
For those of you who have received a little tree from me over the years, can you please do me the honour of sending me a photo of the tree I gave you and where you are living now. 
I am putting forests on walls all over the world and I need your help to document these trees of love.
Please lick the link below to see your fellow tree kisses from all over the world. 

Thank you for sharing, listening and connecting - you are ALL so beautiful. 
~a.

Moving is fun

Finding notes to myself
directs dust bunnies to the corners of my life 
where I tucked 
names and places
under post it notes 
on top of the pile of paid bills.

Exciting adventure this week...

I have the opportunity and pleasure of going to the Dominican Republic this week to meet 400 fellow creative, intelligent and inspiring "Afesters."  
http://www.awesomenessfest.com/

I can only imagine the incredible adventure that awaits.  

In the meantime, getting psyched  making lists for my intentions for the trip as well as the kind of people I'd like to connect with, I'm organizing my portfolio.

I'm looking for professional growth, creative collaborations and inspiring commissions.

Art is style, story and voice.  If you open your eyes on the inside, take a chance on the sound your heart makes when you connect with your soul, then you will know what is next.

We are all artists. Be inspired to create.
