Feeling Good is Back!

"When you allow yourself to create, you co-create with love. Creating is the freeing and uplifting voice within us." ~ Andrea Currie

“Feel Good One Ofs” are one-of-a-kind, not copied or duplicated, original and unframed mini fine art drawings. Each unique illustration is stamped, signed and dated on the back. Recycling all types of paper from around my studio and travels – watercolour, cotton, linen, journal paper, old artwork labels, etc. –  I combines feel good inspirational words and drawings with my creative iconic tree-loving style.

Are you having an affair?

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." Robert Louis StevensonTravels with a Donkey in the Cevennes

When I draw I am in a state of flow. When I am in my practice of creating I am mediating, channeling and releasing. In this space, my main source of healing is growing, and in these lines and dots there are whispers of Truth.

Who is your doppelgänger?

"A great man can't always change his mind."
- Dr. Jekyll, Mr Hyde, 1941


Who is your doppelgänger? 
In fiction and folklore, a doppelgänger, doppelgaenger or doppelganger literally "double goer" is a look-alike or double of a living person who is sometimes portrayed as a harbinger of bad luck. (Click the link above to read the read the rest of this quote.)

What does your alter ego look like? How do you explore the caverns of your imagination? How do you respond to the negative emotions or experiences that can infiltrate your day? What is your emotional release

Be creative when the "other you" may peer from beneath the surface of your calm and collected self. Respond, don't react. Find a medium for creative expression. Paint, write, dance, run, sculpt, sing... The world is a stage and you are the star ~a.

Your presence is required

"Fame or integrity: which is more important? Money or happiness: which is more valuable? Success or failure: which is more destructive? If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you."
- Lao-tzu

For My Mother;


To me, every hour of the light and dark is a
         miracle,
Every inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is
         spread with the same,
Every cubic foot of the interior swarms with the
         same;
Every spear of grass—the frames, limbs, organs,
         of men and women, and all that concerns
         them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.
To me the sea is a continual miracle,
The fishes that swim—the rocks—the motion
         of the waves—the ships, with men in them
         —what stranger miracles are there?
