Effervesent Blue Sparks – New Art

Blue has always been one of my favorite colors. I couldn’t resist photographing these random canyon spray paint jobs. One was on an old tree trunk and the other the metal cover of the sewer system. I don’t know who painted them or why, but they sure are beautiful.

I love to use repurposed materials in my art. Zero-waste or as close to possible is my goal! I love to paint, but much prefer to salvage in my neighborhood for material and inspiration. If you make zero-waste or eco-friendly art, please comment below. If it fits with my theme, I will feature you here on my blog. 

Peace and hugs, Leah

Summer Solstice Mandala – New Art

Summer is blooming with vibrant colors; vines travel up tree trunks, flowers burst with nectar and the sun shines brighter than usual. Let’s celebrate the summer with gifts from mother nature. What better way than to make a little magic with the plants that are overflowing in our backyards, forests, valleys and canyons.

Beach Love Art

I made his heart with seaweed on a beautiful sunny day at the beach. It’s one of my favorite pieces, even though I’m not usually a fan of heart designs. I love creating art outside because it is a calming experience, akin to meditation for me. It is also non-toxic, doesn’t create waste and the supplies are free so everyone can make art.

Video Tutorial: How To Make Zero Waste Art

 I love creating art, but I don’t like all the waste that I create when I use pens and paint. Thankfully I stumbled upon a zero-waste alternative in the outdoors. Nature offers us a plethora of art supplies.
 Not only is outside art non-toxic, it is free. Anybody can create art and by capturing it with a camera, can sell prints of their art. I’m definitely not the first person to realize this, but I am grateful to have the experience of stumbling across a giant peace sign and heart that had been made of rocks and bricks, and left in the canyon by my house. Those random pieces of art inspired me and sent me on a new journey with art. 
 Here is a short video of my process.
What are you waiting for?
Peace and hugs, Leah

Creating. Inspiring. Beautiful. You Are All of Those Things.

I love creating messages that inspire beauty.
I love the act of drawing.
Drawing is my meditation, focusing on details with a single train of thought on my subject is calming and inspiring.


I want to continue having time to create. I want to share my art with the world. This desire isn’t born of just wanting to earn an income. Rather, it is because I want to soothe wounds, heal broken places, spark radical self-love in each of us.

Much Love to ALL Are Welcome Here – Art

“Much love to ALL are welcome here!”

I illustrated this after hearing too many stories and reading too many articles about the anti immigration, anti refugee propaganda that has increased in my country since a new president was elected to our government. I was raised to love and accept all people and hate is not in line with my beliefs. I hope this piece of art warms your heart with knowing that there is one more person in the world who supports love, not hate.
