My Mindful Moment series are 12 pieces that will directly fund my own therapy this year.

I realised I really enjoy fundraising for causes that inspire me but I often neglect myself. In 2020 I started therapy again which has been incredibly helpful, however, in order to access what I need it is a  paid service and I need to cover the costs. Therefore this year I will be releasing a painting on the last day of each month that I've painted mindfully that will directly fund my own therapy and hopefully I can raise awareness of mental health issues, reduce the stigma and create some good conversations and support to others.


The quote for this piece is, “Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” Joubert BothaI often remind myself of this as I may lead my life differently to others, but that's fine as it's my journey and the life I want to create for myself. I'm really happy with where I am and feel like I know myself well. So anyone who questions it can politely buzz off .


Amazing reference photo by @izzyfryphotography of two swallows. These amazing birds join us in summer but migrate to South Africa in the winter. Migrating swallows cover 200 miles a day, mainly during daylight, at speeds of 17-22 miles per hour. The maximum flight speed is 35 mph.


The painting is A5 sized, painted with vegan acrylic and watercolour paints on to sustainable bamboo paper and framed in a black made to measure frame. It will be sent next day delivery via DPD unless collection can be arranged.
