The Art Witch Blog

I’m an Art Witch, a mythical artist, photographer, designer, intuitive and all-around creative based in the Norwegian mountains and this is my blog.

This is where I share my creative expression and do my best to inspire, empower, share tips and information, and give the occasional kick in the butt so you can have a more fulfilling life. You’ll also find a lot of art, some behind the scenes and works in progress, as well as some strong opinions, and a swear word or two. If you enjoy the posts, please share them.

The Hedgehog is a Lovely Creature

The adorable Hedgehog has been around for a long time and has changed little over the last 15 million years. There are many stories about the Hedgehog from the areas where it exists and I want to share some folklore with you today.

Creating A Pop-Up Gallery For Your First Exhibition

Jane offered this post and although I don’t teach art, and I know not all of you are artists, I thought you might find it interesting. Creating a temporary pop-up gallery is a great way to attract a new audience for your art, especially if you haven’t exhibited before.
