The Art Witch Blog

I’m 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.

Can you make art from random words?

Painting stones for the garden with my daughter

It’s Easter break here so my daughter and I had some fun painting stones. We love having some colourful spots in the garden, regardless of what season it is so we have some painted stones out there. We wanted more so we made some. This might become a new spring tradition.
