Hi there

My name is Emily and this is my dedicated space for documenting my journey with creative living. It is my hope, that I can inspire those of you who visit, read and look through this space to find the curiosity to follow your own inner voice, seek out and do the thing that makes you go “this is what life’s all about.”

For a couple of years now every Halloween month (October) artist Mab Graves hosts an Instagram daily drawing challenge, entitled Drawlloween! I LOVE Halloween and really enjoy the build up to it, designing my costume and creating spooky art as the nights get darker and the days colder. Autumn is my favourite time of the year! I've never been able to keep up with daily challenges but this year I was determined to try my best and complete the challenge.... And I did!

31 spooktacular pieces of art, completed! I didn't manage to do one a day, as I just didn't have the time but I did have a 7 hour flight last weekend so that gave me more than enough time to catch up! I really enjoyed the dedication of (trying) to practice something daily and the sense of achievement when finishing was a really cool buzz! Another thing that kept me going was the fantastic amount of support the artist community on Instagram provided and it was amazing seeing how everyone interpreted all of the prompts!

Thank you, Mab, for hosting such an awesome challenge - I'm already psyched for next year!
