Knowing that life is ever ebbing and flowing I wanted to repost this

The #LittleDragon @BruceLee permeated culture in such a way; he had a grip on human potential. He’s ingrained in so much of our unconscious movement. He turned Hong Kong into a backdrop of wonder, his nunchucks an extension to the gears in his mind. His very name became an aspiration, an association to some golden beyond.
Enter the Dragon was but a vehicle for a philosopher who considered himself a martial artist first and foremost. In some ways, film was the necessary evil for him to get across the ideologies he not only believed in, but put into practice #EnterTheDragon #RootsofFight #KnowYourRoots

Some of my work, over the past 10 years (most in these images from past 4)
I was born and raise in Charleston, my life through my 20s was mainly about deciphering what it meant to be a human, to be me, to have the chemical balance I have, to know myself physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Leaving Charleston feels like a chance to shed my skin and see what lies beyond the basic need to understand and to communicate basic needs and interactions with people. Here’s to what lies ahead and to art and it’s amazing ability to offer reflection. #charleston #charlestonartist #scart #gatrelle #artist #bodyofwork #artshow #gallery #galleryspace #artistoflife #mixedmedia
‼️ ATTENTION ALL ARTISTS ‼️
lately, i’ve missed the feeling of coming together with all of my friends and fellow artists and just doing what we love; both collectively and creatively.
so, i decided that this sunday (feb 17th), i’ll be holding a jam session! it’ll start at 1pm, and run till whenever. :)
sharing our art, talent, and our passions with each other while sharing the energy around us is a wonderful thing, and so i wanted to bring it back for the one time!
this is of course, not just for singers, but for all my creative friends who are artists (or just for those who wanna come for a good time)! it’s also just a great way to have a friendly get-together :)
so if you’re interested, shoot me a DM for the address so i can get a count of who’s coming! (it’s not the quantity that matters, of course; it’s the quality of people... but it’d still be nice to keep track haha.)
i’d love to see some of my friends there! so, feel free to spread the word, and i hope to see some of you guys this sunday! much love! 💙

I interrupt the previous scheduled inspired by Morocco to give you a little look at the tools I use. I use a professional grade carving tool and an easy to carve plate from @mcclains.printmaking.supplies - McClain’s Printmaking Supply is an online/catalogue company located in Portland, Or. some of my tools I have had for over 20 years - since college. Worth the investment and are made to be sharpened. Although I have a professional do this task - I don’t sharpen knives very well! Ok here’s the nitty gritty..... I use tracing paper because it allows me to create repeated blocks and also transfer the to the plate. The green block is the Gomuban plate. It is a Japanese product, made of synthetic rubber. It is easy to carve and holds amazing detail. For my beginning classes I use a different product called Blick Ready Cut from DickBlick.com. The tools are called Futatsu Wari Moku Hanga To.... that’s a mouthful!!! The two types of tools I use are, Komasuki - U-Gouge, and Sankaku To - V-Gouge. They range in sizes from 1.0 - 9.0. I tend to use the smaller sizes 1.0 - 3.0, and more U-Gouge than the V-Gouge. This is all personal based on what I like to cut. For printing I use @speedball_art Fabric Block Printing Ink. There is a limited palette but I love mixing colors, this ink has the best consistency and drying time that I have found. To complete your printing station you need a piece of plexiglass, a roller, spatula, and I use some scrap fabric underneath my fabric I’m printing on. That is it.... all you need to get started block printing! Please feel free to DM me of you have any questions! #valoriwells #blockprinting #printmaking #blockprintingtools #artistoflife #artist #gomuban #mcclainsprintmaking #speedballink #dickblick #carvingtools #printingonfabric
Podcast, la dernière ligne droite. Qui aurait cru que je me lancerais en compagnie de Bénédicte, une collègue créative et motivée dans ce genre de projet. J'en avais envie, c'est certain. Mais je ne me lançais pas. Toute série de raison m'en empêchait. Après coup, je peux vous dire que peu comptait hormis la première, moi. Il faut juste avoir le courage de se lancer pour ce qui compte, que vous aimez et abandonner l'idée de la perfection. C'est perfectible et c'est le but. On évolue, on apprend, on s'améliore. Mieux vaut imparfait que jamais ! Alors lancez-vous ! Et vous quel est le dernier défi que vous avez entrepris Quel est le rêve que vous voulez accomplir #podcast #université #university #wish #dream #project #followyourdream #dreamalife #artistoflife #studio #work #accomplishments
When is the last time you visited your heart space 💚We live everyday in our minds and rarely get still enough, or quiet enough to hear the small whispers of the heart. That small beautiful voice that so desperately wants to tell you all of it’s wonderful secrets. The vibration is so sweet. Like honey and roses. Be still. Venture into it. The Light is beautifully green and pink....like the iridescent color when magic happens while blowing a bubble.
Let the heaviness fall away
Stay in the Magic
Let it flow through you
Sweeping away the dust and clutter
The space is now filled with
A beautiful rose gold Light
Place it in your heart space

Kelly and I talk a lot about taking our creative inspiration from our travels and bringing it home, feeling those experiences and expanding our art and life. I recently returned from a retreat in Marrakech and I have been experiencing this creative explosion myself. My work in fabric design and block printing always stems from my photography. Upon my return from Morocco I was going through all of my images and finding the cauldron of creativity and ideas boiling over, in my few days home I have carved 5 blocks and feel like I’m just touching the surface of possibilities. There are quilts floating around, fabric designs formulating and new ideas for teaching what I love. This is what travel is all about.... I’m riding the wave of Morocco and in a few months Bali will spark a new creative expansion. Here is one of my recent blocks inspired by Morocco.

More Moroccan adventures! After the retreat @shawnahaynes and I took a brassware class from Ateliers d’Ailleurs. This craft is not easy, to create these designs using a hammer and a nail (maybe more like a screwdriver head) is unbelievably hard. The other project was to cut an intricate shape with a saw, needless to say we broke a lot of blades. The class was so much fun because we had three University students as our guides/interpreters.... they were kind and generous, chatting away about their dreams and ambitions! @salwa_lam, @oumaima.loudi And our instructor, Mohammad, was so patient with us... learning a new skill, his work was amazing. He learned his craft from his father and his grandfather. Unfortunately he has no one who wants to learn from him. It is a reminder of how important it is to pass on these art forms to the next generation. This was an amazing experience and I was humbled to get to try something completely out of my wheel house! (Swipe to see our adventure. 3 image is Mohammad’s work.) #valoriwells #travelingartist #artistretreat #artistoflife #travelingphotography #ateliersdailleurs #marrakech #morocco #creativelife #brassware #liveacreativelife #marrakechart #outofmycomfortzone
Journaling doesn’t take being magical. It takes being open minded and seeing things in a different way. I had this business card (the white piece in the corner) that has a really pretty gold flower details and I wanted to use it my journal. So I looked around at some things I had that match a boom. After that I foaled journaling prompts and choose to write a letter to future Lexy. Who knows when I will really sit and read this again but for the day I do it’s here and ready. If you ever wondered if you should journal I highly recommend it. Try and see start small and go big.
Q: Favorite thing on this page

I'm currently participating in the #PsDailyChallenge and this is my entry for Day 4 - Collage. I wanted to create a kind of digital scrapbook :) The Challenge is a lot of fun and a great way to explore Photoshops and build your skills (and also it's just amazing to discover the work of others and see with what the came up). I'm pretty much a beginner and already learned a bunch of things 😍
And just in case anyone is curious, you can follow my art account @beautiful_souls_art to see my work from the other days (in my story highlights) :)
