Hello everyone 😊 In 2013, my daughter and I travelled to Turkey for a weeks break. Whilst there, I popped into a lovely working sculpture gallery run by an artist who created the most incredible sculptures using just about everything he could find from his local beach. I came home full of inspiration, so I went on the hunt for some driftwood and came up … Continue reading Fun Fish Sculpture
I was dying to get started with pastels so in July, I grabbed what pastels I had to hand and got stuck in! I searched a pic from Google of this gorgeous cat and set about adding as much fur detail as possible. My dad loves it! Commissions are always welcome. Please visit my instagram page Heidi Hawkins Art ( I also have facebook, Pinterest … Continue reading A painting for my dad.
Last August, in Goa during the rainy season, whilst I was driving along one of the back roads in Benaulim and marvelling at the electric green foliage everywhere, I saw a puppy at the side of the road. He was all alone and he clearly had the signs of the onset of mange. He just stood there, so tiny and stared at me with huge, … Continue reading Puppy Rescue in Goa
When I came to Goa with my children, around ten years ago now, we all fell hopelessly in love with all the stray dogs. We felt desperately sad about their predicaments and our hearts would break to see their forlorn faces, their big, sad eyes staring back at us from mangey, flea-ridden faces. Alone and unloved, they would wander the streets and beaches, searching for … Continue reading Goa Animal Welfare Trust GAWT
“A massive marble structure, without weight, as if formed of ether, perfectly rational and at the same time entirely decorative, it is perhaps the greatest art work which the forming spirit of mankind has ever brought forth.” Count Hermann Keyserling, German Philosopher There is barely a year I can remember when I haven’t gazed wistfully and longingly at photographs of the greatest monument on earth; … Continue reading The Taj Mahal
As an artist, I do love tattoos. Especially when they are well-designed creations painted with skill. However, this isn’t quite how I would describe my initial four small tattoos which were impulse purchases between the ages of fourteen and eighteen. Absolutely no thought went into them whatsoever. I literally would just rock up the nearest tattooist and with a few quid in my pocket, pick out … Continue reading Ganesha, Mandala and The Flower of Life: My tattoo
Today, I’m thankful for my life. For the fact that I’m here. Living. Breathing. Experiencing. Loving. Working. Last week, someone I knew eighteen years ago, died. It hit me surprisingly hard. He was a good man and a very dear friend to me. More like a surrogate father really. We drifted apart and, now he’s gone, there will never be the chance to connect again. … Continue reading Daily Gratitude

This excerpt from the documentary KUNDALINI highlights how our kundalini energy, our awakened consciousness, which rises from the root chakra to the crown, is depicted in religions of the world. HINDUISM According to Hindu tradition, Kundalini Shakti or the divine feminine energy resides at the base of the spine in the first chakra and slowly makes her ascent up the spine when she has been awakened. … Continue reading Kundalini Awakening Within Religion
Regular T.V doesn’t hold much interest for me. The majority of what we are shown is fear-inducing, low vibrational content. Not all of the time, granted. Comedy shows and earth and animal documentaries are great and really interest me and I’m sure you guys all have your own personal favourites too, but the sad fact is, we never really get shown the truth about the stuff … Continue reading Gaia
