So many moons ago, I was introduced to this incredible novel, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I was young, and this book awakened in me the stirrings of a connection to something deeper within, a connection to a million lifetimes ago. That resonation took me on a journey, deep and still in my heart, to connect with the Goddess, to honour the … Continue reading Beltane.
Ive discovered the reason why I broke my leg! ( Good job too because I was beginning to wonder what the hidden meaning was)! Turns out it was so that I could create art like this.

Everyday, I wish I could just do art because it’s … Continue reading Animal Portraits in Pastels

I am sent … Continue reading Connecting With The Universe

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.
Hello folks! Today, my blog post is all about my wonderful daughter’s photography. India is studying media at college and usually would have the use of a very nice DSLR camera. However, during lockdown here in the UK, India has been getting creative in our garden by shooting some rather impressive macro photography on just her Samsung A40. So here they are for you to … Continue reading Macro Photography on a Samsung A40
