7 Things That Happen When You Practice Your Art Regularly

Hi fierclings, The past few weeks I have been in a deeply creative spell which I have mostly embraced. This creative high tide ( remember what I said about inspiration being a wave, so you better learn how to surf in this really old post from 2015? […]

Living Natural

Living Natural

Hi Fiercelings, Over the past few years I have become really passionate about living as natural as I possibly can. You might call this being crunchy. You might call me a hippie – I would consider that a compliment! You might call me a health freak. […]

A Fierce Life Ended: My Grandma

A Fierce Life Ended: My Grandma

Hi Fiercelings, My paternal grandmother, Dorothy, passed away on March 4th, 2017. She had been declining pretty drastically since Christmas and in the long run for the past 2 years. She would’ve been 97 years old this year if she had lived to her birthday […]

Fiercelings, While reading a fellow photographer/blogger’s post about ‘success’ the other day my brain started reeling…what is success? Because I think we should redefine it. When most people think of success I think they think of being 1. rich 2. having a really nice house or […]

The Artist Itinerary

Fiercelings, You may remember awhile back I was reading a book called the Creative Call. I wrote posts about it here(this is pretty much a follow up post), here and oh yeah here too. I loved this book so much! I discovered it in my […]

Anti-Niche

Hello Fiercelings, One thing I have noticed while being in the creative world is that everyone encourages you to find your “niche” to the point that I hate that word! Seriously, everytime I’m reading some creative forum, blog, group post or listening to a podcast […]
