art will save your life

 “Passion is the fire that drives us to express who we really are.”

This is one of my favourite paintings…and here’s why…it holds all the magic and joy of the newbie abstract artists who created it in a spontaneous moment of fun, creative freedom and play.

🎨✨ Art has the incredible ability to uplift our spirits and bring positivity into our lives! ✨🎨 Whether you’re creating it or simply admiring it, art has a way of sparking joy and inspiring us to see the world in new and beautiful ways. 🌟

So take a moment today to appreciate the power of art and the positive energy it brings. Whether it’s a painting, a sculpture, or a photograph – let it fill your heart with happiness and remind you of the beauty all around us. 💕

Let’s all take a moment to celebrate art and the amazing impact it has on our lives! 🙌 VIEW AVAILABLE ARTWORKSFollow The Pied Piper of Delight!

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you’ll know someone once asked if I was the woman who painted like a child. It was meant as a criticism at the time, but I have come to view it as my greatest strength, and I am in great company. Looking at life and art through the eyes of a child reduces fear and increases joy, playfulness and fun. Fear restricts…. child-like play delights.

I share more about my journey away from fear and trauma and into the life-saving world of art in my book, “Dancing Through Fields of Flowers.” Available in eBook for immediate inspiration.

Feeling blocked, depressed or demotivated? There are so many reasons why you should follow your joy. If you need some motivation, look no further than this book.

another heart-warming story that is a great read for young and old

Once again Cassandra has done what she does so well: spread joy through her magic with words that provide such wonderful visualisation. The reader could be forgiven for taking time out from reading to do a little dance as this is how well this book tells its story. Yes, it is not all bright and brilliant but those wee dark spots are treated so well that the reader can relate to Cassie and move through the process back to light, bright and happy with her. Definitely another heart-warming story that is a great read for young and old. Now it is time to go for another dance through the flowers of my garden……………..

You can find all my books to help awaken and enrich your creativity on Amazon and all good online retailers and on my website here:

Here’s the blurb:

Cassie dreams of being an artist but is discouraged by her family. After her parents’ divorce, she has to move house. Painting flowers helps her feel happy. She paints in secret, never allowing her dreams to die. She waters the call of her heart. One day, when she is a grown-up, she discovers that her childhood dreams have become her living realities. She becomes The Joyful Artist who paints like a child!
