Spirit of the Universe 

The spirit of the universe responds to action -wrote this in my notebook sorry I don’t have a source nonetheless truer words have never been written. 

It has been full on lately in the studio working on various recycled cardboard WIPs and keeping the dream alive. I live in a place where art is one of those things treated as a luxury item so making art that is meant to elate and spark thought, feeling and promite healing seems like an endless uphill climb! This is why it is important to keep focus on the work and to not let these doubts and thoughts threaten the mission. I decided many years ago to develop my art and with the intention of doing it for the rest of my life, and this has not changed to this day. Sure I have had my fair share of setbacks and sometimes the valleys have been deep. I have managed to always find the jewel of wisdom in each and every one of my experiences, even if it takes longer than I would like, this has been vital in keeping my art positive, and sticking to my intentions of bringing wellness, good vibes and peace into this world.

‘Frida’ hälts hybrid art

recycled cardboard WIPs are coming along nicely! Yew!

a messy studio is a good studio

I make all my own stencils from drawing to cutting out the stencils by hand, this gives them my uniqueness and style that would otherwise be lost if I just copied a photograph, that is why I get paid the big bucks! (reference here to Dace Chappelle, who apparently doesn’t like bloggers lol)


💛❤️💚 and lastly an exciting development is this helmet which I painted for Canadian Olympic skeleton athlete hopeful Mirela Rahneva, my helmet art will be featured in publications across Canada and on CBC, I am very honoured and stoked to be a part of this wonderful story, more on that as things develop!

live art brah

One day hälts walked into a store, his friends store called New Age Books and Crystals, he looked at a wall and it was as if the wall said ‘hälts put a mural up here’, and the rest was history. Fast forward several months and hälts thought to himself, ‘it’s time to get of the studio and do some public live art’. And wouldn’t you know it he found himself in the same shop he put his mural ‘creator’, so he set up his art studio and the rest is history in the works. The moral, if there is one, and to be blunt hälts is not so much an expert on morals, they are hard to define after all, the key here in all of this is simply when it calls, ‘do it’, and by ‘it’ I mean source. Tap the source and don’t look back. 

If you would like to go check out hälts painting click on the link to New Age Crystals and Books, for times and address proceed to the link following this message, hälts will be back at it next weekend! New Age FB link, click here

Direction is key to moving forward. 

halts setting course

the underlayer, setting the tone for the painting ahead

following a lovely day of painting hålts is smiling and the painting, yet to be titl, takes form

there really is so many ways to see it

this is an old technique, draw the image you want to paint on paper, cut it out, and this becomes the guide to the portrait ahead

the new face is outlined and begins to take shape

many rivers lead to the same ocean

hålts invited a friend to come and make a mark, and she did, gracias Nancy!

so many ways to see it

Mystical Experience

From these eyes do I see a world filled with wonder, beauty and the mystical. From these fingers flows experience and dreams held sacred in hands offered to those who share the path.

haze and confusion

Forgotten are the days
when head was in haze
caught up in the human confusion
armed with ink, paint brush and paints
I found solace in creative space
empty canvases the saviour
unleashing soul in silence
one brush stroke at a time.

I was born year of the Rabbit, makes sense this furry friend hangs out just outside my studio window, this is Pedro.IMG_3310.JPG

Currently I am working on a Tibetan inspired White Tara for a client, I have been working way at her for a few months, I have a deep respect for Tibetan Art and my intent is to ensure good vibrations and enjoyment to the patron for years to come.IMG_3309.JPG

nature moments…I enjoy long thoughts on a beach, this is just North of Victoria BC, it is very easy to get in rhythm with this place. Lady Pacifica always refreshes my spirit when I am near her. IMG_3307.JPG

This is a document of a small section of my ever changing studio environment, where no medium is safe.IMG_3308.JPGI work for her, she really appreciates my service.
