Fake it 'til you make it

... or how Chichiboulie came to be. It all started that day right before my eldest daughter's 5th birthday when I was presented with an opportunity though, truth be told, I didn't quite have the experience I may have said I did. But as they say, all's well that ends well and years later and through many changes, Chichiboulie or Gretchen Jakub Art is still alive and kicking and evolving along the way.

Chichiboulie began with a recreation of childhood full of wonderful images and whimsy: colourful paintings, fun-filled prints, sweet fabric creations and more. As time goes by, my interests as an artist have evolved and I'm currently working with more mixed media creations as I love to see the textures work together.

I balance my creative side with my "intellectual" side through my work as a therapist (both in energy therapies and psychotherapy and coaching) and find the two fit smashingly well together and are great complements to each other. I do believe I am very lucky indeed.
