Art Connects Us to Our Soul Fire

I believe everyone is a creative genius, we sometimes just get busy or let life weigh us down, and we forget what fills us with joy and restores our souls. I let that happen to me, and I lost my spark for a long time. Art fixed that.

I used to think I wasn't an artist because I can't paint a realistic portrait or landscape. I was putting too much pressure on myself and taking all the fun out of art. I finally realized that however we make our creative mark on the world is ok -- the point is in the making. Following our curiosity, dabbling, making a mess, having fun. I believe that hushing our inner critic and unleashing our inner artist helps us tap into our creativity in other areas of our life too. And it brings a meditative happiness that can spill over into other situations, other parts of our day.

Now I make paper art that makes me happy, and I hope it makes you happy too. Paper art is fast, cheap and less intimidating than trying to paint a masterpiece. I want to help you let your wild heart out of its cage and make art that heals you, delights you, and overfills your teacup. I believe that taking 30 minutes to create a journal page or card makes us human again, so we can continue being loving and compassionate toward others.

Thanks for looking. I hope you get to make a little art today!

    I think making art every day is good for us. It taps our creativity and brings us a microburst of joy. I paint mini art using a Gelli Plate. I love that no two are ever the same. I'm a little bit wild, a little bit proper. I am a Tiger in a Teacup.

Frequently asked questions
Does Tiger in a Teacup Studio have an Angel Policy?

Yes. I'm delighted if you like my art enough to use in your own creative endeavors! You may use my art to hand make your own one-of-a-kind art to sell, such as greeting cards or wall art. Please don't scan and sell multiples of the same item. If you have a question, send me a message and we'll work it out. It would be lovely if you could give me a shout-out!
