Welcome! So you want to know a little more about Peleegirl. I’m a naturalist and long-time birdwatcher, who has always had an artistic bent. I was a fortunate as a child to always have a sketchbook and art supplies and I’ve been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. 2012 was a difficult year for me, both personally and professionally and I turned to art journaling as an outlet for my emotions. Little did I know the would lead me to not only become healthier and happier, but I have finally found my stride and my voice as an artist. My art, while it may not always be obvious, is inspired by the beauty and wonder of the natural world. You’ll see lots of colour, lots of birds and lots of me in these posts. I love to work in mixed media and you’ll find me painting most Sunday nights (you can follow along on Twitter and Instagram for instant updates). I hope you enjoy.
