2016 in review

Last year was a busy one, all be it a quiet one on my blog...

I have made some structural changes to my schedule for 2017 and will hopefully be around here a whole lot more as I will no longer be guest teaching at local stores on weekends.

If you are a fellow blogger then you will know that it takes time to take the right photos and to type up the text, there just wasn't that time available last year as I installed my art in Truth Coffee in January, Steam restaurant in July and created a few HUGE things for an office in Westlake followed by a commission for 7 huge modern artworks for a private house which I installed late in December!  In between that, I did guest teaching for local scrapbook stores and taught 6 classes a week at my own studio!

Here are the projects I did take photos of...

Truth Coffee

Steam Restaurant 
Houwhoek convention

Art journal classes


Westlake office

Private home




  1. OMG you are a machine I don't know how you have managed to do it all. I love the steampunk thing and your paintings are just gorgeous. I hope that 2017 will be good to you too.

  2. Wow, you really did have a busy (and clearly successful) year Bella - congratulations on all you achieved. I am not surprised you did not find much time for blogging! So pleased to hear that you will be blogging more, your work is incredible and I look forward to seeing what you create in 2017!! Happy New Year! Hugs, Anne xx

  3. Wowza Bella, I'm in Steampunk heaven right now. These are amazing. I can't wait to see more of your stuff.


Its always lovely to hear from you , so thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.
