The Goddess has heard your cries!

So you pledged to have more ‘you time’, more ‘creative time’, more ‘being in the now’, & to ‘find kindred spirits’ in 2016 and beyond.

My pledge for 2016 is to ‘push the boundaries’ on my artwork and use all the supplies that I have acquired over the years. In other words to let go of the fear and see where these supplies & my art can take me.  This is exactly what I have done for you in my workshop & I cannot wait to share it with you!

Tiare, myself & 12 other fun’n’fabulous Artists have created a safe place for you to spread your creative wings & soar into a sparkly rainbow coloured horizon. This adventure is for Artists of all levels, from the newbies to the art journaling trail blazers!

ART JOURNAL jam 2015ART-retreat-Nicci-2015

To live your dream… is to truly live

I have a wonderful, adventurous idea!

I want to create a book!

A book inspired by a beloved fantasy novel character, that has been known and loved for over 100 years.

SANY0917-Nicci-Nov-2013This book would feature many fabulous Artists interpretations of said character.

Each Artist, along with myself, would submit their artwork along with an answer to a question asked of all the participating Artists.

This juicy sought after book would be available on Amazon.

Think about it!  Wouldn’t this be FABULOUS!

Now, the question is…….can this legally be done?

(this idea has been posted and filed by Nicci Battilana of Duran Designs Inc. on 08 March 2015)

Mr Wirtz hits the market!

I have recently had the great pleasure and challenge of bringing Mr Eward Wirtz to life through my art. As many of you know, drawing, creating, sketching the male face is not my forte….so to speak….lol.

Usually when I attempt to draw a male character they end up with very feminine features. It has taken two months of practice, but I believe the final outcome is a hit! Mr Wirtz is now ready to meet his public!blackberry-wood-cd-cover-reA local band, which is very fun, wildly creative and resemble Gypsies Circus freaks from the 1800’s (in the best way possible), is about to release their brand new album “Blackberry Wood in the Wild West Medicine Show … presented by Mr Edward Wirtz”.

To obtain your very own copy, please feel free to contact the band directly!
