Happy Easter!

It was such a beautiful day in Vancouver today - the sun was out, blue sky was blazing, cherry blossoms in bloom and the birds were twittering. The city and the people in it really sparkle with happy energy on days like these! I met up with a friend for some brunch at Slickety Jim's, went for a walk with a Kafka's latte and took it all in. Now I'm about to curl up on my couch with some bunny pasta, an aptly themed gourmet dinner for big J's day, followed by a chocolate coma with some new Mad Men. Life is good.


Beth Elise Art Shop is Open!

The big art shop opening is here! I have unveiled my latest work called Center - a study of the way life pushes and pulls you and how our focus is taken from the outward facing, back inwards, to that beautiful golden center where it really counts. I did my morning yoga practice and used that middle point as my "drishti" and I tell ya, I didn't fall off balance once ;)

Beth Elise HAS launched!

So, I have spent a lot of time in the last years, pondering my life, trying to decide which direction I was going to take. No easy task, because I started asking myself the big questions that I have never asked myself before. Everyone has them, some are universal, some are unique to the individual. I see the answers to my big questions as the truths I'm most afraid to admit to myself, including the beautiful things that will make me happy and whole. It would seem that those big, brilliant, shining things can be the hardest to see because they are so bright, and they are different, and it might not be easy... but then again, maybe it will be if I stop getting in my own way. I have a lot to do to realize this shiny dream I hold dear, but my best friend Jessica always says to me: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."

Well, this creative endeavour is my elephant, and I'm feeling hungry.

One bite at a time.
