Welcome one and all to a place where words become artworks. We, Sara Ferreira and Gisela Martins, invite you to become a dreamer and surrender to imagination as we share with you our work, thoughts and inspirations.

The brightest Desert Wild Flower is exactly who you want to meet when you get stranded on sandy landscapes that seem to never end. Probably your senses got garbled under the scorching sun, walking on a never-ending loop and following your own footsteps until you depleted your rations.
Now that you took the step to ask for help and are definitely in good company, rejoice as you’re lead through the shortest path to a refreshing -although hidden- water well, feasting on the food generously provided by the leader of the camp, taken by your passion and will to succeed, despite the adversity and pain.
You’re alive and you feel hope again, weighting what you truly treasure (now that you almost lost it) finding that maybe, most important of all, you’ll make sure you get out of this experience something that will make you better.
A friendly smile reminds you that you’re not alone on your quest and that makes you feel ready to get back on your feet.
Brave forward! But falling and getting up again isn’t easy, no matter what anyone can say, so for now… Rest.
Like most creators we too have complicated relationships with older works. But every now and then, when revisiting and going down a memory lane there comes along something that makes us feel like it could receive a bit more care.
That brings us to this revisited desert wild flower, previously drawn back in 2016 and now worked on a little bit but still at a work-in-progress stage – we’re specially eager to bring colour to that outfit!
Although celebrating has been made a tad challenging, we saved a precious moment for reflection and found a way to make delicious lemonade from the bitter lemons life handed us this year, in pandemic and otherwise form.
We too share the feeling that 2020 lasted for an eternity but was gone before we knew it. With all our might we tried our best to stay focused and worked towards achieving our goals, and this little blog has been a wonderful tool for honing our skills.
And though we by heart are of a shy nature, your kind comments, your likes and follows warm us up and smilingly greatly help the determination to push forward! Indeed knowing you’re there, watching our creative art and reading our words and adaptations, has placed in us a sense of welcomed duty!
So dear readers and dreamers, thank you for last year, and here’s to another! May the cherished hope shining over 2021 be kind and bright but not blinding in order to focus and not stray from a conscious path.
As we have a feeling that the potential is there, let’s all work to make 2021 a wonderful year and achieve our chosen goals!
