The Girl with No Face

If there is one thing I have learnt over the years about being an artist, is that we are forever changing and continuously evolving. In my own personal cases, my work tends to show changes when I become restless or unsure about something essential. This, I'm afraid, has happened quite a lot in the past. Not very practical, I know, but it is how it is. It is who I am.

Given the state of mind and emotional changes I went through over the past few months, I have noticed some drastic developments in my work. It was to be expected, of course. Like all sudden changes, I had my share of hard times dealing with them. And like many times before, learning to accept them is usually the easier way to go...

Those of you who have continued following my posts over at Instagram may have seen this change. Is it temporary or permanent? That question stays unanswered until today. All I know is that my work, myself both as a person and an artist is a working progress. I don't think any of us stays the same through time. Our world, the people in our lives and the personal experiences we encounter will continue to shape us as a person. Maybe this is one of the bumps in the road that have truly shaken me, enough to wake me up completely and really look around with open eyes.

I don't suppose I'll see the last of these changes. For better or worse, I know that the only way to do now is to embrace it. Because again, it is how it is. It is who I am.

Have you ever experienced anything like this before? If so, please share your stories here with us. I know we can only benefit from them.

Your friend,


  1. These pieces are wonderful and intriguing Amalia.

    I attempt to be 'curious' about life and change, it seems to get me through surprise change with some grace compared to fighting it. Curiosity offers an open stance to see new possibility.

    1. That's very wise, Tammie. I agree that being open minded and curious about life will surely help you adapt to the constant changes of life. Thank you for sharing your thought. XO

  2. wonderful art, the first with the roses in her hair is really gorgeous.

    I think it's the opposite with me, I find other people change and I don't or at least, I don't think I've. it's hard to say if you're talking about yourself, you might not always notice any change or perhaps we always change but in little intervals or slight shift of moods and taste, not really sure these days but I hope to change a little, at least, trying to be more open and accept things as they come

    hope you have a lovely day.

    1. Thank you, Lissa. :)

      I do think that some people are more restless than others and that some (like me) can be way too sensitive to the things that go on around me. Sometimes I wish I could be more like you, but then I suppose our differences make the world colorful just as it is. Thank you for sharing, my friend. :)

  3. Interesting that you've become faceless with flowers. There's got to be some symbolism in that. Intriguing images and your stuffed creations are adorable!

  4. Thanks so much, Linda. I think these changes do contain pieces of puzzles that are scattered in my mind and heart. Still trying to put them all together, still hoping I'll discover more answers soon...


Tell me your lovely daydreams, they always make me smile! ♥
