Color Charts book – the complete collection

Color Charts Book

When I made my very first color charts for myself to use, early 2016, I couldn’t imagine that I was doing something different than other people who made color charts. But apparently I DID! For several years now, my blank color charts have been used by hundreds of colorists and artists around the globe! And many requests have been made ...

Any Art Netty, thanks for the shout-out

Thank you, Any Art Netty

A couple of days ago I received a message from Netty, asking my permission to use one of my blank color charts in a video. She said she would credit me and share a link to my website in return.

Mood swing in progress…

Mood swing in progress

Menopausal Mood Swing Women my age (ouch, doesn’t that sound like I’m an old tart? I’m only 50! ?) most likely will know what a mood swing is… It’s part of that phenomenon that’s called ‘Menopause’. Unlike many other women, I don’t have the hot flashes (hope I’m not jinxing it now… 😛 ). Occasionally I do have night sweats, ...

As you probably know, I’ve got quite a few color charts in my webshop. And they’re all free for you to download and use. The last couple of days I’ve been working really hard to add all the color charts that were already on my Dutch website, but weren’t here on the English one. Simplifying Previously I wrote all my ...

Go with life’s flow… and then what?

Life's flow

If you’ve read my latest blog carefully, you might have noticed that I talked about the FIVE drawings that I’ve made for the Costa Women Make It Happen 2019 Planner. But I’ve only shown FOUR! While writing that blog I was in a certain flow that I didn’t want to disturb. And telling about that last drawing just didn’t fit ...

Costa Women Planner

Ali is the founder of a community called ‘Costa Women’, for women living in Spain (or dreaming of/hoping for a life in Spain). There are women from 64 different countries connected with each ...
