My name is Candace Lawlor and I'm a wife, mama, wanderer, dreamer and artist.

I live a simple country life with my husband, three young children and our dog in a small town at the very edge of the ocean where we can listen to the waves through our bedroom window at night. Our days are spent hiking in the woods observing wildlife and nature, or beachcombing along the shoreline. When Mother Nature is in a mood and we can't enjoy the outdoors, we are building and cooking and playing and creating.

This is the life I've always dreamed of. No matter how old I get, I remain wild and young at heart. I have a constant yearning to go exploring and am lucky to have three kids who are always up for the next adventure. I never stop seeing the beauty in the everyday things that go largely unnoticed. My camera and notebook are always nearby and there is no end to the inspiration to be found around here.

This online home is a peek into my everyday life as an artist, snippets of our coastal life and adventures with our three wildlings. I hope you'll find some inspiration here too.

P.S. If you'd like to know more about my background and how I became an artist, you can read this blog post :
