Beginning, again


I recommitted to creating art on January 5, 2015.

And for the past 8 months, I have taken many joyful steps toward reclaiming my hearts desire. This miraculous process has often felt like I was welcoming back my best friend after a very long absence, filling my soul with gratitude that I finally found my way back to what I most love.

What is different this time around?

  • First, I’m creating art because I love to create, and to share what I create, not to make a living from it.  If I sell some art, great, but I don’t need to sell because I have a day job that I love.
  • Second, I’ve learned A LOT in the past 10 years about how to live my life in a grounded, connected, conscious way, and my latest journey with art is reflecting this growth. No more pushing and driving myself into the ground to become a successful artist. I now I know I am kind, giving, and awake – these make me a “success”.
  • And third, and most importantly, I am completely open to where this journey with art will take me, and am allowing the universe to completely direct my path this time around. EVERY moment. Maybe I’ll sell some art, maybe not, and either outcome is good and what I want. I’m simply trusting that life will guide my steps, one blessed moment at a time.

So my journey to create art begins again, with my arms are wide open to where I am being led to contribute. I hope you will take this sacred journey with me, and along the way, we will support each other to find the path that reflects each of our highest goods, and that of all concerned.
