For over 12 years I traveled the US for my corporate job, dreaming of the day when I could become a full time artist a second time (full story here). I repeatedly asked the Universe (all 12 years) to make it “damn obvious” when would be the highest good time to quit. In 2018, I finally received a crystal clear sign to stop my traveling day gig and once again embraced life as full time artist.
What I didn’t realize as I traveled for 12 years was . . .
. . . how little art I would create once I got here. The reality is that I spend 80% of my time on the art business (which includes creating workshops) and 20% creating art. And even though I’m WAY busier now than when I worked full time as a corporate trainer, I love every moment of the sweet artist life that I’m blessed to live.
Now I’m following the signs again.
Actually I never stopped.
Since quitting my day gig 4 1/2 years ago, I’ve asked the Universe many times to make it crystal clear how my art can serve the highest good. And slowly the answers have trickled in, starting with finding my voice as an intuitive collage artist a couple years ago.
Then in January of this year, it became damn obvious that it was finally time to teach others my sacred collage process. Since then I’ve quickly learned to film art classes by participating in two art summits, followed by creating COLLAGE KICKSTART (a free 5-day course), and am now developing COLLAGE JOY, a 6-week intensive version of KICKSTART.
I have no idea what’s next.
And I’m ok with not knowing because I’ve learned that the Universe is constantly sending signs, even though usually small and subtle. It’s my job to listen and follow, even when some take 12 years to become damn obvious!
