At the end of every year, I like to take some time to reflect on my experiences. What did I do? How did it feel? Is there anything I want to change or avoid? Is there anything I want to repeat? Is my life on the right track?
2021 was a challenging year both personally and professionally. As a result, I find myself extremely thankful for: my health, my family, a loving partnership, a growing small business (despite the pandemic), and an incredible community of talented, inspiring people.
I am truly humbled for the support of loved ones, new and old friends, and fellow small business owners. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting your trust in me and my vision. I acknowledge your faith and kindness, it is not taken for granted. Seeing you enjoy my paintings, and thrive as a result of my workshops is a daily reminder of why I started painting & teaching in the first place.
I transition to 2022 with renewed strength and hope for a beautiful year ahead of us. I pledge to reflect that same love and support I've been shown. I'm so excited to see what 2022 has in store for us.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
