Four years ago my world came crashing down when my fiance’ and I broke up. There I was, 30 years old, with a new baby building a life with a man I loved with all my heart and soul. I’d spent years encouraging him to move forward in his career while giving up mine preparing myself to become a mother and wife – something I believed to be my one true purpose in life.
My hopes, my dreams and expectations of a white picket fence and big family smashed to a million pieces. The months ahead were slow and stressful. I was heartbroken, a sleep deprived single parent and felt like I’d lost my purpose. What had MY life become???
Escaping my world and burying myself in my art was all I wanted to do. It was the only place I could ‘feel myself’.. my safe space with no judgement and no annoying questions or expectations.. When I started to gain a following on Instagram I was pretty chuffed! It was so nice that other people seemed to like my art just as much as I did! This, along with encouragement from friends and family, really helped shift my perspective to a place of sharing my gifts and brightening other peoples lives which is what really saved me in my darkest moments. Art it seemed had become my therapy. I gained a following on my Instagram account pretty quickly and the feedback really motivated me to continue down this path.. A path I am so happy I can share with you .
All the money in the world couldn’t replace the feeling I get when someone tells me how much they love my art. I hope to share my gifts with you, inspire others to pursue their passion and spread positive vibes as far as I possibly can. Love and gratitude
