To create an environment where creativity can flourish in its purest form. A place where art can be its true self without worrying about what other people want or think. It is a place where art can be everything it wants to be and needs to be because it is free to roam. This is a community of creatives that delight in the art that they give to the world.
"If I can't be myself, I don't want to be anything, "that saying, the phrase, has been running laps around my mind for about a month now. I wasn't sure if I wanted to put it in an "About me" because it seems pretty dramatic, right? But that's the thing; I mean every single letter of that statement. It is the core of my being. It applies to me as a creative, a mother, a wife, and just a human being. I am constantly learning and evolving, but there's always me at the root of it all.
I was born in California and spent part of my childhood there. It was the best time of my life because I could embrace the curious, artsy hippie I was. I was able to roll around joyfully in knowledge, art, and being different like wildflowers in the forest. I drunk self-love and questioned everything in the Universe. It was rich and delicious, nourishing, and wholesome until one day it ended abruptly. A dark cloud loomed over my world, and in this place, no matter what you did, you'd never be enough. We must conform to a new way of life, and I was told to bury my soul deep inside myself.
By the time I grew into adulthood, I felt like I had lost who I was. However, I was determined to get me back. After years of hard work, sweat, tears, and almost dying, I am happy to say that I got myself back. And after everything I have been through, I don't want anyone else to have to feel lost or, at the very least, alone. It's hard going it alone as I did. That is why I am an artist, creator, and life coach. I put myself out there to express myself, but I also create to create community.
