Life has really big ups…. and really deep lows. But you know it’s not just about waiting until we reach our “end destination” to look for the beauty surrounding us, because by now you’ve learned two things:

  1. there is no end destination and
  2. only focusing on the “end” means missing everything happening along the way.

Of course you feel frustrated with how life always changes and how it sometimes feels like everything is just getting harder. But when you reach the moments that make you smile, you remember where you were and suddenly you find yourself smiling just a little bit wider. Everything seems a little bit more poignant and a little bit more beautiful because you know what it took to get you there.

And that is the truly incredible thing about life. Every thing we experience, every emotion, pain, and joy we feel weaves our individual experiences into the beautiful stories of who we are.

I truly believe that each life is a story fit for the fairytales we used to believe in. Perhaps life hasn’t turned out how we expected, but the beauty lies in remembering the journey we've been given and knowing life is far better than we could have ever dictated it to be, could we have done so.

So with my art, I promise to try my hardest to see the beauty in my life and to keep telling my story. And hopefully yours as well.

In gratitude for your support, I have carefully considered how best to reward your patronage of my work with the rewards tiers I have created. Perhaps this is rather cheesy and has been said overly too much, but with complete honesty, every single dollar counts (I shop at thrift stores… dollars can go quite a ways for me... truly). I promise, in turn, to make every dollar you’ve spent to be completely worth your investment.

And of course, if at any time you feel this is not the case, do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected]. We’re in this together, after all.
