I just realized that I thrive on creative challenges. Creativity itself thrives on challenges and expansion. Part of that process is discovering new ways of being creative. It’s not always easy, but it’s worth the attempt. Did you know that you can create in exploratory ways, adventurous ways, unchartered ways, collaged ways, flowered ways, manipulated ways, which ever way there is?? Experimenting with new alternatives in creating fashion and communicating ideas requires passion. All you have to do is allow your mind, heart and soul to be open to it and be courageous enough to take the risk. Trust yourself that you can do it! Let it be new, exciting, puzzling, head turning, head scratching, thought-provoking, and perhaps even shocking. And always, always Beautiful. Beautiful images. I choose to depict beautiful girls, exotic girls. Beautiful women treated with the utmost respect. I call them my girls, God‘s angels, mom’s girls. For it was a mom who showed me how to draw beautiful girls when I was five or six years old. They are now “ our girls “. Passion is the power to allow oneself to be enthusiased and encouraged to make and create art. For me it is an opportunity to communicate my ideas on beauty and fashion. I’m just realizing that has been my path and my journey throughout my life! In making up for all those past years when I didn’t realize it, I now give gratitude and thanks for my hands, my eyes, my mind, my heart, my creative soul and most importantly my higher-source-power of energy, life, and love. Namaste.
