Pretty soon, I was asked to take part in a local art exhibition and began selling my work locally and then online. Later, I created a website, started blogging and started to offer local painting workshops.
I’ve created various online art classes and more recently, have begun to offer design services and have loved the challenge of upping my skillset and finding a community of women all over the world.
Today, I still find it so helpful and powerful to leave my worries behind temporarily as I create whilst enjoying the added benefit of feeling less overwhelm and more self-compassion as I continue to process what I’ve learnt about myself, my faith and my situation long after the brushes have been put away. It’s a mystery how this gift of creativity weaves it’s magic inside of us but I’m so grateful for it and what’s even better, is that it’s available to all of us.
Looking back, I realise that these gifts have been life changing not only for me but have also proved transformative to others as I continue to develop and strengthen my skills and journey along with you…
