FROM MY HAPPY PLACE
To the self-taught, curious and open-minded, this work is dedicated to you.
A career spent in branding and marketing has taught me one thing: passion is a secret sauce possessed by a select few. It’s not an easy thing to find. In fact, I felt like a fraud for years - helping others define what makes them “tick,” when I had no idea how that felt myself.
After a lot of self discovery and a commitment to shed my perfectionism, I found it in painting. It’s an incredible feeling to capture the beauty of a moment and tell its story visually. Some people call it passion, but now that I’ve experienced it personally, I call it a heart whistle. It’s a deafening experience that causes you to lose consciousness of everything else around you. It’s beautiful, really, and something that I believe we’re all meant to find in this life.
And so it is that I share my work with you, in hopes that it encourages you to find your own heart whistle...and pass it on.
