Happy Holidays from what I call myself an accidental Artist! I always loved to draw since I was very young but unfortunately as the years passed my art (which I loved) took a back seat to socialising, going to College, working 100 different jobs, moving countries, developing new relationships and leading a very busy life where I slowly lost my creativity!
In April of last year (2013) my life took a turn (for the best) although at the time it didn’t feel that way. My hectic and crazy life caught up with me and one day I found myself overwhelmed and feeling stretched from one corner of the world to the next.
There are many terms for this and I decided to call it the day I “dropped my basket. ” And not only did I drop it, I actually threw it! To witness it from an outside perspective I’ve been told was quite a frightening and messy experience however for me, it was the most freeing and liberating experience of my life.
After my basket was on the ground I made one choice and that choice was to spend the next 8 months, putting myself first and only being responsible for me! So I quite my job, (which they were in agreement with) and I travelled into me which is how I found my art again. It was still there, coveted with doubt and uncertainty but with the help of my partner I slowly found my creative self, the dreamer, the visionary, the believer, the larrikin and the explorer.
So this year I decided to turn my art into cards with the proceeds going to help support my website http://www.findhelpfordepression.com This site was created this year to help others who may have dropped their baskets as well and need some special guidance from others who have done the same.
If you’re interested in purchasing my cards please let me know. The cost is 5 for AU$ 25 which includes shipping . This prints can also be used for t-shirts, cushions , mugs, underwear, wallpaper, toilet paper and much much more! My mission is to spread the love so, Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more Information. I also have other pieces you might be interests in.
My Lesson #1 Now that I’ve picked up my basket again I am very aware, careful and discerning on what I add to it & for the first I understand that I always have the choice to take something out if it gets too heavy or becomes rotten!! 🙂
