Here’s to Not Knowing (2018 Onward)

Here’s to Not Knowing (2018 Onward)

One of my goals for 2018 was to create more traditional artwork + make them more personal to me. I think I made that happen. 😊

Looking back, I was more vulnerable in my work than I’ve ever been. And I’m so, so happy about that ♥️. 
I didn’t know 2018 would be the year I would feel and heal through the pain of my past relationships and the absence of an emotionally available parent in my life. 
I didn’t know I would say hi, befriend, and REALLY experience emotions like anger and sadness as well as fear and shame.
I didn’t know giving myself permission to feel these “unacceptable” feelings and understanding the human and personal reasons behind them would relieve the tightness from my chest and the heaviness of the critic from my mind. 
I didn’t know I could feel more love, not by rushing to help someone, but by continually looking within and asking the questions I need most to hear: “How am I feeling? What do I want right now? What do I need?”
(I’m getting choked up just hearing those words.) 
To those who reached out to me because you were struggling with life decisions and creativity this year, I love you and feel you. You are not alone, as you reminded me the same. 
I am currently working on resources that may help me and others heal and create again, as it is something I am learning and practicing to do everyday. 
I don’t know what 2019 will hold, but not knowing got me here. And not knowing will get me through.
Thank you for reading this far and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU!!! I love you! ♥️

Artist Alley for Beginners is Open Again for 3 Weeks

Artist Alley for Beginners is Open Again for 3 Weeks

Re-released with Love

I’m happy to announce that the Artist Alley for Beginners course is back up and open for registration!

I’ve been holding onto this course quietly close in my heart for a very long time now, giving it the love and acceptance it needed for me to re-release it back into the world.

I was fearful of what this course would mean to me if people didn’t receive it in a positive way. I wasn’t happy with what I’ve done, so I hid it from view.

Now I know, as long as I love it and believe in its value and beauty, that’s all that matters. <3

So it is with newfound love and acceptance that I share this course with you again, along with the rest of the world.

Along with the knowledge I gained from my years of experience in the artist alley scene and actionable suggestions, worksheets, and checklists to guide you in your artist alley preparation, this course will remind you to be true and authentic to who you are.

If this course’s mission resonates you, I welcome you to read more about it here.

And for this week only, I am offering the course at 50% off of the original price.

Next week, the price will be ~25% off original price.

And on the final week of open registration, the course will be offered at the full original price.

Course registration will close on 11:59 PM PT on October 7, 2018.

You are welcome to purchase this course whenever you like.

Thank you for your openness to this course and have a wonderful day!


P.S. Here’s to loving and enjoying your artist journey all the way through. <3
