I love that by creating art I have a platform to meet like-minded souls and have an outlet for my imagination...

I have always created art and been passionate about drawing but it was only in the last month or so I realised that I could actually live the soul fulfilling life I was meant to. After having a few things fall apart in my life (as they do), I had hit rock bottom. I wasn't happy. I had felt for weeks like I had been waiting for a transition, something to change me, but nothing had. Then all of a sudden my path became clear. Why not pursue the thing that made me happiest? It was funny because before, that hadn't felt like an option, like something you weren't meant to do. 

So I resigned my hospitality job, and decided to pursue art as my job and passion, alongside studying art psychotherapy. 

It was a super nerve-wracking choice to resign from my job, but at the same time I couldn't be more excited, especially since I have a few fun little exhibitions, markets and projects coming up! So far I'm enjoying working for myself,  it's a lot of time management/organising/planning but when its all towards something you love, doing it sort of doesn't really seem like work. 

I'm also about to start "The Horoscope Project" which will span over a year starting this September. I want to draw each sign each month with the aim of creating a small community that is involved in the project.  So I'll be reaching out to each horoscope sign at the start of each month with a set of questions which will allow more insight into the attributes/vibes of each sign that can be channelled into the drawings. 

 I love that by creating art I have a platform to meet like-minded souls and an outlet for my imagination and I can't wait to see what magic this path brings.
