I made this piece shortly after I began my personal development journey. A lot of times we don’t allow ourselves to really want something. We aim only for the things we think are accessible to us or the ones we think we deserve. But the truth is, we can have anything. We have the power to create any magnificence we desire- a beautiful home, financial freedom, a sexy partner, inner piece. When I made this, I wanted to feel inspired by love. It was the thing that was missing in my life. I thought about the embodiment of love and this is what I saw. Someone strong. Someone who was so transparent that the trust we build would be everlasting. Someone Universal. If love is what you are looking for, trust that the love I put into this piece will be like a magnet for desire in your life- for WHATEVER it is that you desire. Envision it. Feel it. Embrace it...And for those of you wondering if I found the kind of love I was looking for, the answer is yes.
I’ve loved drawing for as long as I could remember. The ability to recreate something I saw made me feel incredible. Even more fascinating was the ability to create the things that only I could see in my mind. But growing up I always associated being an artist with being a “starving artist”. I grew up believing there was a disconnect between the word artist and success. So I ventured out into corporate america in search of that success. I climbed the corporate ladder and in just a few short years became one of the youngest supervisors in my company. But there was always an emptiness inside. That feeling that I was wasting away my special skill. I knew that the thing I was supposed to do had to be something that no one else could do, because no one else could be inside my mind. I decided to stop denying what I knew was the truth all along. That I am an artist. That is the passion that I have in my heart. That is who I am in my purest, rawest form.
