I would like to share with you my journey of art.
I took my first brush at a very early age, I don't remember exactly how my painting started. I think it was organic growth, so gradual that I didn't realize it, but I believe inside my heart I knew my calling. My interest in art, textures, patterns, colors, and technique grew, therefore I kept on creating.
But the real art, honest, true art didn't start till I had my own family. Years ago I started my masterpiece. Marriage - stroke ONE, children - stroke TWO, building the home - stroke THREE...and so on... We keep on painting our story till now in a Scandinavian environment.
Scandinavian life philosophies inspired me. Quote of Benjamin Franklin perfectly defines a Scandinavian approach to life “Happiness consists more in small conveniences or pleasures that occur every day, than in great pieces of good fortune that happen but seldom.”
I love this attitude, it encouraged me to implement art in my life, whether it was crafting with my kids, creating a gift, painting for family members, renovating, redesigning the house, arranging gallery walls, or painting on canvas. I tried to create aesthetics around a sacred space - my home. Breakfast toast decorated like emoji, or pancakes from scratch with chocolate hummus and berries, table set up for a dinner party, new painting, or framed inspirational quote to brighten the day :)
Art is everywhere...
