Maybe that seems obvious to most, but for me it is a change in my focus, a change in my life. For most of my working life I have been a full time floral designer. All of that changed last year. While I am still in the floral industry, it is as a part time employee. So it occurred to me what am i ? who am i ? Pretty deep stuff i know. But we really do define ourselves by what we do for a living or who we are related to. I decided that those definitions no longer work for me. So after much soul searching i have realized that i am an artist.
I have been an artist all my life. It has taken many forms, actor, dancer, musician, and now painter. I have always loved the arts and love to perform or be part of the audience. More importantly it means that I am allowing myself to fully embrace the creative side of me, to be the free spirited, bohemian girl that I really am. We need to forget about all the rules and just allow the artist to come out in all of us.
