Developed in the U.S., Designed from inspiration around the world.
In a meeting this week, I was asked what was my creative process; There is peace and there is wild, and I am both at the same time. I've been sketching here and there since 2015. Some designs were kept while others were thrown away. I'd think on the plane, in the car, at the end of a workday and throughout my entire weekend, I'd sketch.
When I realized my niche, I'd draw in spates. Not as if I was trying to remember something, but as the spirits guided me. Before I purchased a dining room table, I'd sit and lay on the floor. Constantly adjusting to relieve the pain in my back. Every time I traveled, I carried my art. I had a separate cube strictly for pens, pencils and paper. I'd work on several pieces at the same time as they're all rooted and connected to one another. My husband would tell me, you never finish anything. This was his way of pushing me. He was and still is the first to see every design.
As you may see the end result today, via the website from a festival and even here on IG, the story has been developing itself since my childhood. This is a love story, a true story and maybe even your story. Don't give up on what you find beautiful. Never let go of what steals your heart. The grind don't stop, The work don't stop. #nowstaywoke #strongwomen #handdrawn #originalart #artwork #tbt
