Creating a Lifestyle
I'm an artist. I've never thought of myself of a setter of trends. But I have a lifestyle. And I have a brand.
Creating a lifestyle brand, therefore, makes some sense. So I'm trying it out. I love sharing my art and I have a story to tell. Maybe you just like my art and want to help support my effort. I love that. But maybe your interested in learning more about what's behind the art, and why I do what I do.
My lifestyle is born of necessity. I've struggled with severe anxiety and depression while maintaining a fairly put-together persona to the outside world. It didn't work for me. So I made a change. And then I made another change.
Today, I'm starting to live the life I want to live. That means pushing out the negativity and welcoming in the light. Bold, colorful art leads the way. Statements of pride and rejection of outside judgment are key. And its all built upon confidence, a trust in oneself that if you keep working at it, you will succeed.
