It’s a little crazy to me to think that now, around three years after I found my way back to making art which had a strong connection with my spiritual growth, I would find myself guiding others along with me. But having just launched my second online art workshop, Inspirit, which I wouldn’t have imagined myself doing even a year ago (I didn’t like being on camera), I am really proud of the internal work I’ve done to get to this point.
I’ve offered many different things in my business in it’s eight years of existing. From branding and web design, web development, design courses, running a design blog, selling digital graphics, selling artwork and prints, experimenting with physical products and collaborating on other products, designing metallic tats and leggings, and other ideas here and there. And there were fun moments in creating those. But there was just something really different in the process of creating these workshops.
I think it has a lot to do with knowing that I have moved through many of my own blocks to bring them to life. I know I still have more blocks to break through in order to bring even more of my best stuff to the world and I’ll keep working towards that. Over the last few months it’s been a big shift to only work on projects that I feel really called to do, not just things I know I can do. The most important factor was making time and space for those to be the priority, which meant saying no to a lot of other requests.
So now I’m at a point where I am pretty amazed to witness me; the artist and the teacher, wanting and helping others to get even a little taste into the practice which has helped me so much over the last three years.
The artwork above is one that I demonstrate in Inspirit, and it’s a really beautiful reminder of what’s unfolded lately and what I always hope to be reminded of in the days, months and years to come.
