We all have stories to tell. Interesting, unique and ever-evolving ones too. I’m gradually learning how to tell my story better on here, and what exactly I want to say. It’s a work in progress. But sometimes someone else has a way with words that can tell your story better than you ever imagined.
Such is the case with the interview I did for A Sunny Space. The author, Eunique, and I had two long, in-depth phone interviews, talking about my art, work, and journey. And well, let’s just say I first read it while sitting in a coffee shop in Costa Rica and started crying. The good tears.
My art is something where I am my own worst and harshest critic, so I rarely talk about it in depth. But then, it’s also something that’s been a huge part of my life ever since I was a kid. The times in my life when I wasn’t painting and creating were some of those times when I looked back and can definitely say I was lost. Sign of a calling, perhaps? Or side effects of a passion. Who knows.
While I still have a long way to go as an artist, and honestly feel like I am just now back to where I was before I took a decade-long hiatus, it was almost surreal to read how beautifully Eunique talked about my journey.
So, if you have a few minutes, go give the story a read. It’s a special one.
Thanks to A Sunny Space for such a beautiful feature, I really am not worthy to be among such badasses, but totally will relish in the compliment.
