My inspiration….

Growing up with an artist for a father I was always surrounded by art. I enjoyed playing around in my dad’s studio as a child, and always loved drawing. As I grew older, and got busier with adult life, I drifted away from that world. After finding out my father was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, I have done a lot of re-evaluating and thinking about what is really important in life.

I realized that I was missing something. I was missing the joy of creating. For the past few months I have been rediscovering how fulfilling it is to create something. I feel I am now on a wonderful journey, and I’m excited to see where it will take me.

I feel it is only fitting to dedicate my first blog post to my father ~ my first art teacher, and my creative inspiration. This painting is one of favourite pieces of his. It’s proudly hanging in my living room.

  1. May your father have a complete and total healing. That is my prayer. My mother is an oil painter and grew up surrounded by art supplies and paintings, like you did. You’re very talented.

    Love,
