Off to Austin
Hey there! Welcome to my art studio and my very first blog post (ahhhh!). I’ve been hard at work for months to finally launch my site — a place where my work will be available online as well as glimpses into my process and behind the scenes tips and tidbits. I’m SO pumped to have this space to share my little slice of the world with you. There are a lot (and I mean, A LOT) of things happening in my life right now — including moving to a new city in a few weeks.
Working on this website launch has helped me to really envision and crystallize what I want the future of my business to look like and I’ve really how much more expansive I want to take this venture. Which led me to a real big freakin’ decision: making the leap and moving to Austin, Texas!
If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be selling my art online and moving to a new city, I would have not “psh, not a chance!” But here I am: manifesting my love for painting and letting that take me where it will.
I truly believe that when you start aligning with your authentic self, things will start to flow into place. That’s not to say there won’t be bumps and trials along the way… but things just start to feel right. It all began for me when I decided going to school to be a nurse practitioner wasn’t the path I wanted for my life any longer. I started reading Gabrielle Bernstein’s book, The Universe Has Your Back, and Lacy Phillip’s The Formula (an incredible manifestation workshop). I started working through my fears and the shadows of self-doubt that had previously plagued me. Once I began confronting myself — digging deep to unleash my real dreams and desires — my art started to take off and magic started to happen. It sounds cheesy but it’s true!
It really hit me that I couldn’t grow my business, challenge myself, or work to make my art better if I was stuck in a comfort zone — no matter how safe and lovely that comfort zone felt. So stay tuned to follow along on my journey… the next time I write a blog post, I’ll be in Austin! Wish me luck!
Bonus: as a celebration of my website launch and my move, I’m offering 10% off all my paintings from now until Monday! Get ‘em while you can.
