My design journey started exactly where I expect all of my artistic adventures to begin…with ‘Butterflies in My Stomach’..that jittery hunger of creativity that is essential to all creative people as a prelude. The kind that keeps you up at night.
In art, as in life, there will be darkness, there will be doubters, there will be self-perceived barriers created by your own mind. There will also be the true colour of happiness that freedom brings if, like the butterfly, you have the courage to change.
Change is the essence of life.
Nothing symbolises this more perfectly than the existence of the butterfly.
There are not years or even months in a butterfly’s life, only moments.
As if to remind us to spend our own given moments treading lightly upon the planet with a readiness to surrender what we are, for what we could become, seeking opportunities to create beautiful differences wherever we travel and releasing the fear to fly regardless of what the caterpillars may say.
As my own design journey comes to an end, it is my hope that, in wearing my design, your journey continues to flow with Courageous Freedom.
Become the Butterfly.
