If you have followed me anywhere for any amount of time, you have seen me shift gears. Probably more than once. I’m really good at it.
And here I go again!
I try not to look back when the road ahead seams uncertain, so as I charge forward, I hope you will come along.
It’s time to write a book.
Weird, I know. Not what you thought I was gonna say, huh?
Well, at the beginning of the year, when I felt like I needed to close down my business doors and focus on 3 main things: homeschooling my kids, my health and practicing my art, it all felt like I had given up on what I wanted. But now I’ve done those things, and I feel like I’m in a good place with those three things.
And on top of that, I don’t have the pressure of a business weighing me down and forcing me to make art. I am free to practice what I want to practice.
So amidst homeschool, and trying to be healthy, my practice for the time being (and the unforeseeable future) is writing and illustrating a novel. I’ve always wanted to and now seems like a pretty good time. And it also helps urge me on that my 8-year-old is obsessed with reading right now.
The story is an adventure story full of magic, wonder, deception, finding confidence, and learning to trust in others and yourself.
I’m very excited about this new phase of my art-making life!
