Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
The past year has been very eventful for me. In fact, since mid-2012, I embarked on a life journey which has taken be unexpected places. Throughout this journey, I lost myself, found myself anew, lost my way and realized ultimately that there was no way to be found; there is only the now, there are only our choices which give our life a semblance of progression. The path is illusory.
During this time, I questioned myself and analyzed my art practice. I had put my drawing and painting on the back seat of my career, focusing instead on web and graphic design, two more lucrative domains which gave me a sense of financial security. Only I wasn't fully happy doing what I was doing; I like design, I always did, but my true passion has always been creative expression which, in my personal experience, flows more freely in painting and drawing. And so I made the choice; whenever available, I would focus more on illustration (and painting) as well as graphic design. Against all odds, I will follow my heart, more consciously than before, and see where it takes me.
Other than that, I got married in February to an amazing man. Just moved to a new place. Enjoying life and doing my best to navigate the catalysts which life throws at me. The usual, you know?
Wishing you all an awesome summer
