Today is seven years to the day that I packed up my entire life into 15 USPS boxes and sent them on a slow boat to an APO address in Germany. I was taking a major chance. There were absolutely no guarantees, but I just new in my heart that I was making the right choice. I left behind my entire life as I knew it, my hometown of 33 years, friends, family, and a beautiful clientele of amazing woman.
Sometimes life surprises you. One day you are just working away as usual and within 5 minutes everything changes. When this divine moment happened to me seven years ago, I just knew it was right. It's impossible to explain to anyone, and I know many people thought I was crazy, but when I know, I know! There have been a few of these moments in my 40 short years where all the stars align and things so simply fall into place. I like to stay open and flexible to all these possibilities that present themselves in my life.
After moving from Germany to Olympia WA to Seattle WA and now settling in Old Town Alexandria VA, I am having one of those divine moments again. The stars have aligned and once more I have made a choice to follow my heart. This time to live a creative life again. Color Me Organically is another dream come true for me. To be able to practice the art of painting again, this time creating beautiful canvases women can wear everyday while working in a space that's all mine.
My most profound inspiration comes when I am able to work in a quiet space and I'm able to listen to my guest without external distractions. I love to work alone, just one guest at a time, easy and relaxed. I have always had a challenge with the chemical exposure of the career I love, and finally I can literally breathe easy and enjoy myself again.
