It has been a long journey to make this art available to you. It has been a journey from shame to shyness to excitement. For a long time I've seen myself as a poor artist. I just wasn't good enough and didn't believe I could make anything worth while. Once I started to show these whimsical doodles to me friends I was surprised. It has been a joy-filled experience to see the amount of people wanting to own these precious doodles. They are a whimsical icons depicting hope. Small works of ink art to make the world a more beautiful place. To awake wonder and remind us of the more naïve, unspoilt places in our souls.
I have been encouraged by Seth Godin's words in the On Being interview with Krista Tippett. I heard his tell me to have courage to bring what I've made infort of my community and say: "Hey you all! Look at this, I made it!" This is what I am doing. Another voice, that of Brené Brown, has spoken words of encouragement as well. What i've heard from her is: "Have the courage to become visible and therefore vulnerable." This is me taking such a step. Becoming visible as a artist. Stepping out and taking the plunge.
