About

HOW IT WAS

I did my Tour Of Duty of corporate work for two decades. I had a full adult life experience. I had seen and lived a default version of the world. I was successful. I burned out. My soul shrivelled.

I left employment in 2010 to do the same kind of work but as a freelancer. I was relatively successful. I started to burn out again. My soul remained shrivelled.

HOW IT CHANGED

In 2012 my life began to shift when I realised that I am an artist. I have actually been an artist all along, except that I locked it away, because it was foolish and impractical. Also, I believed I was not rich/ pretty/ talented/ connected/ popular/ young enough to be successful. Surely there is no way a life can be restarted in another direction. Not this late. Not with my perceived disadvantages.

But I became an artist, there was no stopping it, and I have come a good long way since 2012. How? Hope, faith, everyday practice, sheer stubbornness, unquenchable passion, labouring to learn what I could, and just making myself make. Forging ahead even when I was afraid and riddled with doubts.

I found my creative style. I found my meaning. I knew what I wanted to do. I knew what I wanted to become.

I want to be an Agent of Hope through my creative work, to bring joy, to trigger a search for meaning, to infuse inspiration and optimism to everyday life, to offer insight and courage for those others who want to restart their own lives into creative ones. I want to make a difference to the inner well-being of people through art and the encouragement of creative practice.
