Quote: “We may not like the gift wrapping, but there is always a gift.” I believe that each opportunity that arrives at my door, does so for a purpose. Whether I succeed or not, it will teach me something which will prepare me for my next opportunity. I am a firm believer that everything, absolutely everything happens for a reason. Wrapped within any challenging situation lies the precious gift of a life lesson. When I stop to evaluate what is happening, I can usually decipher what the Universe is teaching me. It may not be obvious at times and I may struggle to comprehend what is unfolding but the search I have discovered is always worth it. Read more>>

“Commitment is healthiest when it is not without doubt, but in spite of it.” Rollo May It means that truth is a never dying process, we are always seeking to go one step further, to dig deeper, to fail and get back up and try try again. It means we can be fully committed to something and be okay if at the same moment we also have doubts. It doesn’t mean we are any less determined, in fact, it might make us more determined. To push the boundaries of the possible. Read more>>

“Life isn’t happening to you; Life is responding to you” I love this quote because it reminds me that I’m really in control and that I am the captain of my own ship. We often think things are happening to us and that we have no say. And sure, on the surface, that’s true. However, what’s more important is how we conduct ourselves before, during, and after these things happen—good or bad. If we can maintain a healthy sense of awareness, positivity and accountability, you will attract mostly positive things. I believe in the powers of the universe. Powers such as manifestation, karma, etc. Events that present as serendipitous, to me, are no accident. I grew up as a Pentecostal Christian. My great-grandfather was a pastor and owned a church in East Los Angeles. I believe in God. Read more>>

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.” – Joseph Campbell Following your bliss to me means having the courage to pursue your passion without letting the fear of failure hold you back. You were born on this planet for a reason and that reason is to uncover your passion and share you gifts with the world. When you have done that, you have found your purpose, and living your purpose is the only way to lead a truly fulfilling life. In addition, you ultimately help others do the same thing by leading by example. I have relied on this quote multiple times in my life to help me face challenges or to keep going even when I felt like giving up. Read more>>

“Committing to a dream is not a one time occurrence. It must be done daily, hourly, continually. We must choose to commit to our choice, over and over.” Whether it is painting, learning something new with each piece of art that I create, or figuring how to tie an seemingly unrelated project into the dream — they are all puzzle pieces that make the whole. I love looking for unexpected possibilities that move the dream along. Sometime the puzzle pieces sit and ferment in the back of my mind until their time is right and they explode with a colorful energy. I am also committed to marketing my dream whether by giving back to the creative community through teaching and my art books, helping my galleries promote my work, or just being ready for success when it comes.
