Ultimately, what truly inspired me was the psychology of an artist, their contributions to society and the business side of the industry. I chose to give back to the artistic community as a thought leader and life/business coach, in a niche I was once part of and knew so well.
I feel higher levels of understanding on my creative purpose. I am truly living “inspired.” That is what art does to the honest, brave and self-aware person. It allows people to reach into the innermost core of who they are as creative beings.
At your most deepest core, you are a creative being because you were created by an introspective universe that wanted to explore the meaning of the world through you.
“I am creative because I was created. It is my natural state to receive inspiration from it all, then to inspire others with my art. When I do this, I know I am continuously supporting the process of creation and living inspirationally.”
When I was a child, my big requests every Christmas were crayons, colored pencils and blank drawing pads. I had the mind of an artist even back then. For me, seeing the endless colors all displayed like rainbow-hued candy inspired my young creative mind and helped me express myself as I drew the world around me.
With each passing year, I experimented with different forms of art while observing the world’s interaction and connection with the creative part of society, not really sure where it would all lead.
My love for the arts started with drawing, then moved unto devouring hundreds of books, soon enough a fascination for writing grew within me. My interest then turned to poetry, which led me to create over 80 poems in my teens.
Finally, when I was 16 years old, I became obsessed with acting and theater of which I truly fell in love and felt creatively free. I received classical acting training through various scholarships and pursued acting on and off for 10 years. That led to teaching within the arts. I trained about 1,000 young girls about the acting & modeling industry. I wrote a book on the music industry. Explored Art Basel as press twice scouting 100 artists globally, scouted 100 + ReverbNation winners for publicity and interviews, and hosted my own events in 3 cities!
