My inspiration for today has come from reading other artists blogs and seeing their art.  One of my favorites is Kelly Rae Roberts.  Seeing the journey of how her journaling and working as a counselor combined with her art is fascinating to me.  I have kind of done things in the reverse order.  Working in art freelancing since the beginning of my career, (around a variety of other jobs) it took me years to find my style.  I had a good run with my holiday designs and had many images that were licensed for other uses through the 100+ images I have represented with Illustration Source (This illustration is one in that collection).
Now I want to create new art that combines inspirational messages for recovery, and being lifted up spiritually. That will be the theme in my next body of work-more art from the heart, and my life experience that will have some of those encouraging messages that we all need to anchor ourselves through life’s ups and downs.  The challenge is with my job and school there is so little time right now.  I know I can produce some art this summer though, when I have a break from school. I hope my journey in putting words with my art, and hopefully reigniting my art career in a new direction will just naturally unfold if I just keep putting one foot in front of the other.  I know God will find a way to use and combine  it all…
