It offers us the drive and inspiration when we need it the most. It can calm our worries, give us encouragement when we’re tired, and restore our inspiration when we’re feeling down.
These are the reasons that I fell in love with the art and decided to present it to the world my way. At my workplace, my co-workers and superiors are extremely supportive. Balancing both of my professions is something that makes me excited and I am very grateful for being able to do it all.”
