New Year. New Vision.
I'm so excited to share my vision for the new year with you! 2017 was a whirlwind, to put it mildly. I spent the last year planning my wedding, working, getting settled into married life, and exploring new creative ventures. But now that the dust is beginning to settle, I'm back and bursting with new vision and anticipation for what's ahead!
If you've been following me for long, you probably mostly know me as an oil painter. If you’ve just start following me, you might know me primarily as a photographer, and have no idea that I paint, or do anything else for that matter.
I do a little bit of a lot of things… and I’m learning to embrace that. I used to think that I needed to narrow it down to one thing and be really good at that one thing. But now I’m realizing that thinking like this is only going to keep me back. I was created to be multi-faceted. All the things that I love and do don’t seem to fit into one nice, neat box. But they also don’t seem to be as scattered as they used to. They seem to slowly be converging and aligning in their diversity.
I love that my job is literally to be creative. And it looks different all the time. Whether it’s being a creative director, or running a photography + video business with my husband, or a being a product stylist, painter, or a writer… I just get to create beautiful things and tell stories along the way.
If I had to sum it all up, I think it would be this: I love to create, chase after, and capture beauty. I love telling stories and creating beauty through a plethora of different mediums - whether through the written word, or photography, or with a paintbrush, or even through a carefully prepared meal.
So this year I'm heading in a bit of a new direction. I'm going to be focusing heavily on writing. My goal is to invite you into my creative process and to provide you with tips, tricks, and advice on all kinds of topics ranging from creativity, to hosting, to my favorite recipes and rituals, to highlighting people and businesses that I love.
I hope you’ll join me on the journey! Sign up for my email list to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
