IT'S TAKEN me a long time to accept this and I am not certain I have completely accepted it. Some of my fans know that I have had to face serious medical issues these past two years, and because of this I have had to give up (for now at least) my one true love....PHOTOGRAPHY as a business. I love working with children and I truly enjoy taking my time and editing each shot I take. I want nothing but the best for my clients. But my health has left me no choice but to take a break. It's taken time and sweat but I've been on my feet for just a few months now. I have had some wonderful nurses help me gain strength and mobility, and thanks to them I can now enjoy life a bit more. In the healing process there are moments when I have a burst of energy, and in these moments I lose myself in art. These moments have been a huge part of my healing. In these moments I draw whimsical little girls surrounded with messages. They are with me always, encouraging me through the days...reminding me that I will survive this and that I must have faith and hope in life and myself and most of all to be patient with my body. It's been a year of little girls and I have a collection of them..I will never part with them for they are a huge part of me...my heart...my soul, in my happiest and darkest moments.
So... a door has closed -- photography as a business (for now). And a door has opened....teaching art -- more specifically, teaching art via video on how to create My Whimsical Little Girls. I will be doing workshops online once I get a bit stronger, and hopefully be able to take a small class of 4-5 sometime in the near future. But for now I have this to share with you...MY Pumpkin Princess. Let me know what you think :)
Oh, and from time to time you will see some photography go up. I will have surprises for you :)
