- I spend a lot of my time investing in myself, regardless of where I'm at in life. It doesn't matter what day job I work, which projects I focus my time on, what role I am labeled to play, or however people choose to see me through their respective lenses.
I know my own value and even if people don't recognize or understand my vision, my irrepressible commitment to my craft is what has set me free. I am not held back by numbers or opinions and thus my value is intrinsic by nature. Maybe few people know my name, respect my work or believe in my abilities or potential at this moment in time, but that's okay with me.
I'm not waiting around for someone to notice or save me. I'm going to make it happen regardless of how steep the climb, no matter the setbacks that I encounter or the naysayers that attempt to bring me down to their level. I promised myself to be true to the work and that's the only thing I'm truly certain of.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy watching my process unfold because one day, I won't be living at home with my parents working a restaurant job and hustling on the side. One day, I'll be flying all around the world, making art, selling art, and sharing the process to pave the way for the next generation of talented artists and creatives. I'm enjoying the ride and I'm so grateful to everyone who has encouraged and been kind to me on this journey. My best work is still ahead of me, so I can only imagine what is to become of my life. Maybe one day, I'll make something more beautiful than anyone dared dream of. -

Can you believe Christmas is almost here? The weather is starting to feel like winter too. We just had our first fire in the fireplace and started our annual tradition: watching my extensive collection of “A Christmas Carol”. Such a wonderful story of redemption. Last night it was Patrick Stewart; tonight it’s the Albert Finney version. Love ‘em all!

👊🏼 #makeithappen - We met Benedicte de Montlaur in Paris, and it was a true pleasure to talk with her about her career. Benedicte is the Cultural Conselor of the French Embassy in the United States ! Check the link in bio 🔝
After we make it through the darkness and let go of beliefs that no longer serve us, we have the space and time to grow and become wiser. This inner wisdom we gain ... this ability to be quiet and to listen to our own intuition is hard won, and we must nurture it like the treasure it is.

💡 Non-descript hotel art? We would never! These screenprinted murals grace the walls of each of the @hgiboulder’s 172 guest rooms. Keeping true to the location’s Boulder roots, CU Boulder MFA in Painting candidate and artist Johnny Defeo created the murals for the project. 📸: @johnnycakesdefeo
