In less than a year, she began fully thriving as a real artist, has been in 5 galleries and has an upcoming show. (plus more!) Hear her story of how she overcame her limiting beliefs and began thriving as an Artist in this vulnerable and brave interview …
Her instructors were unintentionally steering her towards their aesthetic, and she wanted to express her own voice.
After retiring from a career in Education and being diagnosed with a mood disorder, Laurie felt adrift and believed that her voice would be “flat” from her medication.
“For art to be a spinning wheel and not gaining any traction was frustrating.”
Laurie and I met last June and she began to learn a structure for her art, and embrace a morning routine and gratitude practice. She began to regain her sense of belief in herself and how she deserved to express herself.
Her intentional healthy habits and newly gained painting structure helped her get to know her “new” normal. Her art voice began to develop and she began to paint freely again.
“You don’t have to be lost after retirement, you can have a whole new life.”
Now she’s enjoying painting in layers and incorporating words and quotes that she loves into her paintings.
Laurie credits her dedication to taking risks and taking action to where she is now.
“I believe that if you just take action, if you make a decision and you move forward with it, you are either seizing the opportunities or you are manifesting them – and somehow the opportunities fall into place.”
Enjoy this interview and find inspiration for your OWN art!
