I am most proud of the fact that I actually took a step forward and made a decision to take this course without consulting anyone else’s opinion because I know I would have been talked out of it and would’ve ended up very resentful and stuck. I enjoyed every minute because it was something I did for me and me alone.


I think the biggest shift is in my attitude. I now feel like having an artful future is attainable. I’ve gained more courage to move forward with my art, and am more confident in how to go about finding my own unique voice.


(I know) that whatever my style is, that it’s unique and worthy of sharing with the world as my own personal contribution as a human being on this crazy planet. Kellie just has a way of filling you with courage and enthusiasm.
