all the feels seeing my clients print photographs from their sessions and loving them in their own spaces at home ✨ also so rad seeing them in designs by @jandjdesigngroup ! what a beautiful home you have Mr. & Mrs. Westfall!

Thumbnail sketches for my next piece 😍 I think tonight I'm going to try and shoot some still life photos with my own makeup products with the hopes of having something to display in my makeup area at the new apartment! .
Side note....I have been listening to others and what they like to do for personal development and I couldn't help but wonder....does creating art count? Seriously! .
I mean lately when I've been stressed or overwhelmed with life, etc. there is one thing that consistently brings me back down to a calm state and helps me focus....art! .
Art has been such a soothing experience for me, and I do feel like I improve as a whole -not just artistically- with every project I do. For example, my self portrait I did recently. I felt a new found confidence when drawing myself, and I haven't felt that way in a long time. I would not have even attempted to draw myself a few months ago! The portrait turned out great and it shows just how far I've come these past few months. (Thanks healthy lifestyle and weight loss!). More importantly, I have to re-learn the importance of patience, attention to detail, focus, letting go, problem solving, working with what you got, accepting constructive criticism (the list goes on and on) with each new piece. .
Art is my anti-depressant....my anti- anxiety....my happy place. 🤗 I am so grateful to have art in my life both as a career and a hobby, and that I can share it with you all.
