I'm on a Mission

When I hear the words "mission statement" I typically get a vision of a group of people sitting in a conference room hearing from the higher ups what the vision of their company is and what they must do to get there.  I never thought that I--as a person, and as an artist--"need" a mission statement as well.  My eyes were opened to realize if I want a certain kind of life and to practice a certain kind of living, I do need a mission to stay on track and not just let life happen to me.  When I get discouraged or get off track, it's good to have my vision in front of me (figuratively speaking) to make sure I'm doing things that align with this vision of my present and my future.

Through the artwork I create and in daily life I aim to:
  • bring joy to people through color, vibrance and uplifting images and words
  • encourage and inspire girls and women to believe in themselves
  • show that dreams matter and ARE important
  • help you show those you love that you are blessed and thankful to have them in your life
  • show girls and women that they are stronger than they think
  • let girls know that it's okay to be different, to be unique - being true to yourself is of utmost importance if you're going to live a truly joyful, fulfilling life

I hope that through my actions and my creations, this vision shows and I hope that it reaches others.  Thanks for supporting me and my vision.


  1. I guess as artists we forget about things like that. Thanks for the imortant and positive reminder. :)

    1. Yep--I think often I just want to paint, but I'm realizing I need to keep my mission in mind especially when I'm stuck on what to create. It is actually helping me to remind myself while I'm painting! Thanks for stopping by, Cheryl.
