On February 7th, I left Rhode Island to move to California...for a variety of reasons. More than anything else, I was in desperate need of a drastic change in my life. I needed to go searching for a sense of direction. I needed space to focus on myself. I needed new inspiration. My mind is quite a restless one, which is wonderful for my artwork, creative inspiration and drive. However, it does make it difficult for me to stay in one place for very long. And It had been a while since I had done something impulsive, so my brain was starting to go crazy with desire to pack up the car and go.
After spending two weeks on the road with my boyfriend, we landed in the north bay area of San Francisco. All those minor details like jobs, a place to live..... are still in the works...but thats okay with me. I feel incredibly grateful to be able to take a chance like this in my life. Everyday is filled with excitement and anxiety, inspiration and doubt---it really has been a rollercoaster of emotions. I would be lying if I said that there weren't moments I thought what I am doing is crazy, or that it won't work out for me, but I am learning to not listen to those voices and to follow my heart instead.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me thus far, I am excited to share my journey with you. I'll be posting updates on projects, festivals, opportunities and other art related things here. Embrace the unknown y'all.
P.S. Miss you dearly Rhody family and friends
