I was born legally blind and remain so as an adult. My vision is just under what is required to be able to drive (a.k.a. really blurry). You can read my whole story abut this here. It is something that has certainly shaped me but hasn’t defined me. In fact, I am an artist. I studied and practiced traditional art all through school and loved it. When I graduated high school, I realized that selling art put so much pressure on something that I was so passionate about that it was starting to lose its charm. So I went to college and studied my other passion, psychology, instead. Right before I graduated with my Bachelor’s, we went into recession and jobs became more scarce. Once it recovered, it became almost mandatory to have a master’s degree in order to get any job in the field of psychology. I didn’t know what to do. I worked a few part time jobs while selling some art and DIYs on the side. Over the years, it became obvious to me that though selling art full time may take away the magic for me, working in a way that let me express my creativity didn’t. I have also realized how much I love to share this creativity with other people and how receptive they are to seeing it. I started this blog as a place to share my creativity, tell my story, and to inspire others.
The Purpose of This Blog
All Things Creative centers around creativity in all aspects of life. I believe that our individuality is shown through the way that we express ourselves in our own creative way. In addition to telling my story, I like to give my readers tips, ideas, how-tos, and insipration for enriching their own lives. I have learned so much throughout the years of pursuing art and creativity. I have a lot to share with my readers and they love learning it. Through my writing, I try to emphasize the beauty in simplicity, authenticity, and the importance of expressing oneself through all things creative.
I hope that all of my readers find inspiration from this blog. Be sure to connect with me on social media!
