On telling your story

To be honest with you I was terrified to tell my story.  With all of the traumatic events happening all over the world, what’s the significance of my journey as an artist and mother trying to find a balance between being creative and being practical?

But that’s just it - that’s exactly the reason why I should tell my story.

We have a tendency to think that we are the only one going through the failures and the anxiety – we end up cropping out the bumps and the bruises and those feelings of isolation.

So even though it can be terrifying to be vulnerable, I know I have to do it. Because more than ever somebody else needs to hear that what they’re experiencing is not happening in isolation. Our stories are more similar now than ever.
