With the rise of social media I’m noticing an increase in the volume of spectators. And that worries me. Because being a spectator can take you from being highly inspired by others to do your thing, to the opposite side of the spectrum, keeping you stuck at playing a smaller and less inspired role than the one you were initially meant for.

We’re all meant to create, and express ourselves, and shine with our own light.

We all got talents, many talents I’d say.

So being a spectator can leave you only with the illusion that you are indeed part of a creation – somebody else’s creation – when in reality, it might only be filling a void, satisfying only a small portion of the strong urge you have to create something of your own.

So, if you start noticing that the ratio of spectator-vs-creator is going up, I kindly invite you to review the fears that might be preventing you from creating more.

They certainly have not as much power as you would initially think. I promise, once you start being more of a creator and less of a spectator you’ll start being part of a much bigger, much cooler thing.

Where are you on that spectrum? What are you dreaming of creating that you haven’t had the courage to put out into the world?

CONTACT ME FOR A COMMISSION OR PRICE ENQUIRY:

If you'd like to know the availability and price of one of my works, please ask! Or if you'd like to have a custom one-of-a-kind piece created just for you, share your vision with me - no strings attached. You can also book a complimentary online studio tour for a closer look at my work and creative process. I've done it before with my private collectors and it's a very enriching experience on both ends.

10 + 6 =

Please note that, out of respect for my collectors and my own work, I won't (never, ever) create a duplicate of any of my one-of-a-kind pieces. If you'd like to buy one of my unique original artworks but it has already been sold, you can commission a new custom variation on the theme, but no exact copies will ever be issued. - If you're not sure whether a particular artwork has already been sold, feel free to ask.
