Creating my own worlds and stories is one of my biggest passions. There are three things I enjoy most: writing, creating traditional art and making YouTube videos. Each are creative areas that I deeply love ❤
Ever since I was in kindergarten I would write stories and draw pictures to correspond. I did not have many things growing up but I always had pencils and paper. Art was my way of bringing stories in my head to life and escape into a world with limitless possibilities.
I would have been roughly 10 years old when I first watched the anime Sailor Moon. An anime (cartoon) that taught me about the power of love and relationships, with a touch of magic. Then followed other anime: Pokemon, Digimon, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Beyblade etc. I was hooked on anime then on 😀
As many of you know I have been working on my first fantasy novel. It is a story very close to my heart. It stems from stories that I have been writing and drawing characters for since I was 12 years old. I am working extremely hard to get this completed and have it ready for release this year. I will keep you updated with the progress.
Originally, I thought I would publish my stories as manga or in comic form but for the past few years I have felt that novels would be best. That way I can reach many peoples hearts – which is my ultimate goal. I want people to find lessons, love and strength in my books. Spreading love, kindness and opening minds to creativity.
I spoke about the idea of still making a comic or manga, and the feedback was to do both! So I will start out with a mini-version first as a taste and we will go from there. I am currently drawing this and very excited to be able to share it with you.
Stories and art are a great way to connect with others. Art captivates me in a way that is loving but also gets me thinking in ways that I had not previously thought before. As individuals we are constantly changing. No person is the same person that they were last year. Change is needed to evolve to the true you. There is a lot of knowledge to take in. It’s great! 🙂
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a drawing of a green butterfly resting on top of a mushroom. Butterflies are spiritual in many cultures and can represent life – things like hope, change and good luck. We need to open our creative mind and know that we can make the reality we choose to be true.
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Make your passions your life and get out of your comfort zone. It is up to you how you want to live your life. Have a joyful day!
