The Book Is Here!

The Book and the ProcessKeep Calm And Create On Cover PNG

June 1st is finally here!

After a long two-year process, including conceptualizing, over 15 drafts, intense copy editors, 22 amazing reviewers, designers, and publishing, it is finally here! Not only does this book exemplify my spirit as an artist, it speaks on my road of perseverance and strength.

I wrote Keep Calm and Create On: Words of Encouragement from One Artist to the Next because of my experiences being an artist in a field so saturated with looks and stereotypes over talent and skill. This book is about feeding your creative spirit and balancing your artistic duality.

While the book is complete, I am still early on in my journey. So please if you have not taken the time to like and support us!

Healthy Artist, Happy Artist

Healthy Artist, Happy Artist

Here’s a little tip coming at you:KeepCalm4-web
A Healthy Artist is a Happy Artist.  Being healthy is not just a physical thing. It has so much to do with your mental state of mind. Keeping yourself at bay.

You must take care of yourself. No one else will give you the care you need like you will for yourself. Keep your mind and body in shape.

Let’s be cliché and name some of the quotes and artists that have spoken against the bounds of fear:

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”- Franklin D. Roosevelt

“The mark of fear is not easily removed”- Ernest Gaines

“Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back”-Babe Ruth

     Even the word of the Lord says ‘we are not given the spirit of fear’. But let’s look at the power of fear for one moment. Granted when you think of power, you think of control and possession and automatically fear is a negative. But oh contraire, fear is a tool of master manipulation and if executed properly can be quite the motivator. KeepCalm37

Fear and being scared are one in the same. They both ignite heighten moods, increased swings of anxiety, nausea—I can go on and on. Am I right? But let’s look at that anxiety as …a push. I am petrified to put myself too far out there as a performer because what happens if I am not as good as I think I am? Or as skilled as I thought I was trained to be? What if all of my rejections were “the universe” telling me that this is NOT what I am supposed to be doing?! What if!?

Oh will you look at the “power” of fear! What I am learning to fear is not the possibility of failure but the regret of not seeking out another opportunity. Instead of letting fear keep you away from standing…let it scare you away from sitting. Literally, ‘flip the script’ on fear.
