The paddies are calling 🌴🌴


I told myself that I wanted to live in another country for minimum a year; but I didn’t know that blessing was about to be Indonesia.

🔸 I clicked on a Facebook ad.
🔸 I bought a one-way ticket.
🔸 I showed up; full of fear but ready to learn.

I co-worked for corporate real estate companies (friedman) & media publishing (crains) in Detroit; forcing myself to stay awake in the Dojo to keep up with the 12 hour time difference of the States. Then I became one with the island, making friends with James & Madira; my Bali life line..traveling thru the jungle to secret beaches and coconut stations. I started to look deeper into myself; and the things reflecting from my appearance. I became holistic; from all pain medications and depressants prescribed for my disease. Coconut delivery and daily massages to kick off the withdrawal feeling. It was a hard, mental game and I knew it wasn’t enough. I quit my corporate jobs, scooped up a three bedroom villa with my savings and started to work full time on my art game. My entire world changed because of MY choices and decisions; these were MY responsibilitiesThank you to Mary & Crate Cafe / Crate Gallery for being my first international art showcase.

You set the standards for me.
