The Story Behind My Best-Selling Painting

I believe everything that we experience in life happens for us, not to us. If we allow ourselves to look at life this way, the most challenging experiences can end up being the ones that push us to grow the most - so we can become the people that we are destined to be during our time here on this planet.

I went through this experience back in 2014.

Six years ago, I was experiencing one of the most difficult summers of my life. It felt as if so many aspects of my life were falling apart. My parent’s marriage, my old stories, my sense of stability and certainty were all at their edge for months. And I was honestly trying to figure out how to just feel stable.

During this summer of chaos, there was this one beautiful week where I felt clarity for the first time in months. And this was the time when I went camping along the ocean in Montauk for six days.

And it was such a beautiful, relieving experience. It was the first time I felt free. It was the first time that I could hear that inner voice, that sense of knowing, and intuition that was trying to speak to me, that was trying to get my attention and show me what was actually true in life - what life is truly all about.

And during this beautiful week, I came up with the idea to create the painting that changed my life and my work.

This painting was The Release. And this painting was the first time I allowed myself to create based on who I was as an individual, as a human experiencing life on planet Earth. It was one of the first times that I created work that was a pure extension of who I was, which has led to all of the paintings that I am creating today.

And it was also the first time I allowed myself to take risks in my work and bet on myself, knowing that I was going to be able to figure anything out.

And today, I am so grateful that there are now prints of this painting living in so many homes throughout the States.

So, for the first time, I am sharing the story behind this painting on video and all the beautiful takeaways that I have learned since creating this painting.

So if you would like to see the story behind my best-selling painting, how it came to be, and all the beautiful lessons I’ve learned from this painting and this experience, come join me in this exclusive video here.

And now I would love to hear from you: what one place has transformed your life?

Let me know in the comments.

Here’s to living beautiful, inspiring lives.
