I couldn't see it at the time but 2014 was a huge wake-up call about putting other people's needs before my own and playing small. When I selected Warrior as my theme for 2015, I knew this year would be about stepping into my own power no matter how uncomfortable it made me.

When I walked out of the CLICK! Retreat on February 3rd, after spending 3 days with Christine Kane, I had a whole new vision for my life. A vision which included re-joining the Platinum Mastermind program... launching a new private consulting program, Marketing Kaizen... and deleting all of my online dating profiles. And as always happens when a clear intention is set, changes are happening and new opportunities are starting to arrive.

I'll be teaching my new workshop, Art Business Kickstart: Tips & Techniques for Succeeding in the Changing Art World, at TransCultural Exchange's 2016 Conference on International Opportunities in the Arts: Expanding Worlds, as well as offering Portfolio Reviews. I'll also have a limited number of private consulting sessions available during the Conference.

There's been so much going on that I haven't spent much time in the studio over the past few months. But the Soul Ancestors are finding their audience with several commissions coming in this month. I'm finding that people interact with the Soul Ancestors on a very deep, personal level and they're interested in having Soul Ancestors that represent their individual lives and history.

Other changes are underway also... a transition to an Ayurvedic lifestyle (diet, meditation, yoga), an image makeover, and a new focus in my volunteer work with the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe.
