Art & Family

A year and a half ago, my dad passed away. Since then, I have realized that life is just too short to put off doing what you love (I always get sad when I remember that my dad never ended up retiring and doing woodwork), and that life is constantly changing. I’ve also learned the importance of family.

Because of this, I’ve decided to move to Erie, PA, to live near my grandmother – something I’ve always wanted to do, since my family moved to FL when I was 2, and I never got to live near her.

I’ll be doing freelance web development part-time, and the rest of my time will be spent on my true passion, art. I will work on illustrating more books, creating and selling more paintings, and hopefully participating in art fairs and getting my work in small independently owned boutiques! I made an artist page on Facebook, so you can subscribe to it if you want to stay updated on all my art & illustration projects.

I’m so excited to start spending much more time on my two favorite things – art and family!

My last day at Google is this Friday, and I’ll be flying to Pennsylvania in two weeks, on the 6th!

  1. How wonderful and wise to choose the things you really value. I have also found that living close to family (and friends who are as close as family) is very important to me.

  2. Righteous! Very inspiring!
    And congratulations on flying free!
    And an early welcome to Pennsylvania, it’s an awesome place. I’ve never been to Erie, its pretty far, but I bet its sweet.
    I hope it all goes smooth. And keep kicking ass at the art making!
