Kris says, “I want to inspire you to create from your heart, to follow that spark within you- your level of experience does NOT matter. We ALL learn and grow as we travel the pathway of resistance. It is time to embrace your imperfection (I’m a recovering perfectionistJ). It is time to be present and enjoy your journey. Creating art brings me into stillness. In stillness I find myself. I find peace, clarity and connection with my real emotions. I believe art provides many medicines that we can experience on a regular basis if we ‘trust the process.’”
