Inspiring you to lead a more fulfilled life through exploration, creativity, and expression, in art, travel, and food!
I resisted the blogging movement for a long time, but I realized eventually, that one of the things I love so much about my journeys is sharing all the things I’ve seen, experienced and tasted! When my clients or friends come join me on a trip I love showing them what I have grown to love about our destination, and I love exploring new things with them and seeing it through their eyes. So blogger be me!
Traveling and experiencing new cultures and places affect so many areas of my life; my cooking, what I wear, and of course what I create in art. It started when I was 7. My father moved us to Taiwan for a year, within our second week there I had spent a few nights at a Buddhist temple in the mountains.-- Buddha vignettes have been a part of my life ever since. I spent my 16th summer in China without my parents. I learned to ride the bus, shop and eat at the local markets, and even hitchhike on ox carts. I now spend entire afternoons making dumplings (potstickers) and remembering the dumpling restaurants I went to on the crowded side streets of Beijing. After traveling in India, I grew to love the Salwar Kameez, the typical Punjab pantsuit for women.
I am the person my travels made me. And the sum is much greater than the parts. I am a unique composition of Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Venice, Dubrovnik, Australia, Kentucky, Toronto...... The list goes on....you can be sure I'll share my experiences here.
I am an artist, a decorative painter, an art therapist, and an entrepreneur. I love working with people who love to journey as much as I do. I help them feel joy and happiness in their home after exciting journeys. The finishes I do are inspired by the places I travel and the places they travel…India, China, Italy, Mexico…beaches, cities, mountains…
Where is home and where do you like to travel? How does your travel affect you after you return home? What inspires you?
Who am I?
