Thank you for pic DeVine/Focus & RAW: Awakening SF

I had the honour of introducing my first mixed media exhibit at 
RAW: Awakening in San Francisco, on February 26, 2014.
I shared the stage with other visual artists, musicians, photographers, jewellers, fashion designers and art-enthusiasts.
RAW: Natural Born Artist is a community for artists from all disciplines, nationalities and artistic backgrounds to come together in collaborative spaces.
The intention is to showcase their work in a vibrant display of artistic reverence. 
Sound familiar?
PomonaLIFE aims to produce similar experiences that nurture the creative process. 
Sharing a venue,  the excitement, hype and atmosphere with creative passion and determination, celebrates the artistic process as much as encourages it.
Thank you again to the organizers and supporters who helped make 
RAW: Awakening a very special event.

As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right.

Live your truth and redefine 2014

I'm starting the believe that our experiences are nothing but a series of gifts and the less we resist them, the better things get. Through the joy, though the pain, through the growth, life is beautiful.  I live in a time when I can share my truth across the world with people I will never meet. With the hope that in some way, it creates beauty in their lives. What an amazing gift to me.
