2020 Year Review

I experienced so much learning and personal growth in 2020. It was a year for diving deep into my soul and really discovering my purpose and passion.

At the beginning of the year, I was a full time 3D character design and animation student; still feeling the deep loss of my mom’s death the year before. Covid-19 happened and I finished the final months of my course online.

My intention was to seek 9 to 5 employment but then I decided to return to creating fine art and make it a full time business instead. Maybe it sounds a little crazy but I wanted to follow my passion.

I’m grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met this year. Movers and shakers and dreamers who want to make this world a better place.

And I learned to scuba dive this summer. The pandemic and the loss of a loved one makes you realize that life is so short and you need to really experience everything your heart desires.

At the end of this year, I enrolled in a 200 hour yoga teacher training program which has been quite the life changing experience so far. As the year comes to a close, my heart is full of joy. 2021 is going to be amazing!

Joy and adventure,
Ann-Marie

Here’s a painting exercise that anyone can do.

1. Paint a circle with any type of paint. I was using acrylic paint for this.

2. Let that dry.

3. Start by making a dot in the centre. Draw counter clockwise as evenly spaced as possible. I used a gold paint marker pan.

This is an excellent way to relax and meditate.
