Today marks my last week working at the gallery. I will miss my colleagues so much they have truly helped me to gain faith again, positivity, passion for the arts and design and to share my ideas and love of teaching. I’m so grateful to have taught children and teachers across Australia the vast collections and exhibitions at NGV. One chapter of my book completed now. 🙏🏻🦋🌈💫 #grateful#ngv#experience#treasure#teaching#passion#dreams

I have the best sister and closest friend. So lucky to have you to talk and laugh and gossiping, AHA! no one could do it way better than you, don't worry, am good in keeping secret... for 5 minutes 😜 To reminisce our childhood memories and making new one. To encourage and rebuke at the same time because we are Sister-in-Christ, that's our chores, right? 😍 I couldn't ask for a better Kakak, you've been one of my greatest blessings in life. Here is to an excellent health, to gracefully aging, to glowingly wrinkles, to loudly laughing 'til we tinkles 😂 Happiest birthday! 🎂🎉🎊 @hennyh_tawas

Melihat sendiri jalannya akad dan resepsi dari keduanya, sungguh membahagiakan. Sekejap aku jadi teringat, pertama berkenalan dengan @bykardana adalah berkat Alm. @ano_72 yang mana beliau aku anggap sebagai partner kerja yang teramat baik. Dan pada mas Dana aku menganggapnya bagai adik sendiri.
Saat ia mengatakan “mba aku mau menikah.” wah aku senang sekali... Ditambah mempelainya juga seorang wanita yang sungguh luar biasa.
Bismillah, teruntuk keduanya aku amat berharap, semoga saja mereka menjadi keluarga yang Sakinah Mawaddah Warrohmah serta berbahagia selalu dunia-akhirat. Karena aku percaya, Insya Allah mereka dipertemukan oleh suatu alasan dan manfaat yang indah nan penuh berkah. Aku sayang kalian.
Let's be real...being hit by a car... today by Starbucks can sure give you a new Perspective in life. ❤ #1 life is fragile. ❤ #2 you may not have a future so live in the present moment ❤ #3 forgive and move on because you may not get a second chance ❤ #4 Persue your passion ❤ #5 love wholeheartedly #6 make a positive impact in whoever you meet ❤ #7 let go Let God ❤ #8 Be brave ❤ #9 Become the best version of yourself ❤ #10 have fun ❤ #11 Most Important Love Life!!! #gettinghitbyacar#motivation#grateful#blessed#model#actress#singer
Today I’ve been thinking about a lot of things, but what outweighs it all is how grateful I am for a place like the training center. My season there was a huge mixture from amazing to overwhelming- but it will n e v e r be a season I regret. • t h i s c h a p e l •
In this chapel, I fought the call of God.
In this chapel, I’ve heard the voice of God.
In this chapel, I rededicated + surrendered to God.
In this chapel, chains + bondages were broken.
In this chapel, I was envisioned + challenged. • t h i s c h a p e l •
I know that this isn't eternal. Spending the evening with people I don't sit with everyday yet still knowing I belong because these people are my family. Singing songs of praise to the Lord by a mesmerising campfire on the argentinian beach, flames before my eyes and waves behind me. Making ourselves vulnerable while talking about struggles we go through, and knowing we are living the best life. Praying together and realising, yet again, that this life I live is better than anything I could have planned for myself. God is with us and we have so much love for Him. And still, this doesn't compare to the love He has for us. I look forward to the many years of adventures that will follow while following Jesus 🔥🏃🏻♀️🌎🌊🥁📖 #LogosHope#Campfire#Beach#Argentina#MarDelPlata#Sand#MissionaryLife#Adventure#LifeWithGod#TellTheWorld#MarDelPlataArgentina#Grateful#Worship#Testimonies

As the author has already been through the rough patch that you are experiencing now and is ready to share with you the right ingredients to make a great recipe for a wonderful life
I have always wanted to be the student 👩🎓 for life and by reading such amazing books, I am surely a student for life now. You will run out of time but the wisdom of these great books 📖 is timeless, you can apply in any stage of your life
Let me know some of the great books you have already read and share the experience. I am waiting to start a new book and may be you can help me to choose the right one ☝️ 😊

Weekend of footy done 👍
Our weekends are less of R&R and more of running around for everyone's sport - but that's just how we like it 👌
Last week to view my artwork showcased at the @gallerycafechi in Wicker Park; my featured artist residency here ends on August 19th. It’s been such a pleasure working with this small business café that supports local artists. Highly recommend Chi artists to connect with them for their residency. I was able to expose my work to a whole new set of eyes and sell work in a new neighborhood. 😍🙏🏼🖤
Special thank you to @gallerycafechi’s Manager, Eugene. One of the nicest and professional people I’ve met in this space who treats artists with the utmost integrity and respect that they deserve. 🙏🏼

Excerpt from an upcoming interview with @UndergroundChi’s blog. Stay tuned for the full interview. 🖤
I’m often approached by emerging or aspiring artists for advice on how to get started. While I’m still a student myself in this vocation, here’s what I can share from my learnings to-date. 🙏🏼 To romanticize this profession is perilous. Too often do you leave your heart out bleeding on the canvas and you're left feeling exposed and incredibly vulnerable. However, the catharsis and self-love that erupt from this process are well worth it. Like any great profession, this journey demands dedication and hard, hard, HARD work. If you're considering becoming an artist (or have just started this journey), I have two pieces of advice for you. (1) DO NOT COMPARE YOURSELF to established artists (been there, done that). You have no idea how many trials and errors landed them where they are today. They too began their journey just like you did one day. Allow yourself space and time to mature creatively. (2) Don't be misguided into thinking that you have to go in full-time. I began painting to heal myself through my #100VulnerableDays project where I painted 100 small paintings (an hour a day), while I freelanced with over 10 clients for digital marketing. This allowed me to earn a sustainable income and still follow my passion on the side. My "studio" was a corner in my living room and eventually progressed to taking over the basement of my parents' house. So, don't think that you have to start with a studio or a huge financial commitment/freedom. Just start an hour a day. Rest will follow.

H O R I Z O N II
48” x 60”
Acrylics on Canvas
A little backstory on why some of my recent works include “II” (i.e. 2) in the title. I create most of my work on a smaller scale prior to progressing to a larger canvas. A lot of my black and white works from 2015 (like this one) are from my #100VulnerableDays project where I deconstructed vulnerability across 100 days (give or take). HORIZON here (original version painted on paper sized 12” x 12” that will never be available for purchase) was painted on day 82 of 100 from that project. This piece attempted to capture the gift of emotional catharsis and the latitude to evolve philosophically that the project extended me. It is literally amongst the top 3 works I’ve created and I’ve been wanting to paint it on a larger scale forever. Finally got around to doing that for my exhibit last Friday at @FultonMarketKitchen and I’m so incredibly elated that practically everyone who attended the show (which there were a lot of you..thank you!) felt a deep connection to it as they envisioned a part of themselves in the story of this painting. Moments like those make this journey so worthwhile. 🙏🏼
