The Optimist Story (My Story):
At the beginning of 2019 I was going through a really sad time, I was beginning to lose hope in the world and hence becoming easily annoyed and angry.
I decided I didn’t want to be this way, so I did what I always do and that was to start drawing what I wanted life to look like. The reoccurring theme seemed to be love and optimism. So I kept drawing hearts, I think I must of drawn hundreds, all over magazines and newspapers they kept developing and growing and I began to really start loving them and the process. I loved the effect of the background newsprint, but sometimes the words were wrong.
So I research words of positivity and hope. I went through all the google searches and just kept adding to the list. I stopped watching and reading the news, I decided to create my own newspaper with these words. I wanted my heart to go onto words of love and hope. So I printed collages of these great words and started painting my multi-coloured hearts on top.
I noticed that people started smiling at me in the street and I wondered why, then I realised it was because I was walking round smiling, my mode had changed.
More people started contacting me and wanting paintings. I posted the hearts on my Instagram and I got so many orders for these hearts. I call them ‘The Optimist’ because that is was what I had become.
