When it comes down to it, I am just a girl with a passion and a mission:
Art and moving to Italy.
As soon as the 25 old canvases are repainted, it’s time to pack a bag and buy a one-way ticket.
Other than that, I’m an artist that loves to color outside of the lines and considers straight lines overrated. I thrive on the feeling of putting on my red backpack and sandals, with no plans except to explore a new place. I want to see the world, but in the process got a little bit (va bene, molto) hooked on Italy. And while this kind of hinders those worldly vagabond dreams, I do not mind in the least. When it’s time to move on again, it’ll be time to move on again. I want to live in the moment, not lingering on the past or expecting anything from the future. I want to taste new flavors and see new colors and learn new languages and share new memories with others. I want to fill up a dozen more moleskin notebooks and have enough stock pictures to last me a lifetime.
When I am not at school (which consists of every Italian course I could sneak into) or at work (which consists of being a charming waitress at a cozy European bistro and wandering around backstage at Texas Performing Arts), and not working on 25 Canvases…- wait, is there any time actually left? Huh. If so, I spend it taking long walks around Austin, playing with food, enjoying wine, plucking strings and calling it music, and daydreaming about the next adventure.
Perché abbiamo tutta la vita davanti.
