I’ve been in art classes since I was 8.
Here’s the deal. I’ve done all the things. I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 17 and I’ve sold everything you can think of. Programs, high-end packages, products, memberships, workshops, speaking gigs, and one-off projects.
I even scaled a 6-figure design agency and sold the dreamy 10k packages. It was fun! But it didn’t fill me. It wasn’t fully the Kingdom work I am called to.
I am called to art with a mission.
For too long I believed having the big business was the dream, but I got there and realized it still wasn’t enough.
To top it all off, I let myself burn out on doing things I felt that I “should” be doing and I lost my love for art and design. Cold pitching, getting in group programs, building funnels, selling courses, hosting challenges, you name it, you’ve probably seen it from me.
And I’m here to tell you that it’s not all that and a bag of chips.
Building and scaling a huge business WILL fail you when you’re not in full alignment with your calling and the vision God casts for you.
Trust me, I tried.
And it just made me tired.
As kingdom-bringers we don’t need to hustle our lives away. There’s a better way.
The real work of finding fulfillment isn’t in the results, it’s in the daily steps of obedience and the seeking of beauty right where God has us.
That’s what art and design do for me. And why I always come back to it.
I want to help you find YOUR thing. What you love to do the most out of everything else in the world. I want to help you market your thing well with design that ignites YOU and ENRAPTURES your audience.
(Good design can do that, you know.)
I’ve worked with tons of different types of brands, but my favorites are the ones with a mission. Ones that stand for more than profit, more than sales, and more than scaling-in-the-most-efficient-way-possible-at-the-expense-of-everyones-health-and-happiness.
There is an achievable tension between building an effective brand AND an infectious one.
I want to help you hold that tension.
Through art AND strategy.
Evoking emotion AND connecting humans.
My creative approach, digital or on a canvas, is to find the points of tension within a concept. To tug and pull until it’s tight as a straight line connecting vector points. I work through several iterations (because let’s be real, all life is lived in iterations) and usually end up with a piece that defines your entire vision in one single image.
For me, tension isn’t about balance, but rather, a way to invigorate your audience. To hint at the fact that there’s more to uncover, more to behold, and get them to take action on you.
It’s a way to plant a little bit of longing in their hearts; a yearning to turn the page, to click the link, and to learn more about your vision. Ultimately, it’s about creating brands that stick with your audience for a long time.
