True Colors September 2019 Guest Artist: Laura Horn
Hey there, I’m Laura, An abstract artist from Adelaide, that had a dream and kept chasing it. My first exhibition was even called Dream Chaser! Noticing a theme? I followed my passion and created a beautiful, messy creative life around it. Tapping into my creativity gave me clarity and confidence and it can do this for you too.
It wasn't that long ago, that I was in an office cubicle, wondering if sitting under fluorescent lighting was my lot in life. Deep down I knew it wasn't. I knew there was something else out there for me, but I didn't know what it was.
It was only when I picked up a paintbrush, that I felt a spark!
These days my studio doors are always open letting in the breeze, I can snuggle my furry friends (cat + dog) whenever I want to and when my kids get home from school, I am able to give them what they most want, my time. For me, running a creative business is less about hustle and more about heart. It's about being connected to what you love, making conscious choices as you navigate your day and feeling a deep sense of gratitude and fulfillment.
Nothing lifts me up more than seeing other artists step into their creativity and really come alive. Through my online classes, retreats and podcasts, I help artists to do just that! When I am not painting or dreaming up new ideas, there's a good chance you will find me, hunting for vintage treasure, looking at cat photos on the Internet or trying to keep my house plants alive.
