One of the most frequent things I get asked is: ‘How did you build your following?’.

It’s a fair question.  A few years ago I started as everybody does, with pretty much zero support and 5 followers (2 of which were my mother who had signed up twice to make sure she didn’t miss anything).

Today I am a 100% audience-supported artist; I have a blog that is read in 170+ countries by a community of over 15’000 subscribers, and a Twitter following that is sitting somewhere around 66k.

How did this happen?

Butterflies Symbol of Transformation…

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

I loved to discover this Irish Blessing the words are so beautiful to frame my Digital Artwork. The Butterflies Symbolism means a lot in my life that I have a tattoo representing them. I had this tattoo some years ago while going through a very difficult stage of my life were needed transformation and changes.

Butterflies are a wonderful way to connect our Soul with the Nature.
In   the Animals Symbolism they means Transformation and Metamorphosis, their stages of transformation can be related with our life stages and phases. The way we change, and grow through life experiences, being able to renew our inner soul and letting go the old to welcome the new changes. The butterfly metamorphosis can teach us that growth and change, goes together and doesn’t have to be a traumatic passage and experience our constant in life is that we are always evolving and that we have to keep faith to be able to blossom in our final transformation. Butterflies are also associated with freedom, grace, elegance, beauty, transition, expression, growth and more… I just love them and the life lesson they can teach us!
