HOW THIS CHALLENGE CAME TO BE!

This photo is from the first time I've ever created with nature and it was an experience of a lifetime! Since that transformative experience, my journey of creative exploration has been full of unforgettable moments and unexpected adventures.

From playful encounters with mischievous ducks stealing my paddleboard to the awe-inspiring spectacle of snorkeling alongside graceful devil rays, each experience has created a story and inspiration of discovery. Whether it's painting amidst the gentle laughter of dolphins or sketching beneath the vast expanse of the sky.

I've come to believe that there's an inherent magic in creating within the embrace of nature—a magic that inspires everyone to unlock their own creative potential amidst the wonders of the great outdoors.
