when it all began

Creation, team work, joy & celebration

When I was just a wee 4-year-old, my mom bundled me up in a thick fur coat, a fur hat, and wool blankets, and pulled me on a sled through the snowy streets to my very first drawing class. As I sat there, snowflakes falling onto my eyelashes and obscuring my vision, passer-by's transformed into a surreal and eerie shapes. I was unsure what to expect from this class. When we arrived at the teacher's apartment, to my pleasant surprise, a scent of freshly baked cake filled my nose. Other children sat around a table, welcoming me with big smiles, and to my delight, the whole class was about decorating cakes and enjoying a lovely tea time together. It was in that moment, surrounded by other kids, with us decorating the cake, I knew what life is about: creation, team work, joy and celebration. As we discussed which colourful sprinkles and creams to use, an empty surface transformed into something wildly and beautifully otherworldly. Creating something out of nothing, watching our ideas come to life, and sharing the experience with others was pure magic to me. On the way home, I looked out at the snowy white panorama through a different lens – an endless world, and a life full of possibilities to create.This is the joy I want to share with you. Every new project, each new collaboration is an opportunity for magic and celebration 😋
