I am not even going to attempt to describe to you how bright my past few weeks have been. I may blind you.
A new light in my life-- Stacie May Schatz.
She is a button (as cute as) the kind of button you want to show off. Not the button you would hide behind a bow tie. Definitely not the button that you would tuck into your pants. She's the button straight across from your heart. The kind of button you want to show off...
Stacie is a painter, an artist.
Stacie is a splash of color.
Stacie is a smart, vibrant, bold, beautiful individual.
Her paintings are a reflection of all of these amazing little piece's of who she is.
Stacie and I met for the first time on Sunday March 4th. Emails had been tossed back and forth for a few weeks, following with a few text messages. She made mention that she had come across my photography through a work friend, that she was also an artist, and if I was interested, a collaboration. I checked out her website www.schatzart.com and was blown away!!! I felt super confident in a collabe. So a business meeting of sorts was planned, coffees at the broadway roast. After only a few minutes of chatting in real life, I could feel a perma smile growing on my face.
Stacie and I are very alike. We are both at a place in our lives where we are extremely passionate about creating.
Creating. Creating. Creating. Over and over. It's inevitable. We won't. We can't stop.
Our first meet came to an end, plans to shoot for the following weekend were made. Funny enough we ended up getting together a few more times before we got down to business. We were both mega stoked on a new found friend. It has only been a few weeks since our first meet, and I feel like I have known Stacie for years. She is the exact friend I search for and want in my life. I find it very refreshing to meet someone who is as passionate as I am about creating and growing as a Saskatoon artist. Stacie said it SO right the other day. "As an Artist, it is easy to kind of fall off, it is important to have a network of support. Be connected. Go with the flux of your niche."
So here I am today blogging, sharing with you -- what happens when passionate painter, meets passionate photographer.
