I have to tell you something. I’m in love with professional trouble-makers. Not the hooligan kind that disturbs and disrupts maliciously, solely for their own entertainment. No, I’m talking about the good guys, the rebels leading with kick-ass kindness who are changing the game for the rest of us…Continue reading “WHY I LOVE PROFESSIONAL TROUBLE-MAKERS…”

…AND YOU GET TO CHOOSE THE COLOURS.
The shading is up to you, the marks you leave are your legacy so what are you going to do with it? We don’t need to be artists to create a work of art. We don’t need to label ourselves creative in order to pick up the paintbrush.
