You know what's on the tip of everyone's tongue. I'll guess that you, along with many others around you, have stood up in a room and defended your POV to the point of exhaustion. It's at this time I encourage you to pause, hold onto your thoughts tightly while you ponder what it is you really want for the future.

So tell me, what is that you want?

It's at this point in consciousness that you can wholeheartedly evaluate the options and challenge whatever isn't sitting just right leaving no stone unturned. We don't always have to be swayed into decisions or ideas just because we can't see the solution clearly or because someone has convinced us of a false truth. We have to look beyond the veil of conformity to see the alternative, and we must have the conviction to stand up for that which we truly want.

It's true. 

We are made up of the same molecules in varying configurations. 

And we experience the joy that is this life through our own unique perspectives. No two sets of eyes will ever see the same things in a lifetime. Every experience shapes who we are, what we like, what we have to say. 

My calling as an artist and as a designer is to spark something inside you that moves you to feel something you hadn't felt before, to intrigue you, to affect you in some way. We connect to each other and to the divine through our senses. I want to ignite those senses and, in turn, connect to all of you. 

Thank you all for being part of the Androgyny Design community that I built alongside my husband (and my masculine part), Jerad since it's initial creation in 2012. Blurring the lines between masculinity and femininity was a great segue to the bi...
