"Waves are inspiring not because they rise and fall, but because each time they fall they never fail to rise again." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Cheri is exuberant, present, and joyful. She has a contagious positive energy about her and she is an incredible storyteller. I was captivated by her bravery and enthralled by her stories of travel, adversity, and adventure. Her story is especially inspiring as she left a corporate six figure job to pursue her dreams. Her journey has been full of adventures, overcoming obstacles, and risk taking and following her heart has taken her to amazing places.
The beach is Cheri's happy place, so I wanted to capture her in her element. It was incredible to see her come alive as she allowed herself to be in the moment and one with the ocean. She commanded the waves, she created art in the sand, and she meditated by the water. She was playful, present, and free.
Sharing this experience with Cheri influenced me in so many ways. I gained courage through her stories and inspiration through her adventures. Working with her was an incredibly joyful and grounding experience. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to create this beautiful art with her.
