Leanne Laine is an internationally renowned artist in British Columbia, who has been producing astonishingly beautiful artwork since the beginning of the last recession (and before).
I talked about fascinating people with the intention of finding and introducing them to you. Here’s a fascinating person creating art in the world’s favourite city. Proof positive of how fascination can give us motivation and take us to heights we never dreamed of. Certainly worked for her.
The wine industry seems to lend itself to entrepreneurialism. A winery with personality can outweigh a bank-funded operation. And I know Gen Y’s love that sort of thing.
As fate would have it, Leanne met a divergent point in her life, and had to choose between practicality and passion. She chose her passion 100% and has been amply rewarded ever since. Her husband left his job to support her entrepreneurial enterprise and they’re doing well. And there’s plenty of opportunity to improve.
These are a sampling of her excellent artwork. When I was I was in high school, I abandoned the idea of pursuing a creative career (graphically creative) because I couldn’t grasp the end value. There was no respect for graphic arts in those days, but so nice to see that graphic artists can do well now. Especially with Twitter, blogs and FB.
Graphic images inspire writers, film producers and art lovers. Take a look at her excellent paintings then visit Leanne’s websites and think deeply about how this lesson can be applied to your life. Romance and meaning combined!
