Expressing Your Creativity Is An Act Of Self-Love

I launched Twinki-Winki to create a brand of wearable art and feel-good fashion accessories that encourages inspired rebel living. That’s the philosophy behind all Twinki-Winki products. The goal is to bring ease into your day-to-day so you can feel fab whenever you want.

Twinki-Winki wants you to feel loved, appreciated, inspired, happy, and fabulous.

Of course, at the time I could only imagine how wonderful my future customers were going to be. Over the past year, I’ve had the good fortune to see that my Twinki-Winki customers are truly the lovely people I imagined. But not only that, they are an inspiration to me.

Reflecting beauty.
When I think of my Twinki-Winki customers and how they inspire me, I immediately want to reflect back to them how beautiful they are.

Truth is, I don’t think we see our own beauty most of the time.

We need others to reflect back to us the qualities we desire to possess. That’s how we realize that those desires are already a part of us. We already are who we want to be.

We’re just continually catching up with our expanding selves.

When you’re expressing your creativity, you’re simply sharing your enthusiasm for life.

if it’s true
each of us
holds up
a mirror
for others
to see themselves

but we spend
most of our lives
to recognize ourselves
my life’s purpose
has never seemed so clear:

I wish to be
the mirror
in which you can see
how truly beautiful
you are

Express your creativity.
Pay attention to the art in your life. Especially the art in your home and your closet. Because what you surround yourself with and what you wear influences your mood. There’s art you can see, smell, hear, watch, read, touch, taste, and wear. Think about the movies you watch, the music you listen to, the books you read, the clothes you wear, the perfumes you love, or even the food you eat.
Find art in those things that you appreciate for their beauty and their emotional power.

Find art that makes you feel good to be you.

Let it delight your senses and lift your spirit. And then milk it for all it’s worth by making it part of your daily life.

Fill your life with art and the joy will follow.

By making feel-good art, I get to share my joy with you.

That’s why you’ll always find me making vibrant and cheerful art that I can turn into playful prints for my fashion accessories and home decor products.

And then you can share your love for life through vibrant products that let you express yourself. Smile.

And what I know to be true after 20-plus years of art-making is that expressing your creativity is an act of self-love.     

“When we are creative we express the joy of being alive.”
