Meet Claudia from PearTreePond Blog
Hi there, and welcome to PearTreePond Blog, my little corner of the world wide web, where I share my latest art & design projects and inspirations as well as my love for healthy food and a sustainable lifestyle. I'm stoked to see you here! :)
A few quick words about myself: My name is Claudia and I’m the wife to quite possibly the best husband ever and mum of two very active and inquisitive wee kids. Apart from them, I also love plants, gardening, cooking, running, and the three fundamental Cs: cats, coffee and chocolate. 😉
As a former molecular biologist, I’m used to exploring the world through experimentation. Even though I left lab life behind to care for my family, I still feel compelled to conduct experiments of some sort. It’s just that my focus has shifted from science to art, design and a healthy lifestyle. One that sustains our body & soul as well as the beautiful world around us. As unrelated as these topics might seem at first glance, they really are quite connected when you think about it. Watching a caterpillar develop into a magnificent butterfly or marveling at the intricate architecture of a passionfruit flower, it’s easy to argue that nature is the greatest designer. Everything around us is true and tested design that has stood the test of time. And while we don’t have the same timescales or resources at hand that nature uses to perfect her designs, we have one big advantage: our creative mind.
“We are all artists, painting our lives upon the canvas of reality. Mix the colours your own way and apply emotion liberally. Don’t be afraid to let your brush strokes show, and above all else, make sure your art has soul.”
– Christen Rodgers
It’s easy to get stuck in a daily rut and forget one very important thing – you are in fact in charge of creating the best life possible for yourself. Whatever that might mean to you. Nobody else is going to do that for you. Maybe you would love to create art, or write a book or teach yoga – whatever it is that floats your boat, go for it! Paint your life upon the canvas of reality and make it a hell of a painting! Maybe you don’t know exactly what you would like to do. That’s ok too and that’s where the experimentation process starts. See what works for you and what doesn’t.
For me, that dream is working from home, creating art, inspiring others (very modest, I know… ;)). And maybe one day earning enough money doing that, to support my little family and help others do the same for their families. Thus I invite you to follow the creative adventures of PearTreePond and encourage you to create your own. If there is anything that I can help you with, if you would like to connect and/or work with me, or if you have any other inquiries, just contact me to shoot me an email.
