This very special Do What You Love interview is with one of our very own partners – someone who has done what she loves for many years, staying true to herself regardless of whether she is going through times of financial hardship or abundance, sadness or joy.
Flora Bowley is one of the most incredible painters I know, but more than that, she lives her life the way she paints – bravely, intuitively and with a huge smile on her face. Therefore we could not think of anyone more perfect to discuss the theme of bravery than her. Flora has encouraged thousands of people all over the world to embrace their creativity, and one of her most powerful tools is to instill in them the need to be brave.
1. How are you leading a life ‘doing what you love’?
I’m happy to say my days are quite filled with doing what I love. I am passionate about helping people light or re-ignite their creative fire while discovering the transformational powers inherent in the creative process. I am able to reach people in this way through my in-person retreats, online classes and book, Brave Intuitive Painting.
When I’m not teaching, painting or writing, I spend my time biking, practicing yoga, making soup, communing with mossy forests and enjoying my vast creative community here in Portland, OR… all things I LOVE!
