    thebiginterview

    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!

    thebiginterview

    I have the great pleasure of introducing you to a good friend of ours who we met whilst travelling in Japan last year. Asher is another example of someone who has reassessed what he wanted from life and has started out on his own to satisfy those deep yearnings that just don’t go away otherwise.

    My name is Asher Freeman and I am a jewellery designer/maker from New Zealand.  I have been in the jewellery industry for about 10 years and have just made the big move in starting my own company, Freeman Jewellery Design. I believe strongly in being ethical on all levels – from the integrity of the design and make of the piece, to the materials used being ethically supplied.

    1. How are you leading a life ‘doing what you love’?

    By being honest to my inspirations, ideals and dreams.

    2. What did you do before this?

    Before starting Freeman Jewellery Design, I worked for a high market boutique jewellery store in Auckland, New Zealand, for about 7 years. It was the perfect introduction and training ground for getting deeper into jewellery design and make after completing a 3 year Diploma with High Distinction at The Peter Minturn Goldsmith School.

    Amelia Critchlow is a Visual Artist living and working in London. In this interview she shares an insight into how doing what you love is a requirement of the soul. The journey there however is not always easy.

    Completing an MA in Fine Art in 2012 I’ve since opened & co-direct ArtLacuna Space in South London. My work encompasses collage, mixed media, photography and moving image.

    1. How are you leading a life ‘doing what you love’?

    By leading a life filled with art: making and exhibiting my own art, co-directing a gallery/project space and collective art studios in South London (artlacuna), and running the experimental art e-course + other teaching. When looking back at my childhood the one thing I loved doing was making and art-ing, whether it be model-making, drawing, painting, illustrating or simply creating something out of materials, I was most happy. It’s a whisper and a desire that has never really gone away and I feel both happy and grateful to be able to make this a part of my adult life-career.

    thebiginterview

    We can train, we can strive to better ourselves and we can even achieve success but unless we listen to our inner self we will never truly be ‘doing what we love’. Today’s interview will inspire you to look out for those moments of epiphany and listen to your heart.

    1. How are you leading a life ‘doing what you love’?

    Before I became a model and TV host I actually studied art and textile design. I grew up surrounded by art and attended gallery openings since I was a baby, as my father was an artist. Since his sad death, my life has come full circle and I have returned to what I originally loved and have always wanted to do. I love fashion and design and the creativity of my life. I am extremely grateful that I am able to do this and mean to excel!
