I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t surrounded by children. I am intrigued by their contagious energy, ability to live in the present moment, lack of judgment towards others, and endless zest for life. When I have a child sitting in front of me, anxiously waiting for their face to be painted, we share a special connection. We exchange our creative ideas, playful imagination, and fully appreciate the essence of that moment. Besides, what better canvas to paint than one that smiles back? There is no greater joy in life than spreading love, happiness, and laughter. I am privileged and blessed with the opportunity to touch the lives of thousands of children, with or without a paintbrush.
