Mejeur family photo from Cashiers, NC- Thanksgiving 2015
This year has been awe- inspiring, life-changing, incredible… I could go on. I don't even know where to begin to describe it, but I have kept some bullet points to remind me of the milestones, and I just wanted to share them with you as we all look back at 2015. I worked really hard to be able to live off of my own artwork, and I don't think I ever honestly thought it was possible to do full-time, but thanks to you all, here we are! I hope it inspires you to do that thing you always dreamed of in 2016, and to keep living the dream!
In no particular order:
-Painted 27 commissions in 2015 along with several originals like this new favorite.
-Collaborated on 16 shark species with Dr. Gary Rose
-Collaborated with Stream2Sea, Sea2Shore Alliance and Nalu Tribe on a huge, marine debris contest and giveaway through Instagram!
-Collaborated with IS projects on some super cute cloth diapers
-Started selling prints at several new locations and shops including Loggerhead Marine Life Center in Juno, Key West Dive Center, and Island Decor in Tavernier
-Exhibited in 12 art shows including my first west coast art show
-Grew my email newsletter subscribers to 590 people! (You can join too on my home page!)
-Hardcore nested on this nursery to get ready for Cody's arrival
-Gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on March 16th

I am so thankful for all of you, and I sincerely hope that you have an amazing year of your life in 2016!
Happy New Year, my friends!
