“Artist Brianna Martray embraces the contrast of light and dark.” 

Brianna Martray decided in her mid-twenties that creating the life she truly wanted, that of a fulltime artist, was a risk worth taking.  As she became successful and demand for her work grew, she realized that one thing needed to change—end her alcohol addiction or die.  

Brianna chose life and began the process of transforming her life breakthrough after breakthrough, one step at a time.  Taking a break from the studio to get sober taught her the power of eliminating negative self-talk and listening to her gut.  She wanted more than anything to realize her full potential as a sober person and as an artist, so she bravely took the path of discovering this new identity. 

Even when we are clear about what we want, we still need to embrace the process of change which involves living with darkness, in other words, embrace the contrast.  Remaining open and aware of opportunities for growth, no matter how painful they may be, is the key to being your most authentic self.  The other key?  Being gentle with yourself throughout the process.  Brianna’s advice is to notice, without judgment, what is negative and gently redirect it to something positive. 

Creativity, in all its forms, is cathartic and can lead to breakthrough.  After all, the purpose of art is the same as life, to share it, while loving others and ourselves deeply.
