Fearless

Last December when I read about the upcoming “Fearless” theme for  May/June 2011 issue of Somerset Studio Magazine, my mind immediately turned to one of the creative souls I met through the Silver Bella Art Retreat – artist Natalie Hanson.  Last year Natalie was diagnosed with breast cancer and created a blog, Ta Ta Tales to chronicle her journey.  Through this blog she has shared days good and bad, approaching each obstacle with a fearlessness touched with humor.

This project was inspired by Natalie’s overall positive outlook and her determination to fearlessly face each day’s challenges.  At the Silver Bella 2010 event this past November, Natalie hostessed a very special “Fight Like A Woman” embellished bra swap.  Participants were tasked to create meaningful art bras to honor and inspire our swap partners. The bra featured in the May/June 2011 issue of Somerset Studio is a variation of the one I created for this swap.  I found the experience so uplifting I just had to make another for myself, and truly enjoyed being able to combine my love of vintage clothing, lace, trims and rhinestones to create an inspiring piece of art that speaks directly to my soul.

Women are the caregivers – of their children, their families, and eventually often even their parents.  Throughout we maintain a positive and fearless outlook and meet these challenges head on by remembering to “Live Courageously”.  I hope that this project inspires others to embrace life and be Fearless.  I am truly honored to  be a part of the “Fearless” issue of Somerset Studio magazine.

  • woo hoo! Congrats 🙂 I hope my copy of Somerset Studio doesn’t arrive until after Easter (I’ll probably get it the first week of May) because I have too much to do between now and then! (All chores, art, work, etc kinda stops when there’s a new Somerset mag). Congrats again!

  • Brilliant! Love it! Congrats!

  • Hey Bella! Now I can say I knew you before you were famous~! And congrats on your storefront display piece too. I’ll go get my copy asap. Julie
