Happy Friday, sweet friends!
Since there's a been a few new lovely humans joining me on here, I wanted to do a quick #fridayintroductions
and share a few things about me.
But above all else, I just want to thank you for being here and your support and encouragement means the WORLD to me! 📸@monarebecca
My real/legal name is Olesea, but I go by Volta because it's easier to pronounce/spell. I actually used to sign all my artwork with "Volta" in high school, and so when I moved to Dallas I decided to fully embrace the transition and go by Volta (I think, subconsciously I was just preparing myself for my art career even back then when I had to do "the right" things like get a corporate job or get another degree.) Oh and to explain the unusual name - I'm originally from Moldova, a small country in Eastern Europe.
In Dallas, I live with with my super amazing and supportive husband Dan, and a bratty but sweet cat Sal.
My background is in digital marketing and I do part-time freelancing work for a company. The rest of my time I pour into Color Snack. And while I work all the time (what are weekends, even?) and I often feel discouraged/disappointed/unsure it still has been one of the best and fulfilling journeys of my life.
I share all this to encourage you to follow your dreams. Even if it means taking one small step today and maybe another tomorrow. It doesn't matter how small or how long it takes: what matters is that you're moving in the direction of being your true self. Life's too short to try to be someone else.
What about you? tell me something interesting about you and if you're new here, introduce yourself! I love getting to know you guys!
