Hello reader! My name is Daniela, I am the artist behind DOTALart and designs.
I recently had the courage to take control of my life and plunge head first into deep waters. Waters only known to the adventurous traveler and the dreamer that dares to live his/her dreams. After what seemed to be an eternity of complaining and whining about work, obligations, sleepless nights, no money, shitty waves, and being nowhere close to living out my dreams, I decided it was time for change. Major change! So I did what was necessary – to follow the road less traveled. I quit my job, left behind a beautiful home by the beach in sunny Florida, and jumped on a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in Bali, Indonesia. I left all of my material possessions, friends, family, and all the comforts that the United States has to offer in search of artistic inspiration, perfect surf, and the opportunity to live in an exotic and foreign country. One month later here I am in Bali living a dream. I’m still broke, still have obligations, and now in need of work. However, I am overwhelmed with happiness because I did the unthinkable and left my comfort zone to live out my dreams of being a working artist, surf perfect waves, and see exactly what this world has to offer.
Words of inspiration to the dreamer who dares to dream, and pursues it against all odds: May the long road you’re about to embark on be a joyous and safe one. For the many lessons and hardships that will come your way, difficult as they are, they will serve their purpose as knowledge for your future teachings. Teachings of which will help others pursue their own personal dreams rather than dreams influenced by society. CHEERS TO YOU – A DREAMER – A COURAGEOUS SPIRIT- AN INSPIRER .
