About Kelly Schwark:
I am not my resume. I am not a school, nor a region of the country; I am not awards given to my work by others. I am not bound to a title, except for the ones that I have chosen for myself:
Artist, Writer and most importantly, Mom.
I am an observer of nature, a student of life, a teacher of Faith, and a caring individual. I am understanding, forgiving, kind (hopefully); I am just a person that, one day, hopes to be able to share my vision of the love that surrounds each of us. In the mundane things, to moments that seem larger than life- love is there. Whether in my writing, art or photography, I choose my messages to be of love. That is who I am. The rest just falls to labeling, and I am more than that.
The world is full of chatter. Sometimes it circles around the goodness that occurs every day, but often, the loudest, most attention-grabbing chatter is focused on the negative, the aggressive, or the messages that keep people down. Let’s change that, shall we?
- to lift people up
- to encourage connectivity within our community and beyond
- to share positive messages through my photography, art, and written words
- to offer a place of faith, hope, and love
We all need a safe place to uplift our spirits and to help us see the abundance of good that still exists when we are mindful of where we focus. Every organization, every small business or up and coming restaurant, and every person has a story. Within those stories are countless ways for us to become educated, inspired and connected to one another.
The stories that I share here are the ones that I want to leave for my daughter to be inspired by for years to come. Let us all do our parts to expose our children (and ourselves) to the kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and understanding hearts that beat upon our beautiful earth. Let us inspire them to become the generation that changes the conversation.
**If you think you have a story that I should share, please send me a message.
If you are interested in knowing more about me, I am a freelance artist and photographer located in Westchester County, New York. My desire to connect people with the beauty that surrounds us is evident in my photography and illustration, but it is my drive to engage and inspire people with positive and encouraging messages, in which I have found my true passion and calling. When I am occupied with projects that combine all of the above, my heart is at its fullest. If you share my passion, then find me on LinkedIn as well!
