Highly Creative Blogger Interview #3: Jessie Marianiello

I hope you enjoyed our Week 3 interview with Jessie. A creative power e-pack of all 12 inspiring interviews plus over 122 pages of accompanying transcripts and bonuses are now available at Your Creative Spark.

For pet portrait artist, Jessie Marianiello, it’s all about capturing personality. Jessie’s paintings are a heartfelt gesture celebrating the unconditional love and infinite happiness that our four-legged friends have brought to us.

Jessie’s goal as an artist and animal lover is to create artwork that honors the unique life force within each of us. She paints to tell a story. But, even more so, she paints because it causes her to experience more love than she often know what to do with.

Jessie is a full-time artist living in the wintery tundra of Minneapolis, MN with her three dogs, 2 cats, and 1 husband. She loves strong coffee, is the creator of the Be Brave Project, and believes in creating a life that fills you from the inside out.

How wonderful! The interview rocked. I can tell you guys really work well together and Jessie, I LOVE the apron ritual. I may have to indulge in that. The idea of a sacred apron is rocking my world. Now is it for art or baking for me? Hmmm....is there a difference? LOL.

Ahhhh... That was SO great!
I needed that extra dose of inspiration!

Lisa said...

I needed this, too. I do a few brave things and then get scared again so it's good to be reminded to just keep going.

I'm listening to this interview for the second time through! It ROCKS! I love the sacred apron! I want one!

I came across Jessie several months ago, touched by her Be Brave Project. I'm very timid and fearful, and just thinking about starting the project scares me! LOL! I do a few brave things at a time, then get overwhelmed and go back to my timid self.

Thanks for this interview! I'm motivated and enthused!
