"If you see something beautiful in a girl or a woman,
Yesterday October, 11, 2017 I posted a video to Instagram with the quote above and pictures of illustrations I've created. Here is my connection to this particular quote and my connection to the Day of the Girl.
It is because of you… you who have seen something beautiful in me and complimented me, spoken it over me and prayed it over me, that I am valiant.
It is because of you, sister, that I have the courage to share my art. Something that grows from within until I give life to it on paper.
It is because of you, friend, that I have the confidence to pursue my dreams. You told me to keep going, you told me I was talented and so I started a business.
It is because of you, art lover, that I continue to create. You told me my art made you happy and so I create with you in mind and with a smile on my face.
It is because of you, friends from random coffee shops, that I tell my story. You saw me drawing and asked about what I do. Thank you for approaching me. Thank you for being a light to me. .
Your words are powerful. Your words are nurturing to the girls and women in your life. Use them wisely to celebrate Her.
My name is Gaby. I am the founder of Pinales Illustrated, where my sister and I share our art in various forms with the world.
