Enchanted Doll in Coilhouse magazine
About a year ago I was walking by a bookstore in this trendy, bohemian shopping district in Vancouver and I saw a really cool-looking magazine cover with a tittle COILHOUSE in the window. I thought to myself that I would really like to have my work featured in this magazine. Then, while I was in Paris a few months later I accidentally stumbled across this magazine’s website again while searching for alternative art galleries in downtown Paris. As I browsed through the site, I became even more intrigued by the content of the magazine and wished again that I could be a part of it one day.
That day came just a week later when Coilhouse magazine editor emailed me requesting an interview for an Enchanted Doll feature in their upcoming issue. The coincidence and the timing was so uncanny that it was as if I wished it into being. As if Coilhouse had received my telepathic message and contacted me. This is by far not the first time something like this has happened to me and I’ve come to believe that I have way more power over my destiny than it seems possible.
It almost feels like magic sometimes you know; as if you can bend the universe to your own will with a mere thought.Â But I know that perception is false- it takes much more than a thought to make something happen. I believe in randomness and chaos: thereÂ is no such thing as fate. We make our own destiny and create our own opportunities.
Like they say: When there is a will, there is a way.
The full spread can be found in my press section. I love the layout. Check out COILHOUSE website and show your support by getting a subscription to the magazine. It’s really cool. We need more publications like this one instead of stupid women’s magazines such as Self (recent Kelly Clarkson photoshoped cover scandal) or Cosmopolitan that feed women nothing but relentless product advertising, celebrity worship, self doubt and false beauty ideals. It makes me so mad that I wish nothing but ruin and bankruptcy on them.
Maybe if I wish really really hard again……
