"The Road Less Traveled" is about an artist with a passion for taking herself out of her comfort zone in order to get inspiration from the least expected situations, places and people. 

Just by diving into action and making my project public is a HUGE STEP for this artist! This is a project that started the moment it got published... 100% OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE. And that's the idea!

I wish to take this idea even further by incorporating the supporters into what is most personal to me: my creative process, the weeks I'll spend surrounded by the unkown, and the richness of content I wish to find while travelling into the Heart of America. 

Before any of my paintings or illustrations become art, they usually start out as anecdotes, conversations, photographs or stories that I write about. It's mostly about the people, they are the ones who inspire me. Social media and digital communication has had a crucial impact in my ability to absorb all around me.

Passion? check! Sense of adventure? check! Company?... that's where YOU come in! I want you to join me digitally along the way.

Your support will make this matryoshka of a project possible. 

You can always find what I'm up to by searching for JOJAPIPOSA on Twitter, Pinterest or Instagram, subscribing to me on Facebook, and visiting my blog, of course: JOJAPIPOSA.
