Not all of us identify as “creative,” but I truly believe that everyone is called to create something! For some, that means growing a family, a garden, or a healthy repertoire of meals for your family and friends to feast on. For others, it means building a career, a business, a farm, or maybe even an organization that builds back into the lives of others.
For me, it’s design.
I started designing “things” when I was just a toddler and continued to be fascinated by design all through my school years. I wasn’t “artsy” or confident; and, I certainly didn’t feel like I fit the typical designer profile. But there was something in me that needed to give it a try. So I left for Alberta, at the age of 19, and spent two years completing a Diploma of Interior Design (DID) through Lethbridge College. I later completed additional coursework through RCCIT’s Interior Design Program.
After a decade of working in and out of the field - experiencing many highs and lows, and successes and failures along the way - I officially launched Amy Walters Design in January 2018. There will be many more highs and lows to come, but when you’re called to create, you keep moving forward, resting in the simple fact that you’re not doing it alone.
Here’s to discovering and pursuing your own creative calling!
