Creativity rewarded

CJ Hendry 2

When CJ Hendry, an Australian artist, had made the decision to drop out of university, leaving two incomplete degrees behind and embark on a journey to find her true passion, most people thought her crazy. Enjoying nothing more than shopping, luxury items and drawing, she set about combining the three by producing hyper-realistic renditions of shoes, crumpled Armani shopping bags and other luxury items. Without former training in art, the 26-year old has never exhibited any works in galleries, only through social media. She was discovered through Instagram – and her life-size artworks carry price tags of $ 50,000.

So whatever you do, FIND YOUR PASSION AND follow your DREAMS!

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
