Hello there, fellow unicorn!
My name is Andréa, I’m a designer artist from Toronto, Canada, who makes magical art that inspires people.
I created Unicorns Everywhere as a way of combining everything I love – unicorns, magic, art, design, pole dance, self-discovery, spirituality and the occult.
I’ve been searching for a place where I could be myself, be colorful, sparkly but still talk about my experiences. I wanted to combine everything under one hat and nothing was coming along. I felt like I was split up into tiny little pieces and none of them made a puzzle. You see, I had been a fairly unhappy graphic designer for the last five years and felt lost after being laid off from a big corporate office. Was money the only thing that mattered to me? Did money = happiness?
I refused to believe I couldn’t be happy doing something I loved. But what did I love? Was I a designer or an artist? Who was I?
I am a unicorn!
And then one Sunday afternoon, mid-March, a friend had made a comment that on the outside looked superficial, but on the inside had a lot of wisdom – “you can’t go into a store looking for a specific black dress. You’ll never find it. And you might miss out on something you’d really like just because you wanted to find that specific black dress.”
I then turned to my significant other and was talking to him about it when I made the joke “I wish I could just put unicorns everywhere!” and he was kinda like well, why not? And Unicorns Everywhere, the idea, was born.
So after much thought, I decided that a blog was the perfect way to put the puzzle pieces together. A place where one could go and be inspired, share and have beautiful magical art accessible to them. Or even request a custom-made design.
Why can’t things be all in one place? Now they can!
Welcome home, unicornians!
