American artist Kat O’Sullivan purchased a run-down 1840s residence in upstate New York, reconstructing the entire establishment into a whimsical world of wacky art and general creative mayhem, depicting rainbow-colored, hand-painted murals and marvelous illustrations. She has been waltzing around the planet, from Mongolia, Timbuktu, the Amazon, Philippines to India and many more places – not listening to all the people who insisted that settling down is the way life is ought to be lived. “Sometimes it takes a lot of work to remember that a life lived in the pursuit of joy is just as valid (or more!) than a life lived in the pursuit of money.” For more of her stories check out www.katwise.com.
