We had the good fortune of connecting with Cajita Clarida and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Cajita, what do you attribute your success to?
Prayer!!!!!! It all started from prayer and has been a blessing as well as a success because of continuous prayers. Something so simple is in reality extremely powerful.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I get excited seeing others happy. I have always had a heart for people and by utilizing the gifts of help and service over the years I have been able to effectively give clients that theraputic release they need during one of our paint sessions. Whether it be through a hug, personal prayer or just releasing it all on the canvas. I always tell them before we begin its not about knowing how to paint, but just about creating their own masterpiece to speak whatever they desire it to say. And because of this, Healing, Deliverance, Joy, and Peace manifest on their behalf. They dont leave out the same way they came. Its a ministry within my business that God has definitely birthed in me. I’ve learned to allow God to be God through me in this business, I’m just a vessel he deems worthy to help Him bring freedom, restoration, and refreshing through painting. I’ve stayed focused and not worried about opinions of others, nor those trying to compete…..What doors that are meant for me to walk in, I shall!

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
That’s easy, I live right in the center of all the beaches from Topsail Island, Carolina Beach, Oak Island beach, Ocean Isle Beach and Myrtle Beach to name a few. And of course, there is always time to go eat crab legs and any seafood you can think of along with a great deal of tourist attractions in Myrtle Beach….never a dull moment here.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband, siblings and my children have been a great deal of support as well as encouragement during this journey. They were always willing to help wherever and whenever I needed them from enormous paint parties to even greater wedding events. Just such a blessing.
