This artist's story is just as inspiring as her paintings. Meet Cathrin Machin—a woman who quit her stressful desk job almost 5 years ago to finally live out her dream. And guess what? Now she's doing what she loves full-time and couldn't be happier about the choices she made.

"Before I started this, I thought [these] paintings would be impossible for my skill level," Cathrin writes on her Instagram. "Honestly, I had no clue how to make it work and I have to be honest, I was so happy and shocked when it worked out. I guess it made me realize that we're all going though life giving 30%, not realizing we have 70% of hidden potential."
