Artist, singer, model... lover of all things good and lovely and interesting.
-from Denham Springs, LA.
I'm a self-taught artist. For me, art is kind of second nature. It's a necessary thing. I can remember when I first started dabbling in art. Like many things, it was something that I just decided to try one day... but unlike many things, creating art actually stuck. :) I've never really thought of myself as an actual "artist" but for as long as I can remember I've always loved to create, and I've always been pulled towards the creative world; music, fashion, entertainment.
There are so many wonderful things about art. I love the challenge of creation, the spark of an idea and the (often laborious) process that leads to the birth of something beautiful. I love the failures, the paint spills, the 'I worked on this for 8 hours and still can't quite get it right' hand, and the happy accidents just as much as I love the smell of varnish, a new tube of paint and the promise that lies in a fresh blank canvas! In art, just as in life, there is beauty in every single aspect... You just have to open your eyes and see it.
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8
