For as long as I can remember I’ve always had access to crayons, colouring books, and paper. We were dang poor but this is one thing we had. One of my fondest memories is just spending hours colouring with my sister. it was always something I enjoyed doing. Just playing with colours, drawing. It wasn’t something I did consistently.

One of my favourite classes in school was art. High school was the first time I thought I might be good at something. One time in English class we had a project where we had to do activities from a list regarding a book we were reading. I don’t remember the book but I remember spending a lot of time creating a map of where the book took place. I was SO proud of what I had done, it was SO good. So good in fact my teacher asked if he could keep it. I let him.

As I got older, and life happened art was something I got away from.I still doodled but nothing more. In the last 6 years I’ve found a lot of happiness in creating art of all kinds. Whether it’s drawing, doodles, painting, playing with clay or more recently digital art I find myself able to channel stress in to my art. I find comfort and community.

Art can mean and be so many things to so many people. I love watching other people do their art and love just looking at art. I don’t have a process or any specific techniques. A lot of times I get an idea and I’m compelled to make it happen. Most times it really doesn’t turn out as expected a lot of the feedback I get leads me to think I’m doing a decent job. There are some pieces that I look at and I can’t believe my hand created them, both the good and the bad, lol.

I love taking awesome photographs, and just letting my feelings out in any medium I can. I’m glad that art doesn’t have to be done with the most expensive of tools. If I could create art all day and make a living I would. I would love to have a dedicate art space.

Art is a kind of hope, for me. I hope so much when I do the art that most times it’s exhausting. What are some of you favourite artists?
