Did you know I was a painter?

A very long time ago, I was a painter.

I went to college as an Art and Theater Double Major.  I went through 2 years, taking only major courses during the school year.  I spent summers taking general education courses in order to be able to take double course loads during the school year.

I found the Art world in college hard, I couldn't find inspiration as easily as I did in high school.  I found that I compared every piece of work I ever made to everyone else's.  Was I good enough?  Did I have an opinion?  Did I have talent?  Could I make a living?

At the end of my sophomore year, I was told by my advisers that I had to drop a major.  So, I chose Theater.  I could always paint in theater, right?  Little did I know there was a huge difference.

When I stopped making paintings, I stopped making visual art.

I started making crafts a few years back.  These crafts have served me well and get me some attention, but crafts aren't the same as art.  Art is never the same to anyone, I just know there was a bit of a  difference in what I used to make compared to what I could make.

So bringing back some 'Art'.

My favorite piece.  It took some time, but I love it.  More to come, check out my Etsy shop for more!
