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!
