Art is my everything. It is the loud voice in my head that it is constantly singing, that I cannot silence- but do not wish to. It is on my mind as soon as I wake up, and it is the last thing I think about before I fall asleep. It is a core part of who I am and who I want to be, and I am undoubtedly at my happiest when I am painting the beautiful colours that transfix me.
I started this blog with the intention to write about my journey from part time artist to full time artist. So here’s a recent update…in sum, May seems to have been a manic manic month! Suddenly out of the blue everything seems to have changed gear. I have a little solo exhibition at the end of the month, I am going to be part of Art Crasher’s Gallery tour in LA, and an Art Gallery now has six of my paintings to display and trial with the view to looking into having them published. If you had told me this last year I probably wouldn’t have believed you.
This new attention my art has received this month is as wonderful to me as it is surprising and surreal. I have always wanted to be an artist, but whereas before I felt like I was wondering around a dark forest with no path…now I feel like I have been given a torch and a map 🙂
I know I still have a long way to go and a lot of work ahead, but this is a happy little encouraging boost.
