TIME IS SHORT……LET’S GET BUSY!
I am continually questioning my roll in the art world. As time goes on I feel, more and more, the need to help people discover their inner artist. If you have read my Bio, you know that I wasn’t particularly “artistic” from a young age. Although I loved art, I never saw myself in that light. In fact, I fought it! I was quite possibly the most stubborn art student that there could be. Here I was, sitting with all of this creativity bubbling inside me, and nobody could force me to get it out. I had to discover it myself!
Through the years, I have come to learn that we ALL have creativity in us! As a gift shop and gallery owner for 4 years, I can’t tell you how many times I heard the words “I wish I was creative.” Well, let me be the first to tell you that YOU ARE! We are ALL “creations”, we are ALL unique, we ALL have an individual voice in the world. NOBODY can replicate what we do, and that is what creativity is all about. Whether it be in the kitchen, in the garden, with the way you display your xmas decorations or how you do your hair in the morning, YOU ARE CREATIVE!
The art world is a journey of discovery and the possibilities for exploration are never ending. I invite each and every one of you to just put your anxieties aside and JUST TRY something! Sign up for a class, buy a small paint set, get a sketchbook, do some photography, paint a wall in your house a different colour, just EXPRESS yourself! The feeling is unbelievable and I know you will LOVE it!
