I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I started drawing when I was a little girl and never stopped. My mother was a wonderful artist and my inspiration. I used to watch her draw and paint and was mesmerized by the beautiful drawings and paintings she created. I would draw on any scrap piece of paper I could find as a child. As I got older, I started trying different mediums: charcoal, pencil, chalk, pastels, and then started painting with oils. My mother and I would take an art class occasionally at the local community college and that’s where my love for watercolors began.
The need for art in my life has increased over the years. There is a peace I feel within while painting or drawing. It is my escape from the real world.
Art, for me, is a release into a world of creativity and a time for me to leave the worries of the world behind. When I am painting or drawing, I am totally focused on what I’m working on, and time just passes by. I love the feeling when a piece is complete. I can’t describe the feeling, but it is a true sense of joy and satisfaction. I am always amazed at the finished piece and know that my talent is a God given talent.
As I get older, I am trying to focus more on painting and drawing. Whether it be a watercolor painting, a Zentangle drawing, or a mural on a wall; my paint brushes and pens are always ready.
