Every child is an artist, the problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up 👩🏼‍🎨 I loved working with colours and different mediums and just experimenting with everything overall. My mom and dad would buy me that giant marker set that opened up like a suit case with sooo many choices of colours and the jumbo pencil crayon box that had the special colours that the regular box didn’t have. My choices rapidly expanded to include oil pastels, acrylic paint, and a many more by the time I was just 6 or 7. I was so excited just to have possession of these things so I would make art all day long. My parents were always very encouraging of my work although when I was younger I would literally have one line across the page and that would be it 👀 (I know many of you could probably relate to that 🙊) My dad specifically was the best, his reaction to all my work (including just the line across the page) was “WOWWW BABY, GOOD JOB!” My mom on the other hand wanted me to learn not to waste paper and would encourage me to use up more of the white space...which obviously lead me to drawing another 5 more lines across the page 😅Eventually art went from being a hobby to a passion of mine. I think what I loved about it the most was that it had the ability to distract me from rough times. It allowed me to take my mind off things or to even express and release my thoughts. But it was also a part of my happy moments as well. This sketch was and probably still is my most favourite of my collection because I made it as a gift for one of my favourite teachers for her maternity leave. I stayed up the night before her last day at school and finished it in just 5 hours...which yes was a huge deal to me at the time. And yes I could have totally avoided staying up if I wasn’t so last minute. But oh well, I’ve learnt my lesson now. As I got older I did lose touch with my artistic side but I do want to get back into it soon. . . . picture #creative
