I have always loved creating. In my childhood I spent hours forming pipe cleaner animals, penciling tiny stapled "chapter-books", and whatever else my eager mind could come up with. In my teens, I continued to enjoy writing and developing my drawing skills, and I loved everything about the arts.... Once I hit the "real world", I got a career and a job, and the arts fell to the background. I made decent money, but I wasn't pursuing any creative outlets. Then I was met with some curveballs, and soon my predictable future turned into the great mysterious unknown. Due to health and allergies I developed related to my career, I had to look at other options. After spending some time overseas with a non-profit organization, I came back to with new perspective and direction, but still didn't know what kind of career to pursue. Finally, after years with little room for creativity or artist expression, I began a handmade jewelry business. The response was positive, and it was extremely rewarding for people to appreciate what I had created. But having started, the love of art and creative drive I had forgotten sprung to life, and a part of me came to life that I honesty forgot I had. Or at least had thought it died. --- And now I can't help but create. When I'm doing the grunt work of running a business, I just keep thinking of what else I want to draw, paint, design or develop. I'm driving to the gym, and I just want to pull over and take pictures, because I see something I want to paint. I wish there was more time in a day, and we didn't have to sleep! I'm glad that so many doors were shut in my life, because I probably never would've have had the guts to pursue art like I am able to now. Lack of time and fear of failure held me back for years. But now I realize how much it's part of who I am, and how being able to express creatively is important, whoever you are. If you don't draw or paint, go garden, build something, design a code. Whatever. Make time to do what you love! ...more
