|When and how did you begin to see yourself as an artist?
I have always drawn. I took art classes in school and have always known I wanted to do something with art, however, for a while I abandoned my art and began a banking career. I was successful and was Assistant Vice President in charge of the Main Office Branch at Michigan National Bank when I left that career. I then was a SAHM and Homeschool Mom and now have finally found my first love again.
I began to see myself as an Artist about four years ago when I picked up my paint brush once again.
I don't see myself as an artist
gosh it just happened...i still say i am a crafter, fine crafter and once in a while true art comes...
As a child. I was told I was a good artist. I loved that and still to.
Seeing and believing are crucial to be anything you want to see yourself as.
As a child, I was always drawing and I was encouraged. Then, with classes at the Vancouver Art Gallery, we had some top-notch artist-teachers while creating our artwork right in the Gallery, which was closed on Saturday mornings. We were surrounded by art and encouraged in our own endeavours.
When I was in 5th grade and my teacher said that I was a great artist. I thought to myself that would be fun and so I think from that time on I've tried to be an artist!
In college I felt like an artist, I was an art major surrounded by other artists. After school however I lost that and didn't see myself as an artist anymore, I was afraid it was just one phase of my life. Luckily I made a choice to make the arts my career, doing it full time helps me see myself as an artist.
Sophomore year of high school I was forced by my mother to audtion for LaGuardia High School of the Arts. I didn't think my book report covers and Sci-fi sketches were good enough to merrit 3 years of training but they saw different. Even through all the teen angst and hormones of high school, ideas were discussed, all media types were exposed and talents were sharpened. I found what was missing in my life and embraced it.
very young - I was born hyper-sensitive - and grew up with strong receptivity to emotions
I started to think of myself as an artist after a few years of living in Africa, when I realised that I needed to sketch and paint. It took me several more years to start describing myself to the world as an artist. That jump was a big one psychologically. Once I started calling myself an artist I really became one.
I make stuff. I LOVE making things. Just about everyone starts out with that ability. Some of us continue, some don't.
My parents were artists, so art was never a question - just a part of life. I am an artist when I create.
