Art is a lifelong journey of self-discovery.

Art teaches you to love yourself and be patient with yourself. It teaches you that imperfections can be beautiful, and that with every piece, you improve. It also teaches you that you are the only artist in the world who can create exactly like you. Your heart and soul and mind come through in every piece...uniquely, beautifully yours. The person who said, "Where ever you go, there you are" must have been an artist, too. For no matter how skilled you become, no matter the medium or techniques employed, there will always be that magical, one of a kind style that is yours and yours alone. (Even if you are trying to emulate someone else!)

Art can show you your flaws, your shortcomings, and sometimes even feel as if it is taunting you. It can also be your best friend, your passionate lover, your greatest comforter. Art can be many things, but it will always be there waiting for you no matter what else is happening in your life.

Dive into the ocean that is art. Swim in it. Immerse yourself completely. Let its waves wash over you, and in the greatest of moments, become one with its turbulent flood. Then, watch where it takes you. It will fill you with satisfaction and gladness.


ArtisticAdventures's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I am a life long lover of art, drawing ever since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I am self taught and dabble in many forms of art...drawing, painting, dancing, sewing, sculpting, jewelry making, even the art of cooking. I am madly in love with color, form, texture, and the way light and shadow work together. I am also passionate about music, history, culture, and consider myself an armchair anthropologist/archeologist.
I am a mother of two wonderful children whom I love and adore with every ounce of my being. Everyday they inspire me to be the very best person I can be.
