Returning to Art

Welcome to my blog

An audio version of this intro is available below the text.

Most blog posts will also have an audio version.

I’m an artist. It took me a long time to call myself that despite wanting to be an artist for most of my life.

It’s not an unusual story among artists, I loved creating art as a child and by the time I was a teenager, it was the only thing I wanted to do with my life.

I graduated from art school with a BFA but got lost in a different career early on. More than 10 years passed before I started to make art again.

During the years when I wasn’t making art, I felt like I was hiding part of myself. I felt like no one really knew me because I didn’t completely identify with the person I allowed myself to become. 

More than 10 years have passed since I started making art again and my life is completely changed. I left the old career behind and have built my life around the things I love most. I make art often, every day if possible.

In this blog, I write about returning to art after a long absence. I hope my journey might inspire others who would like to start making art again or even for the first time.
