Does it get YOU mad enough to egg you on or does it make you hide?
I hope it causes YOU to get angry & prove them wrong!
I’ll tell you my experience….
I used to like drawing! I recall finding all kinds of paper to draw, when I was young. I was getting quite good by the time I reached Grade 7 in Junior High School, where the unthinkable happened – I was told I will need to think of something other than ART to do as a hobby or career!
I tried my hand at all kinds of Crafts but still had that voice in my head.
In 2001, I declared myself an ARTIST!
YES, I waited until I was 47 to declare that!!!
In the Inner Work, that I have been doing the past 5 years, I realize now that I should have continued and I do not beat myself up for going to the HIDE mode. I realize that that is the only way I knew at the time to handle that. Declaring myself an Artist in 2001, but not truly believing it until 3 years was a life long journey.
Finding Art Quilting propelled me into Finding my Voice.
I was led to Altered Art, Art Journaling and Mixed Media.
I call myself a Textile Mixed Media Artist because I love working with fabrics, then adding all kinds of other mediums to them.
When someone tells you you can’t – go inside to what YOUR feelings are telling YOU, not what someone else is telling you! If Art is what is speaking to you, keep doing it no matter what someone says!
And, if you are like me, don’t dwell on the years lost – get busy and ENJOY the rest of your days!!!
My mission/purpose in life is to Spread Positive Creativity worldwide.
I hope with my website/blog you realize that ART can heal and help you through any troubles you may be having.
When Someone Tells You You Can’t…..what are YOU going to do?
BELIEVE in YOURSELF and listen to your Inner Voice not someone else’s.
