There are two quotes that I feel describe where I am as an artist.
“Creativity takes courage.” - Henri Matisse
“Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.” - Salvador Dali
Art makes me happy. It gives me an outlet to be creative and relax. I enjoy drawing and painting mostly. I also work with fiber and clay.
I believe that being an artist and showing your creativity to others takes courage, which is why I chose a quote from artist Henri Matisse. I also believe that as a young artist, still learning and growing, that it’s important to admire the works of other artists. I try new techniques and develop my own abilities by learning about and emulating other artists. My very first painting was inspired by the works of Salvador Dali.
I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
