Creativity takes courage.
A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light. Art is not what you see, but what you make. We don't make mistakes, just happy little bit of everything
I paint every day, 5 to 8 hours daily because there are no shortcuts in life. If you have goals you need the discipline to put in the hours. Work hard, believe in yourself, be inspired
If you create something that people want, you will be discovered. Artists are often portrayed as dark introverts
“ When you hear the word introvert, you might think of someone shy or quiet and prefers to be alone “
But that isn’t who I am now. Many people don't start their art careers as full-time artists, but instead hold down two jobs – one for the rent, and one for the love of it. ... That need not make their status as an artist any less professional than someone who spends ten hours of every day working in their studio
I’ve sold so many paintings internationally. People bought the paintings because they liked them and some because I was friendly and allowing them to feel connected with me and my story which adds an emotional value to my artwork
The artworld is changing allowing us to reach collectors around the world through social media Navigate it well and the possibility will be endless.
Never go into the creative process thinking that if the end result isn’t perfect, you have failed.
If you are having trouble accessing your truth, take five minutes to sit silently in your studio. Meditating for even a few minutes a day can greatly improve your creativity, mood, and health.
By considering your art practice an experiment, and by allowing yourself to make mistakes, you are growing as an artist don’t ever stop.
If you ask yourself at the end of the day, did I learn something? and you can answer “yes,”
it was a valuable experience.❤️🎨🖌
