I am Busy working away getting my little ideas down on paper, my brain is working ten fold on drawing, painting and writing. I just wish my brain was a little bit like this when I was at Uni. I have had a lot of people since yesterday ask me a few questions about my drawing and creative process, and there has been a few negative slightly back handed compliment style comments, can I just take the moment to put a little thing straight, please don’t be jealous of a skill that I may posses I have been drawing and painting since I was about 2, so that is 22 years of honing my skills, thousands of hours of drawing, illustrating, painting and writing ideas down. Yes drawing now does come easy to me, but I have had to work on it. So please don’t feel jealous, if you want to draw or learn to draw remember any skill worth having you have to work for. Passion and a love for being creative isn’t simple, sometimes I feel like I am crap at drawing and I am useless, I think we all have those moments when we are doing something, so if you feel like you can’t draw of create you can anyone can.
I hope my work inspires you to grab a pencil and paper, or even to go to an art gallery and enjoy art, thats my goal when I share my work its not to show off, I was never ever taught how to draw, I was nurtured and shown the importance of being creative for myself, not to brag, not to show off but to create pieces that are good for your soul. Drawing to me is like meditating, its my switch off and chill time. Don’t get me wrong there are skills I wish I was good at, like singing and playing music, which can I just say the boyfriend is amazing at, but I appreciate that we are all different imagine that if all of us could draw art would be less appreciated it would be less thought of as special or less important.
Thank you for your kind words about my weekend away and the photos, I am so glad you enjoyed them, its funny when I see people googling who my boyfriend is, haha very strange, slightly funny and a little odd…I can promise you he is real.
