It seems a lifetime ago I earned a degree in Fine Arts only to find myself overtaken by life events. Now over 30 years later I’m finally becoming an artist. I’m trained as a painter and its my first love. In the last few years I’ve also given photography a try and you will find my attempts at same in my posts and, soon, my portfolio.
In a world where artist are pressured to measure their success based on others’ expectations — be it sales, representation, publication etc., I share this remarkable statement by Georgia O’Keeffe. (It definitely speaks to me)
“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.”
And for your ongoing inspiration:
