So I have started this because I love Leonie Dawson's creativity and she makes it look all so easy and I just feel I need to be doing something to share what I do! I love creating my own art and for a long time I did small art fairs, local coffee shops, Saturday Market and so on.....but none of this really worked. I struggled and still am struggling to share my art the way I want to with people. And I really really do want to get what I do out "there".
What do I do? I create original colored pencil art. And I mean original. I don't do copies or prints or things like that. I toyed with the idea for a long time but couldn't make myself come to accept that the copy was as good as the real thing. And I still can't! I am not sure where this principle crept into my life but it is there and I have learned to live with it. This means I have had many rejections on the sole basis that I do not have prints available.....I always think really?! So now I am trying to brainstorm up some new things to get what I do out there without compromising my principle. I know many people love what I do and would love to hand original art in there home.......not necessarily matching their couch!
So here I am at the very beginning. I hope to blog regularly on this site about creating and what it all means, hopefully adding a portfolio page so more can see what I do and if they like what they see purchase it. Or contact me about commissions. I also want to just have things I find that are truly inspirational for just getting out there and making a dream come true! So for now this is my one small step on a new journey.
