When do you become an artist? Are we born an artist, do we become one at a certain age or when we graduate from higher education?

I have done art all my life.  I admit I never even thought about it until I was in High School and I realized I might actually be good at it.  

I went to college and took art but I admit that doing art for a living was too intimidating. I ended up working at the first job I could get. Working with preschoolers.  I decided art education was my love.  Not only did I get to do what I loved I also had the chance to share it.  I was amazed at the magic that art had over lives.

I loved my years at college and University!  I loved being in the studio, immersed in the world of the the artsy.

But life has a habit of stealing away what gives us life. The saying " Being so busy making a living, that you don't have a life" is so true.  Teaching had a way of swallowing life.

I admit to waking up one day and realizing that art had been pushed far far far back in my life. 

 

I was not happy.  

My life was slipping by and my art had stagnated  for over 10 years.  I knew I needed to change this . I was a better person when I was living my passion. So I  took the plunge and switched from teacher and artist to artist and teacher. 

 

I thank my husband for encouraging me to make this change. I'm a far happier person. I still love teaching art but I need to produce art. Its my passion, my love and my obsession. 

 

That dream became real when this summer my studio became a reality and not just a corner of my living room.  I still walk into the studio and have to pinch myself.
