Art has been an integral part of my life as far back as I can remember. Where I lacked in a subject while going to school, I always tried to make it up by adding art into the assignment (didn’t always work in math class). In my youth I practiced the most common art forms like drawing, charcoal, crayon, and the like, however it wasn’t until I reached High School that I started dabbling in oil painting. Well life takes off fast and although I often did random art projects through the years, it wasn’t until around 2009 that I picked up art again, eventually exploring watercolor. It came very natural to me and I have won many awards for my paintings, but personally that doesn’t really matter much. To me, it has always been about the excitement of creating something from nothing. Besides the joy art provides for me, I also love participating with others while they discover the creativity that has been inside them all along.
