I am not an artist that can bound myself in a box. I am really learning to embrace all the different skills that grace me as an artist, instead of looking at them negatively. Yes! I paint, Yes! I create mixed media art, Yes! I love to illustrate. Yes! I love having my hands covered in paint. Yes! I love that I find specs of paint on most of my clothing. I love it all. I want to find the#truebeauty in all of those skills, and not just focus on one. This is not an easy task, but I work each day to overcome this.
