First of all I would like to say that I do not consider my self ”an artist” , rather “an artist to be” or “under construction”. But then that kind of opens the BIG question: when are you an artist? Are you an artist when you’ve got a gift for visualizing your ideas, when you are in the position of some qualifying techniques, or have attended several studies and art schools? To be honest; I don’t quite know yet. But something I do know is; what a strong love I feel for it. simply being entitled to observe and explore every aspect of art and creativity, is a rewording factor in my everyday life. When I hold a brush, pencil, or even a piece of clay in my hand, I forget about time and place. It abets me to escape from reality and disappear for a while. I know this sounds clich? – but framing is almost like meditation to me. It is purely something that I am so passionate about and drawn to. It allows me to let go of pressure, and get all of my frustrations and emotions out. -At times, just being able to release something other than tears, can be a true blessing! Creating also gives me a sense of security. When I paint; that is MY world – something that I “own”, and no one can take away from me – a stable factor in my life that I can always rely on. One of my earliest memories; is sitting by a table in kindergarten, drawing a purple horse with a oceanblue mane. I remember how the teacher complimented the drawing like it was yesterday.. – utterly feeling proud and very satisfied whit my accomplishment– it is probably that hunch, which was the main drive for me to continue to draw, when I was younger. Making a drawing and then trying to do the next one even better and so on.... Now drawing has almost become an obsession and a lifestyle. I love to challenge my versatility and work with a variety of materials. At this moment I prefer to study something as simple as the pencil. I like the lightness of this traditional tool, and confront myself in different techniques. Form an aesthetic attention between shadow and light. Just smoothly blending the shades to make them float from a dark to lighter scale. I like to see art as a long journey – all open and ready to be explored... And mine has just begun!
