I am a full time Artist and let me be the first to tell you that there are a lot of critics out there. Not that I am cynical..... But It takes a lot to put my emotional self out there for a living. There will always be someone who ReaLLy enjoys me and my work. YEAH. (these are the folks you gather around you) Then other days there are some who... well, just don't get it. AND that is ok too. Why am I any different than all of you. We all have an inner critic. RIGht?
My Point here is... Just start doing what you love and in YOUR own aesthetic. Have your inner VOICE LOUD and Proud. You got here because of your life. And whatever starts the flame in your heart to grow... Well then.
Enjoy Life and like you for who you are. It may not be perfect... who said that anyway. It is not about that, it is about just the act of DOING. Picasso was not Picasso in a day, It took a lifetime.
"Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams."
Celebrating life with wit, integrity and knowing you can do anything; you set your mind to. Sometimes we fall down… However, Most of the time finding out what we want to be when we grow up is about elimination of what you don’t want to do. Which in turn leads us to where we really want to be. SO start checking off your list.

"Follow your instincts. That's where true wisdom manifests itself."
