Why Do I Love Art?
For me, art is something I know I am quite good at, and that I can be proud of it. It’s also a huge stress reliever. Over the past few years, I’ve suffered quite badly with anxiety, depression and stress and I needed an escape. I can spend anything from two hours to around ten hours on one drawing or painting and concentrating on colours and shading just takes me to another place in my head. I don’t have to think about what’s going on and I can just enjoy being in the moment. It’s something I can do solely for me which is so important.
Eventually, I will have to begin throwing work out to start making room for new paintings and drawings and they aren’t good enough to sell, so I’m posting them here as a way of being able to look back on them in the future!
