Some of my Artsy hobbies… ( Updated 7-21-2018 )
A long standing favorite hobby of mine is painting. when I was little I picked up a paintbrush for the first time and tried.. thinking that since I was ‘amazing’ at drawing, and 10 minutes at a canvas would produce a Mona Lisa… I truly was naive, practice and observation makes perfect.
This is a hobby of mine that has been around since I can remember. Assuming my memory started at age 4, I’ll say a long time! Whether it’s a quick doodle, fashion sketch or detailed illustration…. this is something that has always been a part of me!
I’ve written and illustrated a children’s book, and wrote a novel. The children’s book I just need to edit before sending to a publisher and the novel? I consider that as the trial run before the novel I’m working on now! I’ll be sure to write a post about it soon! I also love to document my adventures and growth, so I keep a journal and write old fashioned snail mail to my friends!
When I got my first touch screen I hurriedly snatched up an art app. Now I love digital painting! Not quite as much as REAL painting, but I’m not going to lie, sometimes when I’m painting with the real medium, I wish I had that undo button. Now I have professional gear and I love it all the more!
I can’t begin to guess when I started photography, but these past 5 years, you’ll often catch me with a camera in my hands documenting my life, events, and enjoying photography as another form of creative expression.
I’ve loved photography ever since I first picked up a camera (Okay, at this point just assume I love everything art related!). When I took my first real photography class I uncovered a new way to express myself and now another art hobby/obsession!
