I don’t remember what made me start witting in the art room during junior year but I am so glad I did. I’ve always loved art. The only memory I clearly have from elementary school was sitting in art class and learning how to draw a tree. A lot of people in my family are artistic but I like to think I get my artistic interests from my Grandpa Pat. I don’t know what I would be doing if I didn’t find art. It’s very calming for me. It’s like the whole world gets quiet when I draw and I go to this really soothing place. Today I painted a picture for my friend Sophia and it was probably the best thing I have painted in awhile. Picking up a paint brush makes me feel a lot better when I am having a bad day. I may not be an art school graduate but I think I do pretty well considering. Sometimes I feel self-conscious when I post my art online. I’m worried about what people say about me. Sometimes I think about where I might be if I decided to go to college and pursue art. I honestly think I would be really unhappy. I don’t think I was made to work a normal job. I honestly don’t know what kind of job I was made for. It’s mind boggling sometimes. I’m unemployed but I’m really happy about where I am and what I’m choosing to do. I love working with my mom and I love making jewelry. I also love incorporating my designs into our company. I am really happy where I am right now and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for our shop.
