springintosummer asked: When did you know you wanted to express yourself through art?
I think I’ve always had a need to do something with my hands, and art has always allowed me to satisfy that need, ever since I can remember.
When I was in elementary, middle, and high school it was always my favorite subject and my parents only encouraged it, even at the young age of 6. I was never sure that I would pursue art academically. It wasn’t until after my first year of college that I realized creating and learning about art was something I had to do, because I couldn’t bear not to.
