    I love expressing myself through art in all

    forms; music, photography, video, graphic design, fashion, etc. Creative expression never rests. I never liked to express myself through words cause I was never good at it. Sometimes I can't keep a conversation with someone because I simply cannot find the right words to express...

    I studied chemistry,

    and I've been working as a pharmacist, but in truth I am an artist at heart. I love to paint, but don't ask me to show you my works! I am content, but I'd love to exhibit.

    I'm an artist at heart,

    sure, but I also make my living through my art. And seriously, that is not an easy thing to do, nor does it seem practical at all times... If you have a creative way of approaching something you love to do, however, you're an artist too. Many of us who don't consider...

    I love drawing, not just

    because I'm good at it, but because I can express my feelings with my drawings. They help me understand who I am. I respect any artist out there, from what ever country you are from, because you as much as I make the difference of what an Artist at heart is!

    The artist is always the servant,

    and is perpetually trying to pay for the gift that has been given to him as if by a miracle. Modern man, however, does not want to make any sacrifice, even though true affirmation of the self can only be expressed in sacrifice. Andrei Tarkovsky

    Music is to the heart what language is to the

    mind. As a musician and writer I use the canvas of emotions in every note, melody, song I write. To me the Original Artist who said "let us make man into our image" Genesis 1-2 has made us all artists with desires to build make and create.

    I always thought of myself

    as an artist even when i didn't create art. I write poetry now and i'm about to publish a book but even before i always considered myself an artist at heart. I can see art everywhere. In my mind, in nature, in other people, in emotions... Art is simply everywhere for me.

    Imagination But No Talent......

    I think I have a great imagination, I can think up some really neat stuff, but then when I try to draw it or paint it or sculpt it or make it, it looks like something a 3rd grader would have made, it looks really good in my minds eye, but the finished product sucks!

    Really anything can be considered art. Dancing painting writing and many others. For me its my poetry I write from the heart. My emotions experiences it all comes into play. Yes some may be a lil dark and twisty or angry. But its all part of me and it makes me an artist at heart...

    think. I'm not particularly adept at coming up with my own ideas, though I do sometimes. I love crafts, I make jewelry and do paracording. I love DIY projects (yay Pinterest!) and building things. I've also been known to dabble in writing. I'm not generally happy with my writing...

    because I'm good with a pencil when I give anything effort in drawing, I hope to be one of the greats in photography and drawing, but I know I'm already one of the greats no matter what I do because my mother and fiancé believe in me.
