When Your Artist Voice Appears

If you had asked me at age nine or ten what I wanted to be when I grew up I would have without hesitation said a teacher! Not only was art the furthest thing from my mind but I did not recognize, discover, or reveal my creativity until my adult years. I fell in love with works of African American Artist viewed at the South Side Community Art Center in Chicago and that was it for me! I dived in with everything I had and loved the feeling within when I was creating. Discovering my voice as an artist took many twists and turns. Thinking that I had to fit in and paint like everyone else in order to be consider an “artist” was a big mistake. Fortunately I surrounded myself with a community of artists who helped me understand that my art was an extension of me and that my job as an artist was to find my voice and by doing so I would find my audience. So far they were not wrong!

Finding your voice, its an art thang!
