I have always loved being creative. From photography to writing, developing courses and workbooks, journals and newsletters. Yes. I think it fits.
Self defined titles are important. How do I see myself and how do I want others see me? If I tell people I’m a retired police officer, it means I used to be… And that’s true. But, I don’t want to have been something, I want to be something.
What do I want to be? What do I want to do?
I want to paint, write, learn, draw, sing, dance, explore, create, explore, discover, weld, sculpt…
The great thing about being an artist, as I see it, is getting to play like a child, wearing colorful and quirky clothes and best of all…since art is in the eye of the beholder, creating what I love.
The next time someone asks what I do, I’m going to say I’m an artist. And luckily, the bills are paid so I can skip the starving part.
