Creativity is a God given gift which everyone has.
Some paint, some write, some illustrate, some act, some make beautiful craft items, others paint with food, others write music…………the list is endless……….but yes even you (the person reading this) can create a beautiful thing. The only requirement for this creative masterpiece is that you have to like it! This I think is important and that it is “composed” by yourself.
There seems to be so much elitism in “art” and exclusivity but I am convinced everyone is an “artist”. So get creating!!!
I mainly paint, print, stitch, etc. for myself, not primarily for the commercial market, although its great when someone wants to buy a piece of artwork because they like it. I was a primary school teacher for 13 years and am convinced that art is an essential commodity in life’s journey. I couldn’t survive without it. Its part of my DNA.
I have had a painting selected and exhibited in the Birmingham Open Exhibition and in the annual exhibition at the Patchings Art Centre, Nottingham, organised by ‘The Artist’ and ‘Leisure Painter’ magazines
