Previously this website was personal studio owned by a person who had a passion for art. The owner showcased some of the drawings, comics, photography and writing that he had prepared on the site.
Artistic works show the creativity sides of human beings by helping us evoke the feelings, experiences and the humor side of our inner self with the aim of educating, entertaining and preserving our culture. In life there are some things, events or situations which cannot be merely expressed by words if you want them to be correctly interpreted.
The aesthetics in heart not only enable us to express ourselves, but to relive stress while we enjoy what we are doing and have pride by getting complemented for the work that we share with others. In sharing we want our opinion known to others as we mirrors and reflect a true picture of the society that we live in.
If history is to go by, arts have been used as a means to convey message since the time of Moses. They encompass the experiences that we face in our daily activities and the emotions that we relate with the experiences. That’s why you will find Museums and other archaeology repositories which help us in preserving the culture of people who lived centuries ago. Moreover, we usually hold several art festivals which help us in celebrating and remembering the diversity of human expression in the different forms of artistic work.
I’m rebuilding this website and I will be publishing articles which depict the different roles that arts play in our societies. Already I’ve published several interesting post and will be updating this site with more content soon. You can access the post by clicking through the various topics below.
Let me tell you about one of the things that I have lived with for as long as I can remember – my passion for art. Since my childhood, I spent every free time sketching and drawing although I was still involved in several other types of art. We used to live in a farmhouse with my parents then. I remember my time in elementary school and the numerous drawings that I made. I particularly remember one teacher who always said that I was born to draw.
To this day, I still draw my inspiration to his encouragement even though I have gone ahead t achieve much more than what he always said I would do. My situation was made better by the fact that during my childhood, almost everyone around me was involved in some form of art. My uncles loved designs as well as photography.
I learned how to use a pencil at that early age. My Sundays were characterized by several hours spent drawing and coloring my creations. One thing that I was excited about was the prospect of showing off my drawings and sketches to my friends at school, my parents and everyone else that cared to know. Before long, art was my favorite language at school. There are times when I found myself in trouble with my dad who always insisted that I should drop the obsession I had with art and focus on becoming a doctor.
It still feels that he might be disappointed because I never pursued medicine. But I also know that he is happy with what I have achieved with art. I have made several drawings of him and hanged them in his house. Whenever I visit, I see him admire them and the joy is evident in his smile. I guess it is because he is a little older now and the drawings just bring back the memories.
As I grew older, my passion for art took a new dimension. You, see, when I was still a kid, I drew just for the sake of it. My satisfaction came in the form of appreciation from my friends and the people around me. That, however, changed when I attended an exhibition in my home city of Toronto. It was an even organized by a women’s group about breast cancer awareness. Part of my role was to showcase some drawings that told the story of people that were suffering from this disease. It was meant to make women understand that they do not have to feel ashamed that they have a disease such as this one. And it worked wonders!
Since that first exhibition in Toronto, my whole life changed. I was suddenly a busy person required at various exhibitions. I also started working with a weight loss company that also required my drawings. All of a sudden, my career had picked and it was doing so fast. I knew that it is what I had always wanted to do only that I never knew how to go about it. The fact that there are people who are people who are being inspired by my art gives me joy beyond description.
I interact with people who say that they feel better since they started seeing my drawings and paintings and I feel good. It is a way of serving the community apart from the fact that it is my career too. For me, art is not something that I do part- time – I am fully into it and enjoying it.
My passion for art continues to grow every day. Recently, after several art exhibitions in the United States, I moved into a house a little distance outside the city – in the countryside. It is the same setting I enjoyed when I lived with my parents in a farmhouse. It refreshes me and every day and I enjoy my new environment, I find lots of ideas when it comes to art.
I also have found an increased desire to draw more about breast cancer and weight loss. I want to continue helping people. For me, there is no better way to do this than to use art. One day, when I have a child, I will share with them the satisfaction that I have enjoyed because I do what I like most.
