Oh wow, here we go.
Hello. My name is Jackie and I am a recovering closet artist.
Dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
For years I had lived afraid of anyone seeing my doodles and art pieces, but needing desperately to make them. Then I moved a bit on from that but still clung to the idea that all artists must live in poverty. That silly belief is exactly what has kept me from living my full truth.
Finally, this year, I’ve decided I am moving into a different place. I want to feel joy as often as possible, and if creating art is where I am truly me, then that is where I should be, right? Isn’t that true for all of us?
I’ve attempted a couple of blogs in the past, I’m not gunna lie. But I end up getting bored of them, or feel like I SHOULD be writing about things that just aren’t coming natural to me.
This is going to be different.
I’m sick of being something I’m not or FOCUSING on things that don’t feel yummy, and passionate and full to me, like art.
Ha! So there you go.
I’ll show what I’m working on, describe where I’m headed (even just for that day), and share bits of my life. Because why not? I’m ready to be inspired by life and live fully in art every single day.
