I’m proud to announce that I will be having my work shown at a gallery for the very first time. It’s been a challenging journey for me to find the confidence I needed to complete a painting or even a series. As a child I’ve always liked to create. I was encouraged and supported to keep doing it up until I chose it as my career choice and chose not to finish school. I faced a lack of support from the people around me which made it so discouraging to go through with my creative outlet. On social media I saw a combination of popular successful artists with amazing work and people who did the bare minimum of drawing on a piece of printer paper and receive support from so many people. I compared myself to other artists I admired, and felt I would never be recognized or good enough, putting more strain on my confidence to go through with my art. Constantly questioning myself, am I even good enough? Why don’t I receive the same support when I post ? Eventually I just stopped caring and realized, with due time I will gain the audience that applies to my work and slowly but surely, I am. I also struggled with creating ideas and finding what style Applies to me. For a long time I would imitate other people’s styles and techniques and nothing would come out the way I imagined. I never trusted myself and my own hand until recently and now that I am gaining confidence I am creating art that is authentic to who I am and what I represent. I was and still am struggling to stop being so hard on myself and think freely with my art. To complete art, I’m learning means to have confidence in yourself ; and, being able to complete work for a gallery, forced me to go through with ideas I doubted for a long time. In the end, I really am pleased with the way my work came out and I’m forever grateful to be featured at Wallworks. I’m looking forward to working on new projects I have already planned for the future. I hope that with my art I’ll be able to connect with many people and also bring others together. This is only the beginning.
