I like a wide variety of art, from traditional to anime. No medium is off-limits; I like inks, paints, digital, photography and everything in between. I enjoy art that is evocative of emotion or tells a story. I am learning to see.

I like to think I am inversely proportional to the rest of the world. I know a little about a lot and as a result have yet to master anything. I am rediscovering my creativity; it really is like breathing (its that important). So, the art here I create in celebration of self, for myself; its my way of healing. Perhaps once I reach the point where I was "back then" I will have the confidence to seek commissions or commercial success with my art. In the meantime, I welcome criticisms as well as glowing reviews; please be generous in your honesty.

Journal History

I really enjoy exploring the galleries of other artists. Sometimes upon first glance it is fairly obvious the artist's creations have a central theme or interest in subject in common as well as a cohesive style that defines their work; to me, these artists appear to be more mature in their work. I look at my own gallery and am alternately proud and frustrated with the lack of cohesion I perceive there; on one hand I think that being able to create in several different media is a strength, however I also feel that not focusing on any one area has not allowed me to develop to my full potential in any single area.

I find myself wondering if focusing on one medium or subject will allow me to develop a cohesive style; and if I do, will this be a positive development? Or would I truly benefit from being a "Jack-of-all-trades" and slowly developing my various mediums over a longer period of time. What really is my motivation in improving? Sometimes I think that I would like to be commercially successful as an artist, but other times I think that I should just stick to doing this stuff "for fun" and if the rest is to be, then it will be; although I am pretty sure that unless I actively try at being commercially successful I won't be, I sometimes wonder if, were I to focus on one area, could I "accidentally" find success?

I would really appreciate my fellow artists' feedback on this one; how do you see this issue? Did you wrestle with it at one time and how did you overcome it? If you have had some commercial success, how did it come about?

Thanks! ^_^
