Hey guys, I'm not using my DeviantART much any more. Come back me out at my tumblr!
Art Tumblr (NSFW CONTENT!!!)
My name is Lis, and I am an artist-in-training. I'm currently going to an arts high school, and trying to get into an art college.
I have only considered myself an artist for approximately two years. In the tenth grade I took an Advance Placement Studio Art class. Up until that year, I was sincerely planning on becoming a novelist. My teacher inspired me to work hard, and achieve the artistic goals which he laid out for me, and then I laid out for myself.
My only issue with writing an artist statement, is that I do not feel like an artist yet. I am still an artist in training. Although I strive to become an artist, and I work hard towards this goal everyday, I still feel far from achieving it. Perhaps I will not even be a real artist until years after the day I die.
For now, I make art, and try my best to incorporate pieces of me within every assignment. I think one day I will figure out a style that fits me perfectly, but for now everything I do is an artistic experiment.
