Captioned video tutorial of this piece can be found on my Youtube at youtu.be/RWd0xDWSi98
I spent some time reflecting on my life, from the dysfunctional family of my childhood to my current career as an artist, and how this path has shaped me.
I guess part of my recovery is just taking in my life experiences, my emotions, the happiness and the pain, and turn them into art. And through the process, I learn and understand just a little bit more about myself and the world around me.
Art has always been a powerful outlet that helped me and others communicate our ideas and emotions. For all the aspiring and young artists out there, don't let anyone discourage you. Be it random strangers on the internet or your own parents, no one knows you better than yourself, and no one lives your life except yourself. So don't ever let anyone take that away from you, your emotions, your art, your sense of self.
This is what I have with the pictures when I create, I put into it all the energy I have, sometimes I am driven by sadness, sometimes joy, sometimes fear, sometimes inspiration ... but it is always the love I give to my work. <3
