I didn’t start out as a painter. In fact, I’ve never been “into” art, and I’m awful at drawing. So, how did I become a professional artist?
You see, I got an invitation from one of my clients to his birthday party. His girlfriend had arranged a paint night with one of her artist friends.
It would have been easy to turn that down, saying to myself, “I don’t know how to paint. I am not a painter. I am not an artist,” but all I remember saying was, “Oh, sure! I’ll be there!”
The party ended up being quite exciting and fun, and I decided that painting was something I’d love to do again.
That year, I painted 5 pieces. The following year, 2018, I did 85 paintings. To date, I’ve reached around or passed over 200 paintings, and I’m excited to share them with you!
