For a while now, my father would tell me, “If you get to do something you love and get paid for it, then you will be set for life”. For most of my life, I took this only as an odd statement. This was mainly due to the fact that I didn’t know what I wanted to be for a while. In elementary school I wanted to be a firefighter, then in middle school, I chose wrestler or web designer. High school was when I finally got a hold of my own creativity and thrive to achieve in the art world. I began testing out multiple concentrations and methods. I would create jewelry out of beads and metals, paint a landscape then scan it and work on it in Photoshop, and even merge wire sculptures with leather to create masks. My many projects have shown me that I have finally found a footing in the world of visual art, especially in 3D art and crafts. On top of that, I have come to terms with how dangerous our world is and of my own mortality. So as a result, I would love to not only work towards improving, displaying, and selling my creations, but also teaching the art to others in an attempt to share this wonderful trade. I will just need to not lose faith in my work and continue improving myself. If I am able to achieve this, I will be set for life.
