I had an introduction to art in Secondary School but I
always loved to draw. When I was a child I used to enjoy watching my cousin draw
and I always wanted to do it for myself. She obliged me and taught me what she
knew. From then on I was hooked.
I studied art when I got to Secondary School but the course was
purely fundamental. However, it did allow me to explore some of my more
creative inclinations. Later on, I gave it up in order to focus on “getting a
job” as I put it at the time. I finished school having never reengaged with art
and went on to do Liberal Arts in college (so the getting a job thing didn’t
pan out either).
Since, my exposure has been online and getting to an art
gallery when I can. The more memorable experiences would be when I went to Rome
and the first time I went to my home town’s local gallery.
I haven’t drawn consistently in a very long time and I’m
trying to get back into it at the moment. As part of this I decided I wanted to
learn more about art history and appreciation, as this is something that was
never touched on during my brief education.
I don’t know exactly what kind of art I’d like to create.
What medium I would like to use or who inspires me. I simply do not know
enough; hence the re-education from scratch. Through this I hope to develop my
taste and style over time.
