Creative Freedom


“Creativity is a drug I cannot live without” – Cecil B. DeMille

“Every child is an artist, the problem is staying an artist when you grow up” – Pablo Picasso

I’d rather be extremely opportunistic in my creativity, than to explain to my children why I never lived out my passions in life. To have to explain why I dreamed of being an artist but never pursued it. Why I decided to not listen to my heart and follow everyone’s idea of a dream for me than my own.

This is something that I couldn’t live with. I’m completely enamored with the many areas of art. Art being such a vast array of cultural influences, broad subjects and unfiltered subjective imagery.

This is why I am involved and pursuing different areas of art. I have always envisioned a life as an artist, but never had the influence, confidence, or purpose in mind to start.

My artistic background can be measured by my poetic writing and forethought, artistic drawing ability, love of historical art and education of, photographic abilities and education of, and creative crafting ability; from sketching designs to hand sewing and crafting.

These are all abilities and passions that I am actively pursuing in my adult life. I decided that I would not destine my future to lack my blessing of artistic abilities. I would not be able to tell my daughter, to pursue her passions regardless of what society “thought” she should do, because I had not.

My creative freedom is what I want and need in life. I do it all for my legacy and what I would like to finalize in my life as my artistic journey. To actually fulfill my hearts desire, without negative influence or persuasion in my life.

So what might look like a cluttered, unorganized, or erratic life to an outsider, is actually my creative freedom.

My artistic journey.

My legacy.

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” Steve Jobs

      Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I have so much more to say and I’m a little hesitant but I’ve found that writing relieves my inner struggle. I’ve been writing for awhile and it’s great to find other like minded individuals blogging as well. Especially us brown curly girls 🙂

      Thanks girl 🙂
