Surviving and Thriving during a Difficult time

During this difficult time it’s hard to know how to even endure, let alone thrive. But you’re going to be okay, not only that, your art will be better than ever before.

Moments like this are why you decided to live a life of creativity. Through the many challenges you’ve faced over the course of your life, you chose to channel your feelings into making art. The ways you interpret the world, and how you decide to express how you feel about it creatively, is all yours. You can’t control the world around, you but you can control how you respond, how you describe your feeling visually in order to lift others, or relate to others, who are facing the same struggles.

You became a Visual Artist in part because you wanted the freedom to express yourself, to answer to no one. And now you can trust yourself to draw and paint and make art everyday to get you through, and be a leader by sharing it with others.

On the other side of this, people will thank you for sharing art that uplifted them or made them feel like they weren’t alone.
