I have been a professional artist for a while now, but my art hasn’t always been so pretty. There have been many learning lessons and growing moments in my artistic journey, and I want to share with you five major turning points—five reasons my art went from bad to good:
- Years of practice and patience
- Overcoming mental blocks
- Didn’t listen to negative voices and didn’t compare
- Investing in quality supplies
- Researching and learning technique and color theory
Tune in to the video to see a sampling of my art pieces over the years!
