But seeing as how this is my first blog post on blogspot, I figured I'll tell you guys a little bit about myself.
My name is Sarah. I am a 21 year old college student in Florida studying Psychology and American Sign Language. I have a boyfriend of 3 years, Kristopher. I used to be an Art minor but I realized that I truly do not like art teachers telling me what to draw, how to draw and basically controlling my passion. Because without further adieu, that is who I am. I am an artist. A free thinking, unprogrammed and raw artist. I am not a still life drawing, sketching art school artist. Art is basically what this blog will be about (unless I don't want to do it that way. Lol. We'll see down the road.) But for now, it will be for art.
I am a creator on a budget. Literally. No money. I'm that typical broke college kid. I find most of my stuff at garage sales, I never buy ANYTHING full price from craft stores and if I do, it's usually $1 or under. I'm not cheap or frugal by any means. I like expensive things...for small prices. :) I love watercolors (tube, pan, crayon, pencil. anything) more then most art supplies. Scrapbooking papers make me happy (especially when Michaels has 6/$1). Spray paints are my most recent love. They're fun to add effects to and I guess you could classify me as a 'Mixed Media Artist.' but I don't like labels.
I started art journaling when I was a freshmen in college. I had found 2 of Donna Downey's books at a garage sale and from then on, I have been a creator. My first art journal was a book from Dollar Tree. The pages ended up giving out on me after a few tries. I still have her though on my bookshelf to remind me where I started almost 3 years ago. I have always been an artist. From the time I can remember, I have always had a sketchbook (they're sitting in the garage in a box actually) and I am now distracted with the nurse in my father's hospital room.
I will be back tomorrow. I will show you all some of my work!
Think.Believe.Create. (that's my motto. Because if you think it you believe it and if you believe it you can create it.)
