I wanted to be an artist when I was going to college for visual communication.
I wanted to be an artist while working as a graphic designer.
I wanted to be an artist when I was a stay at home mama chasing after two little munchkins.
I still want to be an artist.
I have created art on and off for years, but never seriously pursued it. I decided that would change in 2013. No more excuses. No more hiding behind other work or projects. No more fear of failure. I made a decision to make creating art a daily habit (or almost daily). Right now I'm just doing a LOT of sketching, getting my drawing muscles going again. It feels SO good. I've missed this so much.

Right now I'm doing a lot of experimenting and playing - with both mediums and subject matter - which is really my only plan for this year. Play. Try new things. Have fun.

I'm not sure where this daily art making will take me, but I know that I will enjoy the journey and I will never regret chasing this dream.
What dream are you chasing?
