Inspiration is important in any journey of discovery because it can provide the energy to push through roadblock. The journey into art, whether it starts early in life or late, whether it is a slow process or instantaneous gives flavor to the way our senses react to art.
One of my teachers and mentors and an inspiration who pushed me to new levels of understanding and enjoyment of art has been Kimberly Trowbridge. The way she interprets the world around us, her fascination with color and he gift as a teacher has brought joy to my art journey and allowed my to push past the fear of art, the fear of others seeing and judging my art and instead dive into the pure enjoyment of creating art.
As we find the paths on our life journey, find your inspirations, they are all around you and use the well.
