Why am I an Artist? I was born this way. I had no choice in the matter. But seriously, I believe Art chooses Artists not the other way around. Everyone is born with a creative spark yet, being chosen one also has to choose. I chose to pursue an artistic life early on and continue to choose it every day.
Why is art important? I believe Art is important because it promotes balance both in the individual and in the culture. Studying The Arts, expands an individual’s thinking, perception and creativity. Nurturing creativity fulfills the individual and consequently benefits humanity as a whole. Creativity is needed in every field and needs nurturing in every human being.
