When I was in first grade I wanted to be an Artist. At grade school my classmates hovered over my desktop and were amazed by my drawings. It was at that moment I realized that I possessed a talent, my confidence grew, my ego became strong, and soon I knew that art and creativity were to become my passion. When I walk through museums today I am engaged with the artist and see myself as an extension of their works. It is this connection that drives me into the future where I see future artists stand by my self portrait and take a picture with me. Inspiration comes from others so go see the great artists of the past and create the jewels of the future.
