    Art is my therapy, my way to de-stress, plus I get to work from home doing it. I can be there whenever my kids need me, my hours are flexible. Art is just a part of me, I wouldn't be me without it

    I have a very active imagination, so art helps me express what I see in my mind’s eye. Without expressing my imagination through drawing and writing, my imagination will start to feel “crowded” as I try to keep everything in my head, and this blocks the flow of new ideas and causes me to forget good old ideas. Art is how I document this imaginary “other world” in my daydreaming that’s filled with fictional characters, creatures, places and stories.

    Art helps me tell a story, without writing a word.

    Practicing art has helped accept failure in all parts of life.

    Practicing art helps me to learn self-compassion, flexibility, and problem solving in a way that expands into my every day life. If I mess up on problem, it's just a "happy little mistake". No need to beat myself up, just Keep working on it or erase it and try again. The end result of an art session is always a delightful moment for me because I'm learning, growing, expressing, and manifesting my ideas all in a pretty short amount of time.

    Where do I start? *laughs* Art (whether it's through my drawings or my photography) gives me the space to express myself and helps me decompress, relax and feel at peace in the world no matter how chaotic it is. That's the straight(ish) answer pretty much. It's also very much part of my weekly routine. Mondays and Tuesdays, for one, would be utterly unbearable for me if I wasn't either drawing or out with my camera for a walk taking photos when I don't have other priorities. I've been going to an art club at one of my local libraries since May and it's been brilliant for me. It's only an hour or so each Tuesday evening, but even just that brief amount of time is all I need to get my feelings out and jotted down into my sketchbook. Not only that, but I've made some good like-minded friends through this group too who I can learn from and get to know, and that's all kinds of good... no denying that!

    Art is an aspiration for me. I deeply believe that it's an inherently human pursuit to create things and to enhance life. I'm just starting out, just stretching my legs. That's the essence of life: starting something over and over again. Beautiful things emerge. I want that.

    Wether it's drawing or playing my bass guitar, creating art gets me out of my mind. Spending too much time in thought and over-thinking things, is undesirable for a healthy brain. Finally science is putting data behind that important point. Art for the wellbeing of our minds is gaining wider understanding and appeal.

    art is a fun way to learn things, but I do art to get away from my bad problems. It plays a deep role in my life

    It always amazes me when a small dot or line on a paper can eventually add up to an image I can recognize. I don't have to be perfect, I can start over, and using pencils/pens they are ready for me when I am ready.

    Art for me has been a self-reflection tool. I find myself recreating things that intrigued me as a child. It evolved into me realizing I should keep that inner child flame alive. We rush to grow up only as an adult to wish we could relive those moments as child.

    Art holds a significant place in my life, serving as a mirror reflecting emotions, experiences, and perspectives. It's a catalyst for introspection, allowing me to explore and understand the intricacies of human existence. Through art, I've learned empathy, resilience, and the importance of embracing creativity. It has shaped my personal growth by providing avenues for self-expression, fostering connections with others, and inspiring continuous learning and evolution. Whether through visual arts, literature, music, or any other form, art has been a guiding force, enriching my journey and expanding my horizons. For NFT development serveries Visit

    Art... where do I even start? I loved art when finger-painting at the age of 2 and a half, to my first box of 24 crayon at 5, to my first sketch book when I was at 7. Art for me is a way to breathe, and escape the world that keeps getting darker and will bring you down, and to just have fun!!! My advice to young and budding artists (like myself) take critics, but not hate-mail. Accepting HATE will only decrease your current skill, trust me I know. -Grant
