Writing About Art

Last year, one of the essays I wrote for Hello Humans was about accepting myself and declaring myself an artist. I had been many things: an accountant, a teacher, a restaurant owner to name a few - and I always made things. But, I was slow to recognize the soul-wrenching desire I had to make art. I'd like to hear from other artists about their experiences - my thinking is broad - I'm interested in process, idea, design creation, execution style (slow & methodical, compulsive, and the dozens more I can't even think of). This is a subject that truly fascinates me as I am from a family of all kinds of artists and musicians. I would truly LOVE to hear your story. And I would love it if you include the "How I Became an Artist" part.Here's a small part of mine:HindsightSee More

Profile Information

 

After retiring from 30 years in education, I discovered, shockingly, that I had been a workaholic. I had always written and made things and said for a long time, "I make stuff" before I settled into an ease with calling myself "an artist" with any conviction. I live in a small community in Texas called Hopewell and create and paint in our log cabin as well as at my studio in Huntsville, Texas (@HeatonHouseStudio). I write for Hello Humans, contribute to The Huntsville Item (@Kat Bailey on Facebook) and post my writing on Medium. I love to upcycle and spend a little time each month combing resale shops for inspiration and unusual art (@SassyKatStuff).  Life as an artist is good.  My website: hopewellkat.com is updated as I can get to it; but, I'm found on Instagram, Twitter, and lots of other social media sites as HopewellKat, Hopewell Kat, and Kat Bailey.

On being/becoming an artist and acknowledging the fragile moments, steps and stumbles on the path to an intimate understanding of my journey thus far. My most recent essay on Hello Humans.

HINDSIGHT: An artist who always was

I have a dilemma.

While updating inventory in my space at a co-op shop, a flash of horror came over me as I looked at several…

thanks Kat    I agree, I used to have difficulty drawing a horse facing forward and I'm afraid the only way to get it right is by practising it over and over. It will come, I promise. Have a great day     Ed
