Emily A.'s Blog (2)


I've struggled with my artistic identity for a while now. I haven't been able to branch out and brand myself as a lot of others do when seeking to follow art as a career. It's been my dream! 

My only problem is that i have a really, really boring and common name. Emily A. is as common as John Smith in some places, there's 4 at my school. :/ So the thing is i'm trying to establish something else to be me, but that something just isn't coming along.

Ach, i guess i'm just ranting.…

What is art to me?


I'm still rather new here so I guess I should tell you all a bit about myself. I'm 29 years old and going to college for art, though up until then i was all self taught as the schools i'd gone to didn't have a shred of art in them. Now that i'm going to school for it... i can say i've learned very little because of where I go... 

Sadly i'm STILL self taught lol But I do know quite a bit about art history and terms now.

Though I am learning more about 3D…
