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…

Hi Emily, lovely to meet you. Please come and join the group and please you welcome to offer up what you have learnt so far. We would love to learn. If you know of a better free programme, let us know. There is one called Krita.
Looks your profile abstract. Did you do that one.
