When I was little I was very quiet and shy. I didn’t say much and didn’t have much confidence either.
Over the years I had different jobs and did different activities, but none of them really made me tick, until I started writing about art.
This little site and the guys that owned it would be the catalyst that would eventually lead me to setting my own site up and writing for myself.
It was a family run site and it was all about art. There were three people that were involved in this site, Dad Gary and his two sons Paul and Ian, they were the Thomson family .
It was Ian that had invited me to join him on this site. Ian was the arty one and his dream of being an artist was burning strong inside of him.
After writing for a while, I found that my two passions medicine and now art, were starting to come together. I was finding art tutorials that showed how art had changed peoples life’s for the better. So I started to write about this
I Wear my heart on my sleeve and not afraid to show it. I am like artists an emotional being. Someone who reads about people and then totally feels what they are going through and how they have helped themselves and others.
My ability to write straight from the heart became apparent as you read my work. I was able to take a topic and through my writing I put a bit of me into the words. The emotions and how I felt when I wrote it came out on the page. The viewers who read it could feel what I felt. I wanted to reach out to people and help other people see the magic of art and spread the word
Music has always been a big part of my life. My family are Irish and we all like having a sing song including me. Bearing this in mind I would find tutorials where there was a great pieces of music playing. To me art and music go hand in hand and I wanted to complete the whole package. I wrote some really sentimental stuff.
After a few years the site was sold and I must say it did hit me quite bad. I had dedicated two years of my life to this site. It may have belonged to someone else, but the spirit and energy was filled with me. So you can understand that when it was sold, a big piece of me went with it.
Coming to now things have changed and I have built up my confidence again and set this site up.
I have already written loads about my life, but I think a change of direction is needed and now back to art.
I want to share here what I shared on Artisan and build up a little site filled with love.
All my work still remains on the old site and is safe and you can read my work on http://www.artisanhq.com/ I hope it inspires you when you read it.
Please look forward to some new Arty stuff from me.
Art from the HeART as I call it. Much Love Ann xx
