Hello I’m Nobody!
Literally I’m nobody. I don’t say this from a perspective of negativity or deprecation. I say it from the perspective that I’m an average person. Just trying to make my way in this life. I’m not famous, I’m not a trained artist, I’m not a CEO of a company, etc. There are many things I am, such as a parent, a mentor, a friend, a companion, a dedicated worker, a life learner and MORE! So, if I’m nobody why am I writing this? Well imagine a world where learnings and experiences weren’t shared. Think about how much would be lost if people weren’t courageous enough to share those learnings and experiences. So, that is why I am doing this.
This is my journey. Yours will be different and unique. So, what prompted me to take this journey. Well, it really came down to two things: (1) Realizing that you fail 100% of the time at things you don't try, and (2) Knowing that life is finite. This journey has led me to finding passion in both art and doing Audiobook narrations/voice over.
I've absolutely fallen in love with audiobook narration/voice over. It's incredibly exciting! It's also very challenging. I've got my studio setup, professional grade equipment and software and have started putting myself out there. More to come on this journey.
With my art, like I've said, I'm not a trained artist. In fact, I don’t even see myself as an artist. Usually, I just describe myself as someone that is “better than the average bear” at drawing and painting. (By the way, for those not familiar with that quote you need to watch some Yogi Bear cartoons and yes, I know his quote is “smarter than the average bear” still similar concept - LOL). I’ve been painting with heavy body acrylic paints since. I can honestly say that I’ve found that something that doesn’t feel like ‘work’, that is peaceful, and allows me just to be me.
