How to start?
Updated: Aug 29
If you know me in person, you might not imagine how shy I was when I was a child. Product of perfectionist parents and growing up during a military dictatorship, my chances were a bit low on the "coming out of my shell" department. No drawing or essay was never good enough. A disapproving look from my Mom on something I was doing or saying would paralyze me. However, I eventually managed to become the artist I am. More to come on how I got here... Generally speaking, I am not afraid anymore of my abstract images or my occasional apparent lack of clarity about how I got to a certain place with my art practice. Today I am opening up my blog with these thoughts, very personal but also very universal: How do you start? My answer is by doing it; by breaking the shell and leaping to the unknown, trusting our instincts and our wit.
Not long ago, the Cambridge Art Association (http://www.cambridgeart.org/) published my interview as a new member. You are welcome to know more about me from it: http://www.cambridgeart.org/new-member-spotlight-6/
