Recently I became a marketing manager intern at an art gallery. It's been fun and sometimes stressful but I get anxious over a lot of things so I'm still figuring it out. I'm entering my junior year of college in Dowling College and I'm still an honors student. I've been painting and drawing and writing a lot. Well today and yesterday I haven't. Sometimes you just need a break. Still, art is very much a part of me. I still wish I didn't give it up initially. However, I have realized why I gave it up to begin with, but that's personal. I will say, that no matter what, don't give up! Even if there are people who don't believe in you, don't give up! Art is an extremely subjective medium of expression and not everyone is going to like your work. On the flip side, there are many who will love it!
As for upcoming projects, I'm working on a new poetry book complete with illustrations.
Oh yes, the gallery I'm interning in is hosting an open call. I unfortunately, don't know how to upload a photo in the journal section. More details later.
