I am not a "cookie cutter" personality. Never have been, never will be and that's ok. Lord knows I've tried, in order to make others happy. To fit in their small minded world.
This applied to my art as well. For many years I stopped because no matter what I did I could never come up with something "normal" and I began to feel ashamed because those around me made me feel as though how I thought and saw the world was wrong.
It's not. It took me till my 30's to realize that this is just me, its just how I see things and how I cope with the life around me. I wish to God I hadn't wasted all those years letting other people dictate my creativity. As far as I figure if you don't like it....don't look....simple as that.
As for me, well.....I'm doing my thing, my way and to hell with anyone who tells me otherwise.
