In this week's assignment, our instructor Tam, has us altering a children's (hard page) story book. She asked us to find a single picture of ourselves under the age of 3. "Thanks mom for taking the time to find this little beauty" :) Next we were to reflect back on our childhood and reinvent them by writing down what we wished for ourselves as young children.
Having a Big family with three brothers and an older sister, sometimes meant sharing mom and dad's attention. Although I had a happy childhood and wouldn't trade those times for anything, I do remember sometimes feeling invisible, many times thinking of ways to standout from my siblings. I suppose this was the beginning of my creative expression as an artist...i remember drawing pictures as a child and sharing them with my parents, hearing their loving words always filled me with such pride. I guess some things never change!
