Art, Heart and Healing Assignment 2

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!
