I don't exactly know what a blog is supposed to be. I always picture some version of a diary. When asked to do one for my Studio Art Practices class I was fearful;lost. Following the prompts I was able to at least think about what to do. I chose to start the blog in such a way that the reader can learn about me and I can knock out an assignment at the same time. This is the Body and Soul entry. I am not one for drawing or creating a self portrait as that is not who I am. I decided to do this in a way many of my teachers have asked me to do this before. I have provided a few images of me (at the braves game, playing volleyball, and with my best friend and boyfriend), a few pieces of my art work showing the media I like and what I like to do, and finally my inspiration and support network. Without my family and friends, and yes my dog, I would never have decided I love art as much as I do.
I love to cook, paint, play volleyball, and create digital works. I work at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, which has provided me with much inspiration as the whole place is like a creative playground. Just putting together a collage of things that represent me didn't seem entirely right. I decided to edit the combination by using my graphics tablet to write and draw on the image. Once I did that, I felt like the image was more personal and felt that I could leave this entry as is.
