My name is faith, I’m 28. I have four children and a wonderful husband, I love my family so much, they keep me strong and motivated to better myself each day. Before I was a mother or a wife I was a girl who needed guidance, and encouragement. I found that threw art, even as a young child I knew if I felt down I’d start to draw. I began sketching at about 14, and I always drew myself, if it was my mood or a situation I was in. It was a stress relief, it was a way of letting those negative feelings go. I never saw myself as a painter till one day in the summer of 2008 I was at my lowest, I felt so lost and depressed and someone gave me a canvas and put paint and brushes in front me, and I let it all go, with the mix of every color I had and every emotion I needed to vent I than fell in love with painting! I found my out! Threw the years I’ve noticed I don’t take as much time to myself as I need, and though I love catering to my families needs I find it hard to give myself that moment to free myself, to breath. This contest, regardless if I won or not gave me the opportunity to guide myself threw a paintbrush again. I took my time for about 3 months off and on to really dedicate what I’ve needed, to find myself again as an artist. I love this painting I’ve given it such empowerment and emotional realization. It represents me finding myself.
