Burning Question for the artist #3 / by Jennifer Davey


How or when did you discover you were an artist?

This sounds kind of silly, but I want to say last year. I was taking a painting class in Boulder and the entire class was just painting away. I was too. I felt so natural, so alive, so happy and I thought, hey, maybe I really am an artist. I have always been someone who creates, but this moment felt like, wow, this feels really right and maybe this is who I am meant to be. Over the last 10 years, I have been to driven to "be an artist" whatever that means, but this moment in time was a recognition of something about the core of my being, and just accepting hey this is a part of who I am, not someone I may or may not become.
