Art and Life

by jameswalk

There is a very distinct difference between an “artist” and someone who “likes to make art”.  An artist has no choice, they have to create and have an outlet for their creativity. Someone who “likes to make art”, as a hobby, as a pastime, could give up the process at any moment and be okay with it. (And there is nothing wrong with that, there are some amazing and talented people out there who like to make art.)  But an “artist” has a higher calling and a very intense sense of duty to express themselves creatively and to inspire others. This is a responsibility that they don’t take lightly. Here is a portrait of an artist.  Whether it’s her skateboarding style or the newest artwork Anna has been creating you can get a very intense feeling of someone who is genuinely making the best work that they possibly can and creating something truly unique and inspiring!
