Jessica Jones Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement An artist is said to follow the passions of the soul and not simply the sensations of the heart. These words not only correspond to the direction ones life will take, but also illustrates a profound impact that art has in it. Art is not merely what one does, it is apart of who they are. The realm and prospects of art are vast and many, however as the years progress the future appears clearer. What began as a love for drawing and drafting, grew into a new love of computers and digital work. So in searching for a career, it is important that one is able to utilize and exercise the skills possessed and learned. Although art is intricatal part of the life I am choose, it is still necessary for me to push myself to become all that I am capable of. Over the next ten or fifteen years this is the avenue of which I plan to pursue. Not simply because of the pay received, but because it allows me to partake in what I love, and introduce, and perhaps instill this love of art in others as well.
