Hello and welcome to the Carve Fin Art Blog
Hello and welcome to the Carve Fin Art Blog.
This is the first blog post for the site and I’d like to start as I mean to go on, so you will see that I write this very much with my heart on my sleeve.
My aim for this blog is that I would like it to become a record of what it’s like working as an artist and more specifically, an artist who struggles with aspects of their mental health and how they are learning to become stronger and more resilient, due the knowledge they are gaining through creating and selling art.
I also want it to act as a diary, so that in the future I can look back on it and see how far I’ve come, both in terms of my surf fin art and my wellbeing and it would be great if you’d like to join me on that journey as it continues.
I hope that over time, other people will also be able to learn lessons from this blog, that they are then able to apply to their own lives and that together we can grow into healthier, happier, more fulfilled people.
Finally, I not only plan to show you the behind the scenes of my thoughts and the cogs that turn in my mind, but also an in depth look into the process behind the creation of my surf fin art in my studio too. This will include things like tutorials and videos, for those who wish to give creating art a go themselves. I’ve learned so much on my journey as an artist over the last few years, through some amazing people who have shared their knowledge with me and I would love to be able to give something back and who knows, maybe inspire someone else. Whether that’s to just have a go at something, or to try and follow their dreams, either would be great.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and here’s to moving forward!
