  1. I've never not known.......

    To me drawing and painting is like walking or breathing......I've never understood why there are people who can't, it seems so natural, so normal!

    So to answer your question: The moment I was of an age that I could understand your question I knew........

    1. I can't pinpoint an age, because I've always been drawing. All my homework from school had artwork incorporated into it. I do remember that I drew city skylines with mountains & sunsets in the background. I would draw this over & over. I used to have clothesline art exhibits in my backyard all the time. My life revolved around art. All my Christmas & Birthday presents were art related. Like Robert Paul said, "It was like walking or breathing & I too thought everyone did it."

  2. Probably around 5 years. I've always had a pencil in my hand and as Robert says it's like Breathing. I could no more stop drawing than I could breathing. My Mother loved cleaning my pre-school masterpieces off the wall. :0)

  3. I remember only being interested in art from the time I was 5. There were photos of me surrounded with clay sculptures. I got to have my first drawing class when I was 7, because I begged my mom to let me go. I went to art workshops as soon as I was old enough to walk to our community center in Pacific Palisades. It's just a part of life.

  4. I think, like the others, I remember being interested in art as early as I can remember anything. I loved drawing. It wasn't until a volunteer art teacher challenged me to draw my own shoe that I realized I was actually pretty good at it. Life has gotten in the way of art a lot over the years, but I've loved it all along.

  5. I became interested in high school, but didn't think I was good enough. I didn't really get serious about it until I was in my 50's.

  6. My mom wrote in my baby book, "Kelly is an artist. She draws very detailed pictures." She knew much earlier than I did... I have a worksheet from kindergarten (age 5 or 6?) that, when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I replied, "An Artist." Here I am now, 27 years old, and still wanting to be an artist when I grow up. Some things never change.

  7. I've always loved and wanted to be an artist but as I didn't think I could draw, thought it was impossible. Well, I found out at age 69 (this year) that not only can I draw but I can paint! It just took one person to recommend a drawing book and I haven't stopped since! I think it's made me happier than anything I've ever done!

  8. As long as I can remember I've always wanted to be an artist. My Mum was creative and always very supportive. For one reason and another I stopped being creative in my late teens/early twenties but rediscovered it just as I turned 30... wish Mum could have seen as she was partly responsible yet again!

    My girls are all the same, my youngest is always telling people she is an artist... at 4 :D

  9. I was in kindergarten when I first made the declaration that I was "going to be an artist when I grown up!"

  11. Around the age of 7 when my uncle from Connecticut would come In with colored pencils, sketchbooks, paints and we would sit fit hours on the couch while he taught me how to draw.

  13. 14. When I was picked by my teacher to represent my school in an art contest. I remember feeling really proud that my art was 'appreciated'.

  14. I can't remember a time when I didn't have a crayon or a marker or a pencil or a paintbrush in my hand. It's as natural to me as breathing.

  15. I started drawing when i was about 3 years old.

  16. 30, I tried to be sensible and do 'proper' jobs, but as they say 'find a job you love and never work a day in your life again!' so I did and it's art!

  17. I really remember in the 3rd grade, when our class had to drawn and color on a folder for our class. The teacher was going to pick 3 kids who did the best folders and they got to go to Friendly's for ice cream with the Principle! My folder was one of the chosen ones! How excited was I? I drew my dog with her paws against a tree in the back yard, barking up the tree. She had a dog house and everything. I knew right then that I had a talent for drawing.
