I count myself as lucky... I have artistic blood. My 'oupa' used to draw the most spectacular drawings of people and wildlife. I always used to sit in his lazy-boy and go through his sketchbooks and imagined myself doing the same when I was older. My dad has a creative heart - always made up riddles for us to solve and drew the funniest little sketches to make us laugh.
I still remember MY first drawing, I was super proud - Lillies in a vase. When I went to high school, I started drawing with charcoal and knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life: Create things and try to better myself in every way possible. Blue Jam is just that - We create things and every day we go back to the drawing board to make sure that we, as the artists, and you, our clients get the best of the best.
A quite popular quote going around these days says:
"When buying from an artist or a maker, you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of pure joy. YOU AREN'T JUST BUYING A THING. You're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about."
I love that!
