I’m a self-taught calligrapher, and I’ll be the first to admit that my technique isn’t quite up to par…but this piece is still important to me because of the quotation. Samuel Johnson’s words were very helpful while I was practicing art therapy, and working through some personal issues.

What quotes or sayings have helped you through tough times?

“Every artist…”


This piece combines some of my favorite elements: calligraphy, water soluble pastels, red and yellow together, quotations and roses.

This quote also speaks to the heart of who I am. Having practiced a lot of art therapy, I know all too well how true this quote is.
