Albany has no commercial gallery. So to have my paintings on display and for sale at the Albany Visitor Centre is a Very Good Thing. They went up yesterday. Hooray!
To celebrate this step towards my dream life as a professional artist, I have decided to change a few things.
One of these changes is to my instagram name - a clarification and declaration - to @samanthadennisonartist.
Labelling myself as an Artist does not come easily. For many, many years I have been a Teacher, and I still am, with the work I do as the Education Facilitator to a group of determined young mummies one day a week. But with painting taking up more of my creative time, and with my painting now in a public arena, it seems a good idea to make it more official.
I am a Teacher. I am also an Artist.
My family tell me it was always so.
Life is good.
Thanks, Robert, for the saying.
I'm choosing not to change my blog name yet, but I will be changing a couple of other things about it soon.
I have also changed my Facebook address to coincide: facebook.com/samanthadennisonartist
I like to knit, too. Obviously.
