Artist Tammineh Zanders
My name is Tammy Zanders. I'm 18 years old and I'm a young artist. Art is everything to me! Art has been my escape for the longest time. When the world around me becomes too overwhelming, when everything in my life seems to be going all wrong, I turn to art to provide me with comfort and tranquility. Art is where I can express myself without being judged and ridiculed.
Art is something I can dive into, swimming through the pages of my sketchbook, surfing my pencil along the smooth waves of the paper. I love the way art makes me feel, therefore I know that I want to pursue art in the future. Knowing that I am capable of creating such beauty, whether it is straight from my scattered imagination or straight from the power of my eyes and what I see, whatever it is, it makes me feel like I am worth something. It makes me feel as if it it possible for me to paint the future that awaits me.
The blessing of art that has been given to me, I know that I must pursue this. Because I can inspire others. I can change the way people look at things. I can create an aesthetic world for the ones who only see just black and white.
