Art Talk | Alma
Our Featured Artist is Alma.
How long have you been involved with this art process at Baptist Housing?
Even before I came to Shannon Oaks, I've been involved with music and poetry for 50 plus years.
Who do you enjoy sharing art with?
I do it mostly for my own enjoyment but I did run a creative writing club at Shannon Oaks for about 5 years. It was well attended and we enjoyed each others' work.
Why do you like being an artist?
I like being an artist because it gives me a feeling of personal accomplishment and enjoyment of creating. I also like that it brings joy to others.
Who first inspired or taught you this craft?
It was self-initiated from childhood onwards.
Any advice for future artists?
Always try. If you feel a desire to do something, do it! You'll never know until you try.
