13 Year Old Lindsey Diem explains her love for art

Hi. I’m Lindsey Diem. I am 13 years old and I’m going into eighth grade. My hobbies are drawing and writing poems. Drawing is something I love to do because it makes me happy and it’s a great way to express emotions. I’ve been drawing since I was little, but when I was younger I obviously wasn’t the artist I am becoming now.

Drawing is a passion, something I love so much. When I put my granite pencil on my paper, I feel like the only person in the world. I feel like no one can stop me from what I am doing. As I feel like that, I can concentrate more but also let myself go at the same time. I feel good when I am drawing. But sometimes as I finish my sketches, I look at them and feel upset and disappointed. I’m hard on myself and see the flaws others don’t. I draw the same picture more until I feel pleased with myself. Hopefully one day I’ll learn not to be hard on myself and to not be a perfectionist all the time. I am so happy I have the talent I have and if I believe in myself, I can get even better at what I do. If I think positively, I’ll draw more freely and be happy how it turns out in the end, even if it’s not perfect.
