More Than Pictures

I think there are a ton of reasons of why I have such a passion for art and why I loved it so much as my main source of money back in my home country. When I look at a piece of art, I see more than just a pictures on a piece of paper. I see someone pouring their heart and soul onto that piece of paper and everything that they believe in is somehow represented on it.

This idea goes for any form of art as well. I am talking about movies, music, photography, poetry, writing, and anything else that someone makes with their creative mindset.

I don’t think there is a person out there reading this who would disagree with me. Who doesn’t feel a sense of connection and just a happiness like no other when they put on their favorite CD or watch their favorite movies.

For someone like me, it goes deeper than just appreciating what something sounds like or if I enjoyed a movie or not. I look at everything from the eyes of an artist and someone who feels a passion for expressing themselves in these ways like nothing else in my life. There are days where I don’t even feel like getting out of bed and artistic expression is the only thing that keeps me going. I still dream about pursing my love of poster art for a job but it is just not as easy as the movies like to make it here in America is it?

My Life Now

Now that you got a little introduction on where this idea came from and where I came from I can tell you a little bit about what my life is like now here in America. By the way, none of these pictures are my work but they are along the lines of what I like and what I used to make in Belgium :)

So unfortunately it isn’t as easy to make money from poster art as it was in my home country so I have not been able to pursue any kind of real job with art, but I do still occasionally sell my pieces if anyone happens to see them or if my friends try to sell them for people but it isn’t enough to pay any bills. I have been married to my amazing husband for almost 8 years now and he is my entire world.

He is a very high up project manager for a roofing company in my town and if all goes well, will be becoming a partner in the whole company. So for the most part my husband is in charge of the looks of our house from the outside and I am in charge of most of the decorations and art pieces on the inside :)

I am totally OK with this for my obvious love of art and I have multiple pieces of ours around the house. My husband has been so supportive of me and I don’t know where I’d be without him :)

Hello America!

Hey everyone and thank you for checking out my page here at Poster Art Plaza. It has been a while since I have decided to work on this page and a lot has changed since then! For anyone new, I used to live in Belgium and this is where my love of art started and had my own business selling poster art of all different varieties.

Art is something that I have always had a passion for and still continue to do to this day, but I no longer pursue it as my main profession. It isn’t quite as easy trying to pull it off and make it as a poster artist here in America :)

This is still something that consumes most of my free time and I do sell my pieces to anyone who I think genuinely enjoys and appreciates them, but I really don’t go out of my way to advertise them anywhere and most of the people that I have sold them to are in my group of family or friends.

Life has been amazing for me so far here in America and I want to bring this page back as a way of keeping my interest in poster art alive and to talk about some of the great things that have happened to me since my move.
