Hello!! My name is Malaysia Lumpkin. I am young and on this journey to figure out who I really am. I am a proud grad, a proud mother, and a proud artist!!!
I remember one day I drew this awful piece. To me I thought it was ugly, disappointing, and disturbing. I ended up showing the people around me the piece that I drew. They looked shocked and amazed. One person told me that the piece was beautiful, unique, and different! That one person that told me that lifted my head so high, that I haven't judge my artwork every again. And I doubt that I will..
I had seen a quote (can't remember exactly how it went), but the meaning never left my mind. It said (not exactly) "You can look at your work and say that it's ugly, disappointing, unsatisfying, and disturbing, but someone else can look at it and say THIS IS ART"
Since then that change my view on all the work that I do. And I'm extremely proud of my work!
To all the viewers of my pieces or even artist, don't ever discriminate yourself or doubt your work, because everything is art even you! I love you guys and thank you for being who you truly are... Now it's my turn to figure out who I really am as an artist!!!
