Back in the baby class, I loved drawing and modelling lessons by Mrs.Kimani.
When in the primary school, I helped in drawing of diagrams and maps from different classes. This started back in class three. As when I joined high school, I took art and design but it was a self taught class for the teacher never came to classes except during exams which was at the end of it all, theoretical exams!
Due to discouragements form parents that art did not pay anything, so I took something else. I. C. T in college one year after high school. In many times, I didn't enjoy the classes like I did expect, that sometimes I posed and asked myself, what I am I here for?.
I chose to quit... and life got more hard. Loosing friends and rejection of father's approval, I kept on painting and drawing figures that also made me doubt myself too. Then one day, I picked a Thomas Baker video tutorial from a dustbin when I worked as a dust-boy and it got me going.
Though I had learn a lot in college, I wish I had fit but I did not.... but in Art I was!
Thanks to Thomas Bakers painting tutorial videos. I learn something and get encouragement every time I watch any of them.And I hope to go to University some day and take fine art.
