In our earlier years we were always asked what we wanted to be when we grew up. As children whatever we said did not necessarily have to make sense because we are kids who do not yet understand the world of crazy we live in. However, we are still expected to say something highly respected like a doctor or lawyer. What if you are someone who has always performed better in the world of creativity? Maybe instead of being able to save lives, you could help entertain one. Your talent can be recognized by many and provide a muse to others as well. Its always a plus when you can do something you love as a profession.  I have the pleasure of knowing someone who has never let their creative mind run out of gas. Doudgy is a super talented and driven artist living in Springfield Maryland. He’s one of many artists that successes in telling a story through his painting and drawings making them come to life. He is a great example for us young kids trying to figure out what to do with our lives. He figured it out at such a young age. That gives the rest of us hope. It’s  always easier to use examples like this to help make your own decisions so the following is Dew’s exact words on who he is, inspirations and the importance of art to him.

“Every child is born an artist, born with a mind filled with creativity. Unfortunately, when the child reaches a certain age(6-8), they begin to lose interest. Without the right motivation & inspiration, the child will not feel the urge to make art.We are all artist, but we just need to unleash the creativity within.

I am Dew the artist & I’ve been an artist since birth, from doodling on the walls, to coloring outside the lines on paper. At the age of 6, i use to watch my uncle who was an artist paint portraits using oil paint & Graphite. He took the time to show me how to properly draw the facial structure using guidelines. He taught me just that, & I’ve been drawing portraits since. I now create figurative portraits, & a series of pieces that tells a story.

I am currently 18 years of age, Graduated from paint branch high school in 2016 & i am a full time artist. I am open for commissions, I do contract artwork, and I’m also an illustrator.

I am currently illustrating 2 books, a children’s book and a book of poetry. I’ve been featured in about 2 galleries the past year, participated in 6 art showcases.

I am inspired by my surroundings,Trials & tribulations,emotions, people,nature, & love.

Inspiration is always around, it can be the smallest thing, we just have to pick up on it and grab it as soon as we do. Don’t let your inner artist die, add fuel to it, feed it with inspirations”. -Dew
