I recategorized myself as an artist on social media. I previously categorized myself as a comic, following my resolution at age 30. I felt like I had to commit to a chosen artform. I now see myself as a multidisciplinary artist. artist: (noun) a person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, novelist, poet, or filmmaker. "An artist is a person engaged in an activity related to creating art, practicing the arts, or demonstrating an art." I like to think of an artist as a professional who creates specialized works of information, food for the soul.
I always loved classical music. It was all I would listen to growing up, and I was the only one in my family who did. When I was 20, I started composing for the very first time and discovered my talent. I grew more passionate than ever before. I envisioned myself as a classical artist. I wanted to release singles and albums just like any other music artist. I wanted to hear my music played on Classical 96.3 FM. I wanted to make classical popular again. I believed I could do it. It was more than a decade ago. Life got in the way and I didn't compose much since. I am now making full circle - doing what I set out to do back when I first moved to Hamilton in 2009 - brand myself as a classical artist and bring back to life the great old genre!
