“An artist has the ability to create an entire world out of an idea.”
Anna Pederson has dedicated her life to learning how to create stories out of paint. She is a self taught Canadian artist who gathers inspiration from travel and adventures.
It’s been an incredible journey to dig into this passion and discover the potential of paint. I believe that an artist should give themselves the freedom to explore new ideas and continue to grow in their ability for their entire life.
As I started in my career as an artist, I was concerned about creating content that would please others. Not only did I want to make money, but I was very conscious of what people thought of me. I was putting myself in a box, not allowing creative thoughts to take hold. However, when I reached age 25 I started to look outside my own personal journey, and took advice from other artists. It is mind blowing to look at what others have created!
I decided to make a change in my approach to art, and proceeded to create Vessel of Ideas.
My encouragement to any artist is this: paint what you love! You will do well if you enjoy what you are doing.
I have come to the point in my art journey where I would like to share what I’ve learned with others. My next “chapter” includes teaching art in Niger Africa, and running a YouTube channel.
Keep learning, enjoy the world around you, inspire others… and create!
