Anna Holmes, Manning Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement I 'm always nervous when it comes time to enter a show, my stomach knots up, and I question my talent left and right. Having no formal training as an artist, I often feel like an outsider or like a fish out of water. But I love what I do, and the few awkward moments are worth it, when I'm lucky enough to win.
"I try not to limit myself to only one art form, for my soul knows not the limits set by others. If my mind has the ability to imagine it, then my hands have the power to bring it to life."
Ones life should not be judged by levels of formal education, but measured by a persons true level of intellect, creativity, ability to set and achieve goals .
