Describing and talking about my art work is something I have often struggled with. While I feel as though I can write about it competently, speaking can be more of a challenge, as I feel sometimes I get mixed up in my thought process, and am not articulating my message clearly. During this, I took time beforehand to organize my thoughts and plan out what I wanted to say, without scripting it entirely. This planning process gave me more confidence because I gelt prepared. In the future, I want to get better at speaking competently and comfortably about my work by expanding my artistic vocabulary and gaining a better understanding of what goes into a strong artist statement.
