30 years of ART and still going strong

It has just occurred to me that I have been a working artist for 30 years.I started at 15 years of age at Suki’s Hair Salon in Vancouver starting my training on the weekends and moving into full time at 16.I wanted to be a hair artist since I was 7.After my apprenticeship I had the opportunity to go to Vidal Sassoon in Los Angeles where I did intense training.I went back to Suki’s and begin to build my clientele up which lead to lots of teaching,print work for magazines,wedding,fashion shows,commercials and videos and working with modeling agents.In the mid 90’s I had a very bad snowboarding accident which ended up opening more doors as I began the road to adding make-up artistry and fashion styling  to my resume and going to school at Blanche Macdonald.At the end of the 90’s I tried my hand at painting taking nite classes at Emily Carr.Today I still do all my trades concentrating on multimedia art from painting,photography,hair,make-up,fashion,writing,gardening and playing music with my band the Abbie Hoffman Society.I turn 45 this year and its been a life of creating on many different canvas,using many different style of brush’s,and loving every minute.If I have made you smile ,think,laugh or feel good about yourself I feel I have done my job.I continue to create art daily in one medium or another supporting myself with the loving encouragement of my friends,partner,and zoo.I also believe everything is art .Thank You for a wonderful life in the arts that just continues to grow.Laura Balducci
