The Art of Happiness

The Art of Happiness

I love many things but creating art is really therapeutic. My mom worked in the fashion industry as a designer and she inspired me to create with various medium. Taking time for yourself to think and create is calming. It’s like entering new room in your mind. It’s difficult to stop once you get going! Here are some examples of a pencil illustration ( monkey) and a mixed medium painting where I used paint, cut & glued pieces of magazine to create a landscape.

    Aeden I like your scenery painting. The mountain reminds me of the movie close encounters.

    Aeden’s art and life are truly an inspiration. He is a positive young man with a sunny disposition that I believe is expressed through his art and ever present smile.

      You’re so talented!! The monkey drawing totally appears three dimensional and is literally jumping off the page. I looked at your art work before I read the text and thought the monkey was fabricated from metal and not pencil! Both drawings are really beautiful!

    I worked with Aeden’s Mom and have heard so many stories about this amazing young man. Not only is he talented and creative, but more importantly, he is an inspiration. I am in awe of him and his mom Louisa.

      Aeden, your artwork is fantastic! I couldn’t agree more with an earlier comment that was made on how three dimensional your monkey appears, so well done!
      I also love your insight on how making art makes you calm and focused and you don’t want to stop once started; you set a good example for many of us.
      Keep up the great work!

    Arden is a talented artist. The drawing Monkey has so much dimension, He has his own unique style, a difficult task for artists to achieve. I look forward to seeing more of his work !

    This is creative and beautiful artwork. I’m so impressed with both the monkey and the landscape of mixed media. The landscape looks like Devils Tower in Wyoming- I used to live near there a long time ago and it brought back some fun memories! Thank you for sharing your talents. I look forward to seeing more:)

    You’re an amazing kid Aeden. I’m glad you are sharing your artistic talents. It’s great that you found a way to unplug and be creative. Very cool monkey picture. It looks like a mask that someone can wear. Honestly I thought it was until I read that it was a pencil drawing. Keep it up!
