The spirit of man is the candle of the LORD, searching all the inward parts of the belly. Proverbs 20:27
My name is Terrin Sharp I was born and raised in West Englewood of Chicago, IL I have three beautiful children that I'm raising in the admonition of the Lord. My passion is living for the Lord, my children and helping others who are oppressed and discarded find hope in the only one who gives us freedom and true purpose in this life.
Art has been a passion of mine since I was in grammar school. I would finish my classwork in a timely fashion to allot enough time to sketch. I sat at my kitchen table of my home for hours, drawing my favorite cartoons, drawing celebrities out of magazines, I even drew portraits of my neighbors to develop a better skill set. By the time I went to high school I knew art would be apart of my profession. I got discouraged before I graduated, by others who didn’t see being an artist as a promising career, so I buried my dream and went after another. I’m a very compassionate person and I’ve always wanted to help others, so I decided to go to college to become a registered nurse. I took many classes in relation to the study of the body and it was interesting to me. I developed a liken to the medical field and was confident in landing a career that would benefit others, and myself. Life took another turn and after several attempts in getting into different nursing schools I did a lot of soul searching and began to seek the lord on what my purpose was. So I looked for careers that fit my skill set and interest. I was drawn to Art Therapy and immediately knew it was the field for me. I obtained my Master's in Counseling and Art Therapy and work as an Art Therapist helping youth with learning disabilities and social and emotional barriers. My goal is to help at risk youth on a larger scale in the future.
