Daily Inspiration: Meet Tae Ham

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tae Ham.

Hi Tae, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
As long as I could remember, I had always been engaged with the arts. From drawing to writing music, I spent majority of my childhood doing just that. I do remember deciding to devote myself to the arts unapologetically around the age of 19.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Oh, not at all! Trying to balance my art with actually being a functioning citizen has had its difficulties. I really like to consume myself in my arts but the reality is, I still have to make a living. So trying to balance creating for myself and creating for others to financially provide for myself has been one of the biggest challenges for me.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I create every way I see fit! I do specialize in oil paintings but I also create music. I am known to do both. I think I am most proud of the fact that I do not let people limit my creativity. I unapologetically create through whichever avenues I feel called to create through and not all the time is that received well by others but I don’t care. I create for me, first. I also think that is what sets me apart from other artists. I don’t limit myself.

Is there something surprising that you feel even people who know you might not know about?
Interesting question, ha. I don’t think most people know that I dance a lot while I paint. It really helps me feel more connected to my pieces for some reason. I love dancing, its always freed my soul.
