How did you get started as an artist?

I was always one to visit art galleries and museums and I was particularly drawn to photography. I started as an artist 4 years ago after dislocating my shoulder for the 3rd time in Brazil. My doctor notified me that competitive contact sports were out of the equation for me. I felt a sense of doom, as that is what I lived for, but a few days later I made a decision to practice art full time. I felt it would keep me occupied enough to take my mind off the sports I enjoyed. My art career commenced as a full time hobby but is now turning into a profession.
