Michelle Wie’s blog, Black Flamingo, has taken notice. Not only is the teen an incredible golfer, she is quite the artist as well. Read more about the story below.
Michelle Wie’s blog, Black Flamingo, just launched last week and already she has garnered a following.
The 19-year-old’s first blog post was on September 10th, and gave everyone a little synopsis of what to expect from her site:
“so i never used be into art or anything about art. i hated art class back in 7 and 8th grade and just dreaded going to that damn art class. but all of a sudden (i’m a junior in college), the artsy fartsy wheels have just begun to spin. I have all of a sudden been obsessed with drawing, painting, spray painting, and anything to do with diy. so here is my first post i guess about my stuff. I dont feel like any of this fit into any category. maybe they do and im just hopelessly clueless about this stuff but i hope u guys what i do. and if no one likes it…then…oh wells…i guess im truly just a black flamingo.”
Her blog – http://ablackflamingo.blogspot.com, has photos of some of her artwork – watercolors, stencils, spray paint designs, etc. In one post, she revealed that her cousin had taught her how to use a sewing machine and even took to her Twitter page to let everyone know that she was making clothes all weekend long with her in L.A. If you go to her blog, you’ll see photos of quite a revealing dress she made. Think leather and zippers. Seriously. It’s a must see.
So in the midst of this young girl’s professional golf life, which undoubtedly has its fair share of pressure, it’s nice to see that she has a means of an escape, albeit artistically.
