Activity


Okay so life circumstances have really got me thinking and I really just want to start dedicating myself to my art. In order to do that I am going to challenge myself to post a piece every two weeks. I am tired of the status quo and I want to move forward as an artist and to do that I need to return to my roots and really start putting all my heart and soul into it. Not sure if anyone will read this, but just needed to get it out there. Now to go finish the piece I am working on so I can begin the steady march forward towards my goal =3

Hi there, :)
So I have been drawing,painting and sculpting since I was a child. I went through a period of time where life just kicks your butt and was distracted by many shiny things and so my art suffered, infact it was nonexistent. I joined this site because a good friend encouraged me to do so and never gave up on me or my unused artistic abilities. I have finally decided that I want to focus on my art no matter what.

I am a traditional artist that draws in both pencil and ink, I also paint with acrylics and sculpt using polymer clay. I haven't really dabbled in any art programs, but I most certainly want to learn so I can expand my abilities. I have no formal training and everything I do is either self taught or learned from other artists and tutorials.

Though I grew up doing alot of copy work(mainly Disney characters) these days most everything comes from my head, sometimes good, sometimes scary (not scary good, more like scary bad what was I thinking that looks like crap scary) and occasionally I get those pieces that make me sit back and think, wow I seriously did that (this is in a good way XD)

Once I get established I plan to open commissions and use a percentage of the money I earn for animal rescue. Currently I care for a small group of feral/abandoned cats in my neighborhood. Animal rescue and support of no kill shelters is a topic dear to my heart, and I hope one day to be able to open my own no kill shelter for unwanted animals that require rehabilitation and that extra dose of love and understanding.

A special thanks to MidnightBluesss for my awesome Nessie avatar! It is just the gosh darned cutest thing ever XD

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you enjoy my artwork <3 Feel free to drop me a note anytime =)

Current Residence: Massachusetts
Favourite genre of music: everything except rap (sorry to anyone that likes it , it's just not my thing)
Favourite style of art: Disney/ Manga/Anime/Comic
