When I'm drawing....the whole world melts away. Stresses disappear, all torments of the heart light as a feather. It's in these moments when I hear God most and know his purpose and peace alive in my soul. ♥

-----

It has taken years and endless hours of practice...but I finally feel able to claim the title of "Artist". And I never thought I could love it this much. But I do. I live what I love and I want to share it with you!

Like everyone else I started out in coloring books and stick figures! I was the girl sitting in the back of class, hurrying to get classwork finished so I could draw and daydream. I love to try everything...drawing, jewelry design, music, photography ...really anything I can get my hands on.

But I seem to have found my niche in dry media artwork. The way it blends, the effects and mass amounts of detail I can put into it fuel my love for creating. There are endless possibilities and there is always more room to grow.

Been a while since my last journal so I wanted to say hi! Thank you all for your continued support, it means the world to me!

So first off, last May, I delivered the gigantic check from my 366 project! With continued cards in 2013, we’ve raised a total of $3,000 for the Safehouse and Alternatives to Violence. It was an amazing feeling making that donation and I thank you all SO much for your support!

I’ve been drawing away and learning SO much and I’m excited to keep sharing my artwork with you all! For 2014, one of my biggest goals is to do more of my own original work on top of commissions! I just invested in some new pastels that are perfect for dry media painting and I’m thrilled about these vibrant colors! Be on the lookout! :D

Thanks for checking in!

You're very sweet to say that! :thanks:
I was always impressed by your dedication to draw constantly and with so much passion... Do you ever feel the need to take a break for a while?

I definitely feel the need for a break every now and then. I always take breaks around birthdays and holidays with my family - that time is super important to me! I try not to go longer than a few days at a time, though - I'm just much happier when I can draw. :) Do you take breaks, too? I'm always curious how fellow artists care for their passion & nurture their skills!

Hi! I wanted to ask you, if it's not a bother, if you paint on canvas, and if you do, how do you prepare the surface, I mean, for example, painting rough on the canvas cloth or putting a white paint coat on, and stuff.

Thanks for your time :)

Hi! I've only ever worked with charcoal on canvas once. I really liked it though! I used a pastel primer over my canvas. You just paint it on, sand it down and add however many layers you would like of that. :)
