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!

I love all of you charcoal drawing. They really have inspired me to want to work with charcoal more with some animals. I'm working on a charcoal drawing now and seeing your WIP on some of yours helped me with the texture on my drawing. Your amazing!
