I'm a 33-year old wife, mom and self-taught artist of 20+ years. My serious artistic journey began as an 11-year old when I decided I really wanted to learn how to "draw people". I sat myself down for hours on end with a tablet and #2 pencil drawing pictures of celebrities out of magazines--usually begging my mom to buy the newest Teen Bop for reference material. After graduating high school, I fell out of drawing on a regular basis. Upon getting married and having a baby 5 1/2 years later, I almost completely fell out of art. In 2013 I began learning how to 3D model within Blender, and it ignited my love for producing art. Soon after I networked with a company called Theory Animation and joined their team as an animator. Along the way, I spent a lot of time learning and growing in regards to animation. It wasn't until the beginning of 2017 that I had something tugging at me to go back to my roots of drawing. I decided I wanted to learn how to draw/paint digitally and so began my journey into the world of digital art. It's been a combination of tutorials, books and teaching myself through trial and error that I've learned how to paint in Photoshop. I'm still learning and ever-growing in my artistic journey and will never stop. Come watch me fumble along and continually improve!
