When I was three years old, I began my journey to drawing. A friend of the family had a full size classroom chalkboard for her child to draw on. When I visited her house, I would do what any child would do. I picked up a piece of chalk and started creating. Within a few months, I went from basic stick figures to full scale scenes. It was something that I literally “picked up”.
As time pasted, I experimented in several different mediums including: photography, acrylic paints, oil paints, pencil/paper, pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, and clay. I wanted to find what I was good at. I studied studio art formally at the University of Vermont getting my major in this field along with a minor in art history. It was surreal to sit out in the woods of Vermont and draw for hours on end.
Years later, I would occasionally pick up a brush to create, focusing more on my music and digital craft. Recently, I needed to start a series of self portraits to experiment with technique and feeling. So far I’ve created about seven finished pieces and three in the works.
Art is such a blessing in my life and I enjoy creating it in many different mediums.
