First I have to say I love being an artist! There is no doubt about it. It is a part of me. Expressing the colors and characters is not so much of a job for me but a need. I love bringing them to life to share with you all. The faeries, elves, dragons, creatures, mermaids, pirate captains, and hopefully so much more, are things that are always on my mind.
Beyond putting the images in my head on to paper I really love to learn. There is SO much to learn in the art world! I am a person that has to constantly have something to learn or I am not happy. Every artist has there style that they have perfected over the years. I have sort of perfected mine, but I love how it is constantly evolving because I learn something new or find a new tool.
Even though I am a digital artist I have so much to learn from the different mediums. Techniques that watercolor artists, acrylic artists, engravers, sculptors, artists from all backgrounds can teach you something. I started out as a pen and color pencil artist and it shows in my work. I hope I keep learning and evolving.
Its what I thrive on.
