Love is a great force
I rediscovered my for love for art more than a decade ago and I haven’t let it go.
I am a self taught artist, since little I had love drawing and painting.
I have gotten to an age where I’m starting to think about what’s important to me. When we’re younger, we have a tendency to get caught up in just getting through the day, and not appreciate the things and people that make us happy.
Drawing for me is one of those things that make me happy. I took a long time off, not really doing any drawing for over 40 years.
I’ve rediscovered drawing and in turn, rediscovered myself. Since I’ve taken so long off, I need to re-learn the elements of drawing that make artwork something I can be satisfied with.
Realization of a dream
I wanted to learn how to draw since the age of seven! Drawing Academy is a great place to learn drawing. I would like to win this course very much. I will be very grateful to all who support me in the realization of a dream that I have brought since childhood!
I have always been a cheerful person loving art and nature. I am a Master Gardener and my yard was filled with beautiful flowers and herbs.
All of us run into a really big trials in our lives at one time or another. Mine was the loss of my son to Brain Cancer. I was not angry at God for a moment, but I lost my joy in life. I begin digging up flowers and plants that had meant so much to me. I was Heavenly minded and couldn’t get my feet back on the ground here on earth. This went on for years, but I kept my feelings to myself and put a smile on my face.
A voice for the soul
To start describing me, I should say that I’m 24 years old, I’m from Costa Rica, and currently I’m majoring at Dentistry with a full scholarship thanks God.
It is ironically hard to write about oneself but if I had to put it into words I would say that since I was a kid I have always been the kind of person who is very serious and passionate about the things I like and that I work very hard to accomplish my goals.
I’m also a very sensitive person, which sometimes can be a both a blessing and a curse, by that I mean it is an amazing and unique way to experience the world around but from time to time it can be overwhelming.
From Tugboat Captain to Artist
I have tried many forms of art over the years but never had the time to REALLY get into and REALLY learn. Ive done photography since I was 16 (now 52), Even done Tattooing! I worked as a Ferry and tugboat Captain, sailed tall ships as crew. Painted many pretty boats and sold them. My kids are grown now and I have so many physical limitations due to injuries that I have been stuck inside a lot. I have no income at all anymore.
I have been oil painting wet on wet for over a year now. But have recently been learning old school techniques and want to learn other mediums as well.
A journey of the artist
I am a 46 year old artist and sculptor. I have experience of nearly 25 years. I have held many art exhibitions, obtained a lot of honorary certificates and obtained a qualification certificate (drawing and decoration).
Art is my whole life so I decided to write you in order to help me to get a scholarship to continue my studies of art and help promote my artworks (Graduate degrees in Art).
My art obsession
The ultimate dream is to do portraits as I feel people are wonderful subjects as every face tells a story.
I would love to win this art course so I could get the help and teaching that I so much desire. I’m sure I have developed bad habits that would drive professional artist mad, but I’m like a sponge and just want to learn as much as I can to improve my art.
Art? I Can…
My name is Zachary Hill and I am from Porterville, CA. I am 37 and have been drawing for about six months, during which time I have been collecting supplies to start oil painting.
Art is an extremely important piece of my life as it replaces what would surely be a sizable Xanax prescription. I started drawing because I got tired of saying “I can’t” when the subject of art came up, and have been told I missed my calling to art due to my age. However, I believe I found it.
Art is My Passion
Art is my passion and now a second career. I fell lighter and fuller as a painter and fibre artist. Continuous learning, personal growth and great personal fulfillment are but a few of the many benefits of practicing my art.
I love the challenge of creating. Painting in true alla prima painting style is my current painting goal.
