Art is a means for me to express my ideas, mechanically, artistically and humanly…

Capturing the Sublime

I was born in New Mexico but I grew up in Old Mexico, in Puebla. My father is a quantum physicist, my mother a literary editor and writer. I was always stuck in the middle of cultures, being neither truly Mexican nor truly American. Art was and continues to be, my refuge, where I attempt to find peace in paradox…

The joy is in the journey

Hello,

I’m a retired teacher living in The Netherlands. I’ve just found the joy of drawing in the last year, before retirement. I do have a lot to catch up in techniques and skills. So that’s my goal for me. Drawing by heart, the right way and not only copying the reference, but using it to inspire the imagination. Learning this online seems for me the only possible way.

As far as I can judge, Drawing Academy gives a profound course and let me start at the very beginning so that gives me comfort…

Art as reflection

I believe that you only know what you can express. You don’t know what a salad is if you can’t make one. Or would you call an apple tree such if it never produces any apples? I’ve learned that the fruit is the only proof of what is inside you. When you draw, for example, you see a bunch of things in front of you, things you’ve touched, you’ve smelled, you’ve looked at for years, but the moment you try to recreate them in the page, you find yourself having to assess what is the actual shape they have, what is their size, how do they fit in their environment, where are they located in relation to the horizon. In short, you have seen, but you have never observed—you know nothing…

The process

Art has been the most compelling subject in my life since I remember. The idea of me becoming an artist it’s so recurrent that there is no doubt in my mind it will make me feel complete…

My passion

Hello I am a 55 year old who used to draw as a kid. I once entered a TV guide competition, draw the prospector, when I was 11 years old. My mom said they called and told her I had won! But I was to young to receive the prize. A course in the art institute. I was crushed and stopped drawing after that…
