Conquer the dream

Conquer the dream

Artwork by Raluca Vintilescu

Hello, everyone! My name is Raluca and I’m 18 years old.

Being here and telling my story revolves around my struggle to follow what I truly enjoy doing, creating art.

My interest in drawing developed a while ago, since I could properly hold a pencil. My grandmother showed me how to draw a cat and from then on, I would draw almost every day. My mom recalls moments where I would say “I haven’t drawn anything today” and get myself to work and draw something. I still have a lot of drawings to remind me of those days, where my father would glue my masterpieces to my bedroom door, so I would have a gallery of my own that kept changing often …

The Sacred Heart of Mary

The Sacred Heart of Mary

Artwork by Genny Dionne

This picture is in acrylic water color and was my first painting on canvas. I am a self taught artist living in northern Idaho.

I am 16 now but have loved drawing from and early age. I draw in most all of my spare time, I have gotten to the point that when I look at something I mentally visualize how I would draw it or what colors I would use to paint it. My family have always been very supportive of my artwork and tell me that I have talent.

I have just this last year really got into painting and am loving it, but in drawing and painting I often have a hard time getting the images in my head onto paper, and I often have a hard time getting it to look realistic or life like!…

Artwork by Megan Collins

Artwork by Megan Collins

Hello, I’m Megan. I grew up on the coast of Maine, surrounded by artists and living in an artists’ mecca. Occasionally I would do some sketching, designed playbills in high school, and never considered it a serious endeavor; I was too busy with music back then, and frankly, thought that I could never be good enough.

Fast forward to my late 30’s when I moved to Hawaii. Everything was so beautiful here that I couldn’t capture it in words. I pulled out some colored pencils that I had for years and began to draw. I drew one of the parrots we had at the time and gave it to my housemate for Christmas and she said, “And you’re not doing this for a living?” I received an easel for my birthday that year, and I’ve been painting and drawing ever since…

My true self

My true self

Artwork by Evelyn Orozco

Hello!!! I’m so excited for doing this, you can’t even imagine.

I’m 17 years old, from Táchira, Venezuela.

I hadn’t told this to anyone but now I’m gonna be sincere and open my heart to all of you. I’ve always been a person who people can rely on, since I can remember I always did what it was expected for me to do, like being respectful, responsible, disciplined, a good student…

One day I started wondering about who I was, if I was just who people wanted me to be or who I wanted to be… Here’s where, without previous warning, my passion for art and that little artist I had since I was a child reborn. Suddenly I found myself reading Andrew Loomis books and watching YouTube drawing videos! …

Lucy

Artwork by Doreen Rowley

I have always attempted to draw portraits since I was very young. I completed a bachelors degree in visual arts in 2003 but the education did not involve learning techniques. Nevertheless, the arts theory education was very rewarding. I am still attempting to improve my drawing and painting skills in between my normal job, household, children etc in the hope that I can pursue my arts practice as a profession on day…
