Artistic Hands of Faith

I was born in Los Angeles, California to wonderful parents. My mother was the oldest of 15 children, an aspiring artist, but never achieved her goals because she had to take care of her brothers and sisters. My father was a master carpenter and had artistic skills in building. Between the both of them I was given the artistic talent and a gift from God to be able to draw and paint as an “unschooled” artist. I have never taken art classes because I could never afford them…

…it was then that I carried you

I am a dreamer stuck in the real world. Art and music make my soul happy :)

That moment when the right brain is engulfed in artistic and creative focus, kind of like being in a dreamy trance, is like heroin for my soul…

Paraprofessional discovers artistic talent

Art is everything to me. As a paraprofessional, I’ve worked in the art classroom at a local middle school for the past two years. I learned as much as the students and discovered artistic talents I never knew I had. Art has totally taken over and now with an art studio in my basement, I am able to go to my happy place when I can…

A new beginning

Hi, my name is Sandra Alina and I graduated as a theater critic in 2005 at the National University of Theater and Cinematographic Art, Field: Dramatic Critics, Bucharest, Romania.

I loved art since I was a little child but I didn’t have the opportunity to study it at a high level although I have a diploma in Fine Arts.

I want to learn how to draw and paint because I don’t have the necessary skills for developing my art and Drawing Academy is what I am looking for…

Keeping the spirit of fine art alive in Estonia

Hello!

My name is Sung, I’m 20 years old and live in Estonia, although I’m half-Korean.

I started drawing when I was a child (about six years old) by copying characters from Japanese anime shows and manga. The characters looked very basic but they had a certain appeal. My family loved my drawings (my mom painted as a hobby, my sister has a bachelors degree in jewellery art), but for some reason, I quit art and drawing completely for over ten years.

I bought a sketchbook and started studying from Andrew Loomis, who teaches the constructive method of drawing. I also started studying anatomy in my spare time (by watching YouTube tutorials and reading/studying from books). This year I found out about your other course, the Anatomy Master Class and I have to say, it has been amazing! It teaches you everything you need to know about how different body parts work so it has been a great guide for me on how to draw the figure from imagination…

Never too late

As an older emerging artist with works reflecting both beliefs and concerns for all sentient beings and as love of the dark and folktales.

Growing up in a middle class family, as a tom boy and my Dad’s fishing buddy, nature was always appreciated. But her love of painting was not encouraged and a profession was demanded; but as the opportunity arrived she returned to her dream of becoming a professional artist. She has recently expanded this to include her grandfathers’ technique of wood-burning with paint…
