Art Competition

Drawing by Fredrika Nel

Drawing by Fredrika Nel

My name is Fredrika Nel. I originally come from South Africa. Two years ago me and my husband moved to Ireland. I am a mother of 3 kids and have 8 grand children.

I love doing all kinds of art but love doing the pencil drawings. I want to go more in to art now that I have the chance. I had no professional training and wish to get professional courses to help me along. I need to get more info on the things that I know and done.

I would like to learn how to draw light at the right angle and shading; how to draw in perspective. I love things to look real.

Choose life

I chose life.

I chose a job, a career in advertising. I chose the big television, a washing machine and a car.

The life of a struggling artist never appealed to me. Instead I spent the last 5 years advancing my career, falling victim to materialism and the slow cancer that is lifestyle creep. The life I was building was fragile, and it took a small push to shatter it into a million pieces.

Today I don’t own a big tv, or a washing machine or a car. I no longer work in advertising.

Art calls to me. There’s no other way of describing it. I’ve ignored the calling, and the cost has been high. It isn’t a hobby, not like playing the guitar or cooking or rock-climbing. Art is scary as hell, and without it my life is hollow.

Inner Workings

Hi! My name is Jayme and I live in Australia. I would describe myself as a quiet person and express myself through my drawings. Drawing is my passion and I particularly love to draw people and landscapes.

Since I was very young I have always enjoyed drawing – all I ever want for my birthday/Christmas is more drawing equipment. I feel that art is a very positive thing in my life and gives not only the artist but everyone who enjoys looking at art a very happy feeling.

Convey with Art

Hello there, I am Eima.

Ever since I was a little girl, I was inspired by animated shows to draw a lot. I mostly drew characters from shows I like. Then eventually, I made my own. Each has their own personality and stories. They also have their own worlds.

With those characters in their worlds, I would like to create a story through art. I believe I can convey meaningful messages through colors put on a canvas…
