From Micheal Smith (Mishy)
I have recently discovered my passion for visual arts once again as I hadn’t produced a piece of work for over 20 years until now. I wanted to experience life before I would restart my work. I certainly have done that now what I’ve learnt is life is all about cycles its ups and downs it’s love and heart breaks.
Drawing is where is turn to when I am overwhelmed with workload and frustration due to my profession, taking me to a different world where I forget the busy distraction of life. Due to my profession (construction) I don’t get time to draw and I missed the only thing where I can be myself. Lately, I’ve been trying hard to take out any little time i have to draw even if it means taking days to complete a piece.

Ever since I was a small boy I wanted to be an artist. Fortunately for me, my Mom and Dad encouraged my art. From kindergarten forward I was drawing whatever struck my fancy.
I retired and started drawing about 4 years ago. Being able to draw portraits was my goal so I signed up for the Drawing Academy art course.
My name is Laura Pedretti, I’m from Italy and I’m really an art lover.
My name is Frances White, I am 68 years old living in Trinidad and Tobago. When I was around 10 years I remember coming 3rd on an island wide competition for students. Right now art is a hobby but I want to become a profession and make a living from it. I am self taught but winning through Drawing Academy and doing the course I will be taught proper rules on drawing which will enhance my works.

is needed, right here, in front of my Canvas, but it does not come on demand! Getting in the flow of creating art, be it an image from my brain or a copy of one of my favourite masterpieces in history, it doesn’t matter much.

To me art is everything. I have nothing much to say

Hello. My name is Lisa Lockett and I started drawing at the age of five. It seemed to come naturally for me and I enjoyed it so much that I could do it for hours. However, I put my art away and attained a degree in Journalism/Advertising from the University Of Missouri-Columbia. There, I studied Advertising and Design and was later able to own my own graphic design firm, Lockett Design, in the University Tower in St. Louis. Later I went to work for a prominent law firm in St.Louis as Marketing Coordinator. I left the firm to freelance as a designer and later an artist because I realized that is where my true passion and talent lies.
I have had no formal art education, but was always attracted towards it since childhood. Finally, I decided to give up my job (been 2 years now) and completely get into arts so that I can practice and study arts (currently studying through books and learning Indian traditional art from a sculptor).
