My name is Wendy Johnston. I am a 52-year-old mother of 4 from Canada. My children are all grown and a number of years ago I suffered from medical issues that prevented me from continuing in the workforce.

Drawing by Izzy Park

I have been drawing my whole life. I have been drawing before I could even walk. Art is something really special to me and one thing that I really love about it is that your drawing choices are limitless. I do have a few struggles in my artwork. I do struggle with drawing two eyes on my portraits, but other than that most of my artwork is good. I don’t really have a style in art, but I do use realism a lot, and that’s why I joined Drawing Academy, so that I could get better at realism. I think that Drawing Academy is a great way to get better at art and it will improve your artwork. I would also love to win the Drawing Academy course because I want to inspire people to draw. Also, you should vote…

Story and artwork from Edoardo

“L’infinito”

Hi everyone, my name is Edward, I live in Switzerland but I’m Italian, from Recanati. I grew up in a family of painters, restorers, musicians, directors and photographers, in short, I have breathed and tasted art everywhere! For me art is, and should always be, a motivation without which a person cannot consider himself an artist. I want to grow up with it and I want it to take me far away, to places where even if for a short time ” Il cor non si spaura…”(the heart is not afraid).
