Just Accident or Not?
An accident, yes an accident led me to be where l am today. I was born with severe health complications so that the only places I went was the doctors office, hospital and home. The only thing take with me or get a hold of was paper and a pencil or pen, so naturally I started drawing.
I am 72 years old. I have a masters degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis on Sculpture. After bouncing around the world as a surfer and being a self employed cabinet maker, I returned to my first love, Sculpture. I have had a 30 year career as a sculptor. I displayed my sculpture at the Festival Of Arts in Laguna Beach. One year I displayed a sculptural waterwall. I was taken aback by the interest it received. It was chosen for purchase by the Festival Of Arts for it’s permanent collection. The next summer, it is an 8 week show every summer, I decided to show another water feature along with my sculpture. With a family to support and a public hungry for water features and “feng shui”, I was discovering this a viable way to earn a living as an artist.
Getting back into drawing – hear me roar!
I am a recently new stay at home mom. I had been a workaholic and am finally taking time off to recalibrate my life’s goals. I finally picked up drawing again after many years of hiatus (aka since pretty much high school, and that was decades ago). Work was rather hectic before and one day, in an effort to de-stress and I decided to open up the watercolor kit my wonderful husband bought for my birthday nearly 2 years prior.

Story from Maryam Seyedi Zade
I’m a social science student who loves art but lives in a country that does not care about artists, so I draw for my heart cause there is no money, fame or respect for a poor Artist in where I live.
There are lot’s of challenges that I have to face art supplies are very expensive and there isn’t even a good store or art class near where I live, so have to work part time jobs to pay for supplies and travel two hours and a half to find a store for what I need.

Hello, my name is Elena. I am 37 years old, I live in Moscow. I’m not a professional artist. In adulthood, I studied for several years in the art studio academic drawing and painting. There I was given the basic knowledge, that I use in my work. Currently, I am more focused on graphic works.
I have always liked colored pencils, and I once tried to make a portrait of a dog in such a technique, and I did it. Overall I have made more than 30 dog portraits with colored pencils, pastels and oil. This has been a priority for me over the past few years. I also started to draw colored pencil portraits of people.
