Artwork by Janet Reed

I left the career I loved in law enforcement and became self employed. Giving up my career was a horrible transition for me. An incomparable loss. Art has taken my mind away from what I have lost and to a new place. A place of joy and laughter. I found a child hidden in the adult. I had no idea that kid was still around.

Something made me start drawing a year ago. I kept at it. I literally burned hundreds of pieces of paper that I hated to every one piece of paper I kept.

I would love to get back to drawing again

Hi, I’m Paola.

I use to draw when I was younger, than life got in the way and now that I have more free time on my hands I would love to get back to drawing again.

I’ve always had an interest in art, but haven’t had the confidence to commit to a structured art course. Until now. Upon visiting the Drawing Academy site and exploring what you have to offer, I knew this course was for me.

Painting by Petra Rakebrandt

Let go of fear

I am an intuitive coach and yoga teacher who integrates art into healing. For many years I lived a life that didn’t feel right for me and I even avoided making art, but luckily I understood again how art helps me and my clients to understand emotions and to liberate emotions through art and art-making. Also by creating art, we can face our emotions that are stuck and that we usually avoid to let come up, that makes it sometimes challenging to start a new artwork, especially when we know that what is coming up from the subconscious mind can be hurtful. I am amazed at how we can see parallels in life and art, how life is working and that art is just an expression of life.

Drawing by Kenia Fx

I’ve always loved drawing but I did it for myself in my spare time. I had a kid when I was very young so I couldn’t study arts when I was younger. Now that my daughter is grown up I’ve started art studies and I feel very happy to do so.

PAINTING IS MY PASSION!

I’m a woman, 71 years of age, and have been painting seriously since I was 14 years old. I adore painting and drawing, always have, always will, and art is the major passion in my life. I’ve been privileged to be able to sell a few dozen or more of my paintings, and I get the biggest thrill when people want my work and tell me that they love it.
