Drawing and story from Eleanore Ditchburn
Making and sharing art is a central part of my life. The ability to create art is a fundamental way of communication between the artist and the viewer which I treasure.
My challenge when making art is to nurture creativity and hone my skills to express my ideas in an inviting way for the viewer. I only wish I had endless hours to spend creating art.

Hello to all reading this and thank you in advance for your time. For me art is therapy. I say this because I am on forced retirement from work due to multiple health concerns. Drawing and creating allows me to drift away from the pain and hopelessness that chronic illness brings. I started drawing when I was diagnosed about 6 yrs ago. At first I could hardly hold the pencil but I was determined to persist. Learning to draw and producing portraits that people recognize gives me back a sense of accomplishment and self worth. Anyone with or who knows someone with chronic illness will understand this. I share this information not so people will feel sorry for me but to emphasize the importance of art in my life.
I started painting when I retired a year and a half ago. I was surprised to see what I could do, really loving it and how it relaxes me.

I have been drawing/painting for the last 30+ years. Art provides a freedom of expression in a very special way. I have attended various courses over the past 30 years and I am now working solo as a new stage in my life.

I was born into a military family. This offered ME an opportunity to travel and see much of this country. These travels afforded ME a great source of materials on which I have based my illustrative works; and provided me insight into his new vocation, writing. With three children of my own, I have only added to my resources for illustrations and writings. Plus, many years of working as a professional illustrator and graphic designer, I have found myself in a position of determining images and words to sell an idea.

Art is for me a religion, is thee place where I can sublimate my feelings and elevate my soul, it gives me love, trust and understanding for myself and for the others.
The challenge is that professionalism does not mean only a sincere and elevated expression of feelings and stories about life around you. Professionalism in visual art means to use a language of expression already known and cultivated by other artists and to be able to make a large category of public to like and understand your message.

I’ve been drawing for my pleasure since childhood, regrettably however, I have never sought to better my art professionally. I hope this can be a chance for that.
Drawing by Victor Mulligan
Hi, my name is Vic, I’m a self taught artist and so my art suffers from lack of knowledge.
I’ve learned all by myself. I’ve been trying so hard. Art has no value in my country yet we artists try very hard to exhibit our work.
