“In Ancient Starlight We Lay In Repose”
I am have been creating art since I have memory. I work in multimedia, but my love is and will always be in graphite. The pencil can be a Stratavarious. An extension of us when we know our tools and how to make them sing.
Makers of Artworks
Art making is what I do. I make art because the process brings me gratification and self fulfillment.
Challenges lie in constantly improving my art making and expanding my skills.
I paint to live
I was always a artist. After high school I enrolled in a commercial art school. It was not for me. I got married and moved to the country and lived in a geodesic dome. I opened a printed t-shirt business and had art shows to stay alive. Eventually I moved back to the city and went to work for a sign company. Now and then I would show my art with other artists.
I am a wife, mother of 4 children that took up art after neglecting it for many years. I find art gives me the opportunity to get away from everyday life and its a place where I can just get perspective again. Art has taken on a very special place in my life currently. Since I just started I find that art in itself a challenge, meaning it is hard to start from scratch.
My name is Ovidiu Iovanel, I am from Romania, Europe. I am an architect, but since 5 years I only do art (paintings and portraits). For me, painting is a lifestyle.
I want to get to paint in oil in photorealistic style. I am fascinated by the Trompe L’oeil style and international painters such as Michael Lassel.
Help make these mediocre paintings come to life with a formal Drawing Academy Course
I am a 66 yo practicing physician recently diagnosed with a not so fun diagnosis. I have always enjoyed doodling and was guided by my architecturally trained mother on those intermittent occasions when we happened to be talking about drawing and architecture but no formal training.
MY ART JOURNEY
My name is Orlando Nah and I live in Camalote, a small village in the country of Belize. I can reflect to a day whilst in class, almost 45 years ago, our teacher asked the entire class to draw anything and write about it. I took one of the encyclopedia from our school library and as I flipped thru the pages, I saw a rat and decided to draw it. I drew the rat, colored it and wrote about it. This is a very fond memory of mine because it was on this day that I discovered I had a talent, I knew how to draw! My teacher and my class mates were amazed by the fine work that I did. This marked the beginning of my journey as an artist. Every opportunity I got I drew. I did drawings from magazines and comic books, basically anything I could get my hands on.
I am sorry
This my one of incomplete and my best watercolor portrait (yeah it’s incomplete; I lost my promise).
Drawing by Christopher Pam
Art is everything in my life I eat, breath, sleep art. I want to learn the essential and time honoured skills of the old masters to express myself freely.
Life at its fullest
I am a senior with a gift from God – art.
Art, creativity and design is evidenced everywhere, just open you eyes. The challenge is how to imortalize it in an artwork. I strive to do this in every endevour whether it’s a pencil sketch , pastel or oil.
