I most enjoy drawing and oil painting, but I also dabble in crochet and other artsy-craftsy things. At some point I would like to make a career of it (and I do sell my art on Etsy), but currently I'm doing this in what "free time" I have, though I will try to update regularly.
I welcome advice, criticism, and comments on any of my work - I don't mind if you don't like something as long as you have some constructive advice for me and you aren't rude. I really, truly, seriously appreciate anything that can help me improve. Even if you don't paint or draw, everyone has a different aesthetic, so maybe you will notice something I would not catch or have an idea that I have not tried! And if nothing else, please please feel free to give specifics on what you do and do not like.
Thank you so much for visiting my Deviantart site!
Llamas for everyone
