Hello Everyone! I don't check DeviantArt too often these days, but I am eternally grateful for all the support I found here in the early days of my artwork. I remain active on Facebook and Instagram, so if you want to keep up with my work, you should check over there. If you'd like to contact me for any reason, my e-mail inbox is always open (kristynjanelle@hotmail.com).

Thank you!
-Kristyn

Hello all,

So as most of you know, I have been sort of inactive with my art these past . . . well, years. I maybe manage a couple drawings a year, but the process has honestly become somewhat draining for me. I've done a lot of commissions over the years and only rare pieces for myself, and I think that has taken its toll. Art has in many ways come to feel like a chore. It is saddening for me, but I feel confident that with time my passion to create on paper will return. It's been with me my whole life, fluctuating but always present. I have many ideas for things I'd love to draw and paint, many reference photos saved, etc . . . it's really just a matter of waiting for the inspiration to return to me.

On that note, I have been working to find other creative outlets, in order to express myself without further wearing away at my patience for traditional work. I've been sewing, embroidering, etc., and recently I took up photography. I am by no means an experienced photographer, but I have been having a great time learning the tools of the trade and trying to figure out how to produce my vision using methods so different from my drawings. And on that note, I would like to ask my followers to take a look at my photography account, if they have the time. I wanted a clean slate, something separate from my art profile, so that I could work on developing a style and "brand" so to speak independent of the typical "Kristyn Janelle" style of art. It's something new for me, it's different, and it might totally suck; but I would nevertheless LOVE your guys' feedback, whatever it may be. Many of you have supported my creative journey since day one, and that has made all the difference to me. I wouldn't be where I am if it weren't for the support I found in the early days of my work here on DA.

Thanks for reading, and hope to hear from some of you soon.

Shadow the Black Lab
Part of a series of hunting pieces I have been working on for a friend. 

I recognize that many of my followers are huge animal advocates and are likely opposed to hunting. Therefore, I want to offer my personal take on these pieces. I have never gone hunting myself, nor have I had the personal desire to. However, from an artistic perspective, I see nothing wrong with depicting these breeds of dogs doing what they were bred to do. Everyone has a different relationship with their animals, and I always do my best to capture that unique relationship, even when that might be controversial. Both birds and dogs are some of my favorite animals. Birds inspired me to pursue my art, and dogs have always had a special place in my heart. Taking all of this into consideration, I have done my best to depict hunting dogs (and the birds they point, flush, fetch, etc.) in a tasteful manner.
