My Bio
2020

Hi! I'm Lainy - I work with charcoal and pastels to create realistic portraits.


Personal Quote: "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"

~Erma Bombeck


Tools of the Trade
General's Chalk and charcoal, Derwent Pastel Pencils and Tinted Charcoal, Panpastels, Strathmore charcoal papers
Instead of finishing a drawing today, I started out with something new. Gouache is a completely new medium to me and I'm so excited to learn. I created swatches as a way to 'break the ice' and explore the color and textures. They are so vibrant and the pearly metallics at the bottom are soooo tempting 😍

Good morning, I just wanted to pop in and let you all know that I've added some of my daily drawings to my shop over on Etsy! They've been a joy to create and I'd love for them to find their forever homes with you ❤️ There are 10 available, ranging from $40 - $80 with free shipping and will arrive with everything you need to pop them into a frame and enjoy in your home. Please click below or just shoot me a message to claim your favorite! Thank you all so much for your support this past month - it's been absolutely uplifting. https://www.etsy.com/shop/LainyArt?ref=seller-platform-mcnav&section_id=7310078
