|"Don't ask, just put the candy in the bucket..."|
I am a college graduate with a BA in Studio Art. My college experience lead me to become an illustrator for a small-town publisher. For my traditional art pieces, I mostly work with Prismacolor colored pencils, ball-point pen, graphite, Sharpie markers, acrylic and oil paints, photography, charcoal, pastels, ceramics, and wire. For my digital drawings I use Paint Tool SAI. As for my inspiration, I turn to animals, nature, fantasy, and Native American culture for inspiration. Fun fact: Chickens were the focal point of my 2015 senior show, "The Chicken Coop". And now I have a flock of over 30 chickens (all of whom are my pets)!
Reflecting on some of my first uploads, I feel that I have matured as an artist since joining Deviant Art years ago. However, I am learning more and more every day from the wonderful artists who inhabit this creative website. And most importantly, I thank God for my gifts, for without him I wouldn't be who I am today.
