Milley Colon

My name Is Milley i am 28 years old and I live in NYC. I have been drawing since I was 10 years old. Self taught. I didn't realize it was a passion of mine to draw until I was 17 years old. By then I started taking classes in high school and in after school programs.

My talent is mainly duplicating or mashing up images. I discovered in high school that I had a talent in fashion design. I never followed my high school "dream."

I started painting last year. I learned how to paint on my own as well. I never knew I had the talent. It's amazing to learn more hidden gems about yourself as you get older.

I started dabbling with oil pastels three years ago. I never knew what they were for or how to use them. I googled, "oil pastel drawings" rather than " how to use oil pastels" and just from looking at that photo I discovered another talent. I eventually mastered oil pastel painting all on my own. I'm honestly not sure if other artist use their fingers to smooth and /or blend the colors together, but thats the only way I can truly get the best results.

I hope my gallery inspires and I hope if you do purchase anything that it will bring you joy and happiness.

All my art is made with love, even if i am feeling down, i have my art to bring me up! :)
