Simply, I am an artist. Pencil-purist; pencil-hater. Learning to paint; enjoying then destroying. And so on. At least I haven't cut off either of my ears yet.
I grew up drawing, but started getting serious about it one day when I locked myself in my bedroom and enlarged a picture of a beautiful person on a dress pattern with a graph like my mom had said I should. I didn't want her to know I was giving in! And I couldn't believe how amazing it looked when I got done. I was astonished. That was when I was around 12, I would say. By the time I was 14, we had moved from South Africa to America, and I was a full-time commission artist. People thought it was just so novel that I was 14, I guess.
I'm still "arting," but I feel like I have a long way to go to be what I want to be and create what I feel inside me. So, I am now working hard to change that!
