MeowMay 10, 2014 Quickly sketched while baby was napping. Sad cat inspired by Shannon.
Top painting done by myself a very long time ago when I was in high school. Mom saw a painting like this and made me paint something similar. Bottom photograph gifted and done by Mark, fyrephreak photography.
Just waiting for a very late, but epic breakfast of crepes to be prepared.
I keep hearing about following your passion these days — that there is a natural work you are most suited for and if you can find it, things will unlock naturally for you. The consequence being people who think they are living on the precipice of meaning and cresting over the next rise is the certainty of how their life should unfold. But that never gives pause to this possibility: that work itself is a most unnatural thing for humans and that we do it only to address the exigencies of life.
I wonder what lives my art lives when it gets sold to people and it gets hung up on a wall in a home. If only if I could have my creations report back to me and tell me their tales of what they see and experience…
I bunch of recent sketches in my sketchbook.
It’s a real pen and a stylus! And its hello kitty! Can start drawings on my tablet.
I am an art school graduate who spent the last six years working with children and teens diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have experience at home, school, and residential programs, and ended up being a Recreation Project Specialist at residential program for the very severe children and teens. I finally really got to really put my creativity to use with the work I was doing.
I also have an alter ego that has a life long experience in alt modeling, dabbled in professional go go dancing, and helped to co-create and promote alternative lifestyle events in my city.
And now I am pregnant, not working and contemplating my next steps in life. I am focusing on many projects, and one is to be able to sell my art online as well as locally.
I have had issues with selling art locally, and even though things sell, something tended to get me down about it. It’s honestly scary selling original art, and in the past six years I have been working as a therapist—usually full time—my art practice was shoved to the side, so there was very little art to speak of.
Now I am spending all my time at home, I am getting in the studio more and feeling more confident on selling my art and photography.
Right now I have posted a bunch of my photography I have taken over the years, and with in the month I will have scanned and posted lots of new fine art for prints to be sold online as well.
The sunrise by Glenmore Landing in Calgary, AB.
Selling prints of photographs I have taken with my Canon EOS 5D over the past two years.
Posting on Deviant Art and Society6.
Once I get some new art finished and scanned I will be selling my watercolour and ink pen prints as well.
First piece finished of 2014. Maybe artness is slowly coming back to me. This unicorn was started years ago. Can’t wait to do better fantasy animal portraits. Another idea is right beside it.
