Like wind shakes dew from the morning tree, God sends people to shake us from our complacency. Finished 11/19/2016.
Thanks to Rachel, Taryn, and Sabina for posing and modeling
I'm a teen that loves to draw, paint (w/ oils), and write short stories!
I've been drawing since I was little. My neighbor and I used to go down to my playhouse and draw pokemon from the cards you could collect, and that's how I got started.
I'm best at drawing what I can see, whether it's a picture or a still life. My love for art simmered down for a while, but was brought back to life by the joy of my 8th grade art teacher (Thanks Mrs. V!), and I owe it to her and my other art teachers for helping me to get to where I am today
Just like every other kid out there, I loved to write little stories and staple booklets together when I was a kid, and the love for it never really left me, or was reinvigorated by my previous Language Arts Teacher (Thanks Mrs. D!).
Now, I'm in this funny time in my life where my art teacher, who taught me all I know about painting, is leaving. I'm going to have to motivate myself to paint, which is new for me, and I'm going to have to push myself out of my comfort zone to do that, so this is a funny time I'm at right now in my life.
I was hoping that through Deviantart I'd get exposed to new forms of art and to be with others who have the same artistic interests as I. I also use the website as insurance in case I ever lose everything, just by some accident. I have on here not just the stuff that "looks cool" that I've done recently, but I also have really old stuff, even going back to the pokemon, because that way, when I scroll through my gallery, I can see the real changes I've gone through, the new things I've seen as a result of the experiences and people I've had in my life.
