I have gone to school for programs in Graphic design at both a community college and the Art Institute of Phoenix. Both were helpful in showing me the basics of programs like Photoshop and Illustrator as well as developing my skills with pen/ink/pencil and use of color in my artwork.
I have been a mother for 20 years now and raising a family has taken priority over my artwork, so I have not been making this my full time career.
I am hoping that by directing a bit more focus on my artwork and my desire to illustrate children's books, my goals will be realized and my skills will grow and develop.
I know I am capable of portrait drawing as well and hope that in adding piece by piece to my portfolio I will gain the opportunity to do some freelance projects and develop my abilities to a more professional level than what I have in my current portfolio of work.
Thank you for looking ! :)
