This is a little different for me. Illustrating has always been a passion if mine. I did a lot of this in collage. It's been a very long time since I picked up a pencil to draw. With our vacation coming up soon, I don't think I can go two or three weeks without working on something. Easy to bring a sketchbook and pencils while camping.
Working on hand lettering
Working on shading and lines.
Well I think with a little more practice I'll get these skills back!
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
