A Pug portrait that I did
Well.... here goes. I've been drawing and painting ever sense I could pick up a pencil and a paintbrush...(wow I'm starting to get up there!)
I love love love art. I do call myself an artist. The satisfaction I get when my painting or drawing or creation is complete... is worth every second it took to make it. All my life I've had people telling me that I really need to do something about my talent. They would always tell me that I could really make money with my art.
SOOOOOO.... I finally decided to jump in and do something about it. That's why I started my own website: www.ValeriesArtStudio.com -- the wheels in my head are constantly turning and I'm always thinking about new ideas (whether I want to think about them or not, they keep popping into my head...I've been losing sleep lately -- blah!)
My husband has been so supportive and he kepts telling me "never give up". SO, I think I'll follow his advice :)
I mostly work with acrylic paints and professional colored pencils. I LOVE doing pet portraits! People can email me a picture of their pet, and I will create an original portrait and send it to them in the mail. It's really a lot of fun!
I just started getting into digital art, and it's a blast. I can't wait to find out all I can about it. I also just opened up a new shop with lots of cool products! You can check it out if you want: www.zazzle.com/valeriesartstudio*
Thanks for listening!
