I was an Art student many years ago, but life somehow got in the way…
I’ve always felt an affinity with all things creative and have kept myself busy with several projects over the years: card making, doll clothing, all kinds of craft incl fabric art, beaded jewellery and the odd collage.
Recently I have had this overwhelming desire/need to do more and get my talents out from under that bucket.
My mediums of choice at the moment are soft pastels, acrylic on canvas and freehand digital painting.
I’ve taught myself digital painting with Photoshop and ArtRage via online tutorials, which I find very sastisfying.
I’ve never been good at regular painting, so painting digitally is a fantastic alternative and I enjoy learning more and more as I go.
All comments are welcome, even if they’re harsh criticism. I’ve learned so much from all the talented artists here on RedBubble already, I feel indebted to everyone who has made comments on my work.
Thanx for taking the time to read my story. :-)
