MY NAME IS DION J. POLLARD AKA artist DionJa’y. BORN IN WASHINGTON DC ON OCT,28 1968. I STARTED DRAWING AND PAINTING AT THE AGE OF 13. I SAW MY BROTHER DRAWING FROM COMIC BOOKS ONE DAY AND DECIDED TO TRY MY HAND AT IT. I EXCEEDED AT DRAWING FROM WHAT I SAW AND DECIDED TO START CREATING FROM MIND AND ON A MORE REALISTIC LEVEL. MY STYLE IS IN DETAIL. I STARTED DRAWING IN PENCIL, BUT SOON GRADUATED TO OTHER MEDIUMS. I FOUND MY LOVE IN PASTELS. I LOVE THE FLOW AND CONTROL OF THIS MEDIUM. WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL MY ART TEACHER GAVE ME A SHCOLARSHIP TO MARYLAND ART INSTUTE. I WENT FOR ONE DAY AND DECIDED ONLY GOD CAN INCREASE MY TALENTS. IT WAS NATURALLY IN ME,GOD GIVEN TALENT THEY CALL IT. I DONT RECOMMEND THAT FOR ASPIRING ARTIST GET THE PAPER. LATER ON I ATTENDED THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY TO ADD THE EXTRA PUNCH TO MY WORKS. MY WORKS MUST WOW THOSE WHO BUY AND VIEW MY WORK. I HAD MY FIRST SHOW SUPPORTED BY A GROUP OF BUSINESS MENT CALLED D.R.U.M. THEY ARE A GROUP OF MANAGERS AND DIRECTORS AT VERIZON WHERE I AM CURRENTLY EMPLOYED WHO HELP MENTOR OTHER BUSINESS HOPEFULS LIKE MYSELF. I DO PRETTY GOOD AT THE SHOWS, BUT CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A PUBLISHING DEAL. I HAVE A 7 YEAR OLD SON WHO A LOVE ABOVE ALL THINGS, NEXT TO GOD. HE SHOWS MY SAME ARTISTIC TALENTS. LIKE FATHER LIKE SON. I CREATE BOTH MIND WORKS AND INSPIRATIONAL WORKS(USUALLY FROM SOMETHING I SAW IN DAY TO DAY LIFE AND HISTORICAL FIGURES. I DO NOT RECREATE OTHER ARTIST WORK. I SEEK MY OWN STYLE WHICH VARIES IN MANY WAYS. HOPE YOU ENJOY MY WORK AND SUPPORT A FUTURE ARTIST BY PURCHASING MY WORKS. I CAN NOT BECOME KNOWN WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THOSE WHO LOVE MY WORK. THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO FIND OUT ABOUT ME.
