Awe inspired by my dad whom can draw, create, build and manufacture anything. Then by my sister. She could create anything; drawing, sewing unique clothes and costumes and even choreography. I too have a natural talent for creating art in many different areas; drawing, painting, molding and carving. I really started focusing on my desire to be an artist in the 7th grade when I took my first official art class, met my best friend because she was a rival artist and had to seek out the new student who had drawn a six foot Jerry mouse that was hanging on the art room wall. I aspired to draw for Disney. Having someone admire my art other than my family propelled my desire to share my works. I never wanted to be a "starving artist" I pursued a more traditional career path. During my late twenties I was a Flight Attendant and found myself with much more time off than the regular Monday - Friday job and enrolled in a community college. The goal was to get a degree and take some art classes along the way. I found the basic art classes haven't expanded my talent nor propelled me to where I want to be with my art, so I continue to paint and practice on my own. I have had more insight and enhanced ability in the recent year through Youtube videos by artist whom style is close to how I want to paint. I am inspired to paint Hawaiian scenery, more over custom Hawaiian scenery that matches the client's home/office decor. Custom painted in the color scheme of the client intended space.
There are so many wonderous and beautiful things in this world that are so often overlooked or over shadowed due to the hustle and bustle of the world we created to live in. As an artist I aspire to capture those moments, take them with you, and relive those moments.
