I'm self taught and everything I create is from my own imagination, you never know (nor do I) what I'm going to come up with next. I love all types of mediums.
I started out at around age 10 or 11 with Pencil, then moved on to Ink and then Watercolor. Now I mainly work with Acrylics. Every now and then I will do an oil painting but the process is too slow for my taste.
In the art field, I worked at a Needlepoint Company (1 yr.) doing handpainted canvases and later for a Major Southern CA Sign Company (12 yrs.) where I was 1 of 2 sign designers working mainly with Adobe Illustrator (awesome job and co-workers!) but I quit to raise my kids.
During my free time as a stay at home Mom I worked with a Jig/Scroll Saw creating fine art on wood to hang on walls and to make cool occasional tables but I don't get to do that right now as my living area isn't set up for that.
So at the moment I mainly create ACEO's and sell them on ebay. Sometimes I do commissioned works for customers and as gifts for friends and family.
I am hoping that Fine Art America will be another way for me to get my artwork out there as I'd really love to be able to make a LIVABLE income out of what I love doing. I've had so many people tell me I should do this, so here I am.... even if you can't purchase my work I hope you enjoy viewing it.
I've rambled on long enough, hope you have a beautiful day!! = ) Debrah
