About JWalkerArt

On Etsy since 2019

I began creating art in my early 20's. I sat in on a figure drawing class and watched the teacher and the students because I was doing research for a class. At the end of the class the teacher shoved some paper and charcoal into my hands and said I had to participate for the last 30 minutes. I was hooked. Right away it was cathartic and engulfing. It became a way for me to handle stress and life and the challenges I was facing.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with my first autoimmune disease. I have gathered several more since then. But after the onset of my illnesses, art became my sanity and my therapy all in one. It has helped me process my life, my pain, my daily struggles, loss and more. I didn't begin sharing my work until 2014 on my personal Facebook page after encouragement from another artist. My original posts were traditional items and objects around me that gathered my attention. I played with mediums, explored technique and style. In the last several years I began to sketch my pain and experiences as my focus - good or bad. As I was greeted with support and kindness in response it continued to give me courage to expand. So I am now on Instagram, have done commission work and this shop is the result of being asked for prints of my creations. To me:
Art is Life. Art is Therapy. Art is Power.
