Video summary: Here I am working on a charcoal piece! I do both digital and traditional realism art. I LOVE feeling the charcoal under my finger tips as I work...I truly enjoy drawing.

How and why I got started!

I started this shop way back in 2016 after getting out from a bad relationship. It was one of the most life changing experiences ever in my life.
They used me to try to get ahead basically. They used my talents as an artist and did not truly love me. It left me broken and so depressed... but I picked up the pieces and decided to enter the con scene with my art. I started in late 2017. That is around the time I discovered the furry fandom and other communities. I have not looked back and have continued to do this to this day. I realized and came out as Pansexual, so I started to work on LBGTQ+ related art! I also kept working on my realism skills in pencil to now charcoal and still do comics. I will be working on a visual novel. I create everything from the artprints to the keychains myself! I currently have a wonderful partner that encourages me to push on!! 💙 I focus mainly on gaming, anime and arts in the furry community. I do both human and anthro characters with a mixture of fantasy creature/monster artwork.

The furry communities and members from the art community has inspired me to start working in the con scene. I was very afraid of taking that step but once I did, I realized that this was truly my calling.

I want to introduce new ideas to existing ones but also showcase my charcoal artwork as fineart in the future. I am happy that each piece I sell goes to someone that will enjoy it. It makes me motivated and alive to work in the arts. That is why I keep drawing, and will continue to do so until the end of my days.
I'm grateful for being alive and for being able to draw. I can only hope that I can continue to do this for a very long time.

Thank you for reading!!

Take care and stay safe! Remember - it is never too late to turn your life around. It's never too late to do something different - you just have to start! Don't ever lose hope!
