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.
I started with Tampa Megacon 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!

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!
