Love What You Do

Who doesn't want to have fun with what they do? I always knew I wanted the type of job that would allow me to have fun and love what I do. Being an artist allows me just that! While working as a freelance illustrator I was also looking for an additional creative outlet. Etsy allows me that. The fact that I can create illustrations for cards and sell them for people to enjoy worldwide has become both satisfying and rewarding.

As a kid I drew all the time and would often draw things for classmates and family members. After attending college and a specialty drawing school called the Dalvero Academy both my art and creative perspective evolved. I knew I wanted to create personal things that would make people smile, laugh and just feel better about life. I soon found myself creating custom drawings, cards, and illustrating poems and books for people when it was their birthday or if they were going through a hard time.

It all started last December when I decided to do a few Christmas Cards. I couldn't believe the joy and excitement I felt while I was doing them and when I made my first sale! I knew I had found something that I really loved doing. This was the creative outlet I had been looking for.

A Love Of Drawing is not only an illustration and design studio but also an online shop that specializes in creating custom and holiday themed cards featuring African-American children.

I hope you enjoyed my story.

Have a great day!
