Hello all!
I am taking commissions currently, and would love to be considered to do your creative jobs, as I am a student trying to pay her way through college 🙂 If you are interested in commissioning me, here are some of my starting rates.

Here is my website for examples of my work!

Artists you should see: Tanya Zolotareva (Hazel-Thorn)

Meet Tanya!
She’s one of the most talented artists I know. She’s Russian born, and moved to the states in middle school, when I met her. As long as I’ve known her she’s been very passionate about drawing and art. Also, insanely talented, not only in art, but language and academics. She traveled on the convention circuit in the states for over 5 years. She is currently working in Japan, and still paints and draws on the side.

Follow her on these sites:

A few starting words…


I’ve decided to start posting my thoughts about art and the industry of illustration, advice, possibly some tutorials and such on a blog. I am in no way a writer, but I wanted to express how I feel about the arts that would leave it open for discussion.

In high school, I had a lot of friends that I shared thoughts on art with constantly. Though we would butt heads quite frequently, I learned a lot from these friends. I miss them terribly. One is in Japan with the JET program, and another is pursuing a career in digital photography down in Sydney, Australia. As for my friends that remain in the country, well, growing up and life gets in the way. We still hang out as often as we can, but hey, that’s unfortunately part of getting older. You dont see people as much as you would like to.

So, follow this blog if you would like to, but it really is mainly for expressing my thoughts on various subjects related to art. Chime in, if you wish 🙂
