Artist Info:

Hi, my name is Angela. Here’s a little info about myself. I took an art class back in high school 20 years ago. It was an intro class. I learned a little bit of everything, but not a lot to be good at any one thing.

About 10 years ago, I went through a divorce and needed something to help with my anxiety and calm my mind. With me always loving art, I tried painting, but was never good at it, and I eventually gave up.  

I currently work for a hospital on the covid unit. Last year, April 27, 2021, I got injured on the job. With me being unable to work, my anxiety was out if control. I needed an outlet to calm down my brain. So, October 22, 2021, was the first day I picked up paper and pencil and drew something. It was the first time I felt proud of my art. It wasn’t the best, but it was the first time in 20 years I had drawn with a pencil. I was so happy with my work!

Everyday since then, I draw. Yes, I draw something or I work on a piece of art every day, even if it’s only for 10 minutes. I also watched YouTube videos to find out how to do different things like shading, hair, fur and eyes. I have only been drawing realistic drawing since the beginning of November 2021. I have room to improve my art and I’m excited to see how my work will be! I hope all of you who are reading this will come meet me on May 7, 2022. I look forward to showing you my work and answering any questions you may have.
